Braves add Daniel Young to the roster ahead of their series with Mets

Ahead of a pivotal series against the Mets, the Braves added Daniel Young to their active roster.

This is nothing more than Alex Anthopoulos doing a good job of manipulating the roster. Following their stellar performances against The Fish, Ian Anderson and Bryce Elder are back in Gwinnett. With Max Fried still on the IL with a concussion, the Braves used the extra spot to add Young.

Young began the season with the Mariners and only made two appearances with the major-league club, recording an unsightly 7.36 ERA over 3.2 innings of work. If everything goes according to plan, he won’t see the mound against the Mets. However, Young could be used to eat innings if a garbage time situation occurs, saving the rest of the Braves’ arms.

Currently, Atlanta has yet to announce a starting pitcher for Thursday’s series finale against the Mets. The hope is that Max Fried will be cleared to start against Jacob DeGrom that day, but right now, that has yet to happen. We’ll keep you updated with any roster changes as the week continues.
