Eddie Rosario

Two crucial Braves players returned to the active roster in time for the Fourth of July festivities. Monday, outfielder Eddie Rosario and left-hander Tyler Matzek returned to the active roster after completing their rehabilitation assignments.

Ford, who turned 30 on Monday, was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett and right-hander Silvino Bracho was designated for assignment to make room for Rosario and Matzek.

He’s been sidelined since late April after undergoing an eye operation to treat blurry vision and swelling in his right retina. Over an eight-game rehab stint with Gwinnett, Rosario was 9-for-33 (.273).

It will be nice to have a left-handed bat in a right-handed-heavy offense in 2021, and the National League Championship Series MVP can do just that. In the first half of the season, Rosario was just 3-for-44 and admitted to playing through an eye ailment. Rosario started the game against the Cardinals on Monday.

As manager Brian Snitker put it, “It’s fantastic to get him back in the mix, another left-handed bat.”. In the event that he is correct, “we all know what we can do,” and “hopefully he is right today.”

Snitker said, “I think it’s wonderful to have another left-handed hitter to mix in there and maybe balance things out a little.” In the absence of Ozzie Albies (due to an injury), he becomes yet another switch hitter. Postseason success was a result of our lineup’s ability to maintain balance.”

In the outfield, the Braves have Ronald Acuna, Michael Harris, Adam Duvall, Marcell Ozuna, Guillermo Heredia, and Amed Rosario to choose from. While Acuna and Harris are the Braves’ usual starters in the right and center fields, there are other options available to the team should the need arise. An extra channel to get players into the batter’s box is provided by the use of the “designated hitter.”

We’ll ride the hot hand if we get one, Snitker added. “Sometimes things work out for the best. To be sure, having excess is preferable to having none at all. As of right now, we’ve got a nice excess.”

In his two appearances at Triple-A, Matzek struck out five batters. Since May 10, the 31-year-old hasn’t thrown a pitch. He was a key cog in the Braves’ World Series triumph last year, just as Rosario had been. Similar to Rosario, Matzek will look to bounce back after a shaky start to the season, in which he went 5-13 with a 5.06 ERA.

Matzek “is doing terrific,” Snitker gushed. These conflicts and everything else has not spared him. ” That is, as long as he is in a good mood. When he’s ready, we’ll get him back into this.”

On Monday, the Atlanta Braves took on the St. Louis Cardinals in the first of a four-game series. Right now, both of these groups are in the mix for the wild card positions.

Duvall will not swing for “a couple of days,” according to Snitker. With a hand injury he sustained over the weekend in Cincinnati, Duvall is currently listed as day-to-day. A platoon of Duvall and Rosario is a possibility for the Braves, who may not want to overtax Rosario upon his return.

Recovering from an Achilles injury, right-hander Mike Soroka has been working out at the team’s Florida training facility. On Sunday, he took part in live batting practice. As far as Snitker is concerned, Soroka is “coming closer” to entering a rehabilitation facility. Soroka, who is just 24 years old, was a first-team All-Star in his final full season in 2019. Adding him in the second half would be a nice compliment, but it’s not a necessity.

Before the Aug. 2 trade deadline, the organization will not know what Soroka can give until he goes out on rehab, according to Snitker. When he does that, I don’t think we can get any sense of what’s going on until he does that.”

Eddie Rosario

Three of the team’s most illustrious players are slated to retire at the end of the season: Adam Wainwright, Yadier Molina (out with an injury), and Albert Pujols. The Cardinals’ series in Atlanta this week could be their final meeting with each of them.

He replied, “You’ll be unable to move around the stadium with all those sculptures they’ll be putting up “They’re probably going to add three more.”

The Braves lost Wainwright, 40, to free agency. When he was acquired by St. Louis in exchange for J.D. Drew in 2003, he was selected by the team in the first round of the 2000 draught. First, Wainwright made his name with the Cardinals, earning three All-Star honors and spending 17 years as an integral part of one of the best teams in the country.

Since Snitker served as Wainwright’s manager in Double-A, the two have maintained a close relationship.
