Braves: Huascar Ynoa breaks his hand after punching the dugout when exiting his start against Milwaukee

Huascar Ynoa had been a bright spot in what has been a terrible start to the season for the Braves, but now it looks like Atlanta will be missing him for a few months.

It seems that the Braves are epitomizing Murphy’s Law this season — anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Even after giving up nine hits and five runs over 4.1 innings to the Brewers, Ynoa still had a respectable 3.02 ERA and 1.05 WHIP for 2021. He has been even more impressive at the plate, notching six hits, two home runs, and six runs batted in over 17 at-bats. His grand slam against Washington was absolutely one of the high points of the season. Edgar Santana will replace Ynoa, and while I love his passion, this is a massive loss for a Braves team that was already struggling to get consistent pitching. Santana has pitched three innings for the Braves in 2021, allowing four hits, two earned runs, and two walks.
