  Just when things were going well for Patrick Weigel in 2017, it came tumbling down over the past couple of weeks. After an unusual, ineffective start from the righty on June 18th against the Columbus Clippers, Weigel had an MRI done on the 20th. The results from that MRI showed definite ligament damage. Weigel than met with the renowned Dr. James Andrews to see if surgery was needed. Unfortunately it was revealed that the 6’6 240 pounder would have to go under the knife and have the infamous Tommy John surgery. Weigel then took to Twitter to confirm his surgery....Continue reading »

David O’Brien dropped a juicy nugget yesterday, reporting that the Braves are showing interest in starting pitchers Chris Archer, Jose Quintana and Sonny Gray. The Braves were linked to these names last year as well, but obviously nothing came to fruition. DOB mentions that the Braves had a scout at Gray’s last start, but Archer and Quintana are higher on their list. Both are great pitchers, but with the pipeline of prospects the Braves have, it may be foolish to make a move for a frontline guy now. However, the Braves are making a serious push and are due...Continue reading »

2017-2018 Stat Predictions MPG: 16.5 PPG: 6.7 RPG: 1.8 APG: 1.5 SPG: 0.4   The Hawks-Malcolm Delaney project failed miserably, and as a result the back up point guard play was pitiful for most of the season. Atlanta had a hard time getting any offensive rhythm going with Dennis Schroder off the court. But with their 41st pick in the draft, Atlanta might have found an answer to their point guard woes. Dorsey played both guard positions in his two seasons at Oregon, but seems poised for a full-time move to point guard with the Hawks. With no quality backup point guard...Continue reading »

  1. Blake Griffin                    Hawks interest: Low It would be interesting to see what a talent like Griffin could do in a system like Budenholzer’s. But if the Hawks are going to sign a superstar power forward, it is going to their own. Griffin is going to get a max-contract from somebody. Maybe he teams up with Russell Westbrook in Oklahoma City? 2. Paul Millsap                   Hawks interest: High The interest in retaining Millsap may be high, but the likelihood of that happening is much smaller. He is a much better two-way player...Continue reading »

  A large part of the team’s recent success has been the improvement in the starting pitching of late. In particular the emergence of Sean Newcomb, who has recorded a quality start in all of his three major league starts coming in to Tuesday. The impressive start has not led to any wins though, as the Braves powerful lineup seems to take the night off when he is on the mound. But Tuesday night’s series opener with the lowly Padres, a team the Braves swept earlier in the season, looked like the perfect opportunity to change all that. And once again, Newcomb...Continue reading »

2017-2018 Stat Predictions Minutes: 27.8 Points: 13.4 Rebounds: 6.9 Blocks: 1.2 Asissts: 0.9 There is a great possibility the Hawks will not be re-signing Paul Millsap, hit the rebuild button and feature four starters 25 years or younger heading into to next season. That is the reality after new general manager, Travis Schlenk, dealt Dwight Howard for scraps and admitted that Millsap will likely get more lucrative offers elsewhere. If that is indeed the case, Collins could be a sneaky dark horse candidate for rookie of the year. And do not tell me it cannot happen, as...Continue reading »

  1. Kevin Durant                          Hawks interest: Low Durant shocked the world with his move to Golden State last season. He has not regretted it though, and he is not going anywhere anytime soon. 2. Gordon Hayward                   Hawks interest: Low Hayward is one of the biggest free agents that could be on the move this offseason, as the Jazz are legitimately worried he is headed elsewhere. He will receive a max-contract wherever he goes. The Hawks would love to sign a talent like Hayward that would fit their style of play, but...Continue reading »

  1. Tim Hardaway Jr.             Hawks Interest: High The #1 spot at this position can be debated between the top three or four guys, but the Hawks should have a high interest in retaining their own player. Atlanta already traded Dwight Howard to clear up cap space, and likely will not be re-signing Paul Millsap. They have the money to re-sign Hardaway Jr. and the restricted free agency capability to keep him from going anywhere. 2. J.J. Reddick                        Hawks Interest: Medium Even if the Hawks do decide to keep Hardaway, they will...Continue reading »

As one of the Braves elite prospects, Teheran began getting his feet wet in the big leagues before his 21st birthday. He spent multiple stints in the big leagues over two seasons before getting the full-time call as a 22-year old, and he did not disappoint. He dazzled in his rookie season, winning fourteen games compared to just eight losses, but more impressively posted a 3.20 ERA and showcased his stellar control for such a young player. The excitement only grew in Teheran’s second season in which he earned his first all-star appearance, going 9-6 with a 2.71...Continue reading »

With the Double-A Southern League All-Star game last week and Ozzie Albies returning from the DL, there was a lot going on with some elite prospects in the Atlanta Braves’ farm system. Although Albies returned and the likes of Mike Soroka, Kolby Allard, and Ronald Acuna were honored in their respective All-Star weeks, it was a hard pressed situation to narrow down a prospect of the week. Nonetheless, a relative unknown in, 2B Alay Lago, is our prospect of the week. As stated earlier, Lago came into the 2017 season as an unknown. Coming in as an international signee...Continue reading »
