Braves: Josh Tomlin hits the injured list

9531910091104 stl at atl

Ah, the mysterious injury bug has struck again. Just over an hour before the Braves matchup with the Dodgers in Game 2 of their three-game series, the team announced Josh Tomlin has hit the 10-day injured list — retroactive to August 29th — with a neck strain.

Obviously, I hope there isn’t actually something wrong with Tomlin. Perhaps he is suffering from a legitimate injury, but my money is on this being more of a due diligence.

In his place, Edgar Santana has re-joined the team after a brief stint with Gwinnett. I’m truthfully not sure what the Braves are planning to do with Tomlin. I’ve appreciated what he’s given the club over the years — both on the field and as a veteran leader in the clubhouse — but it’s pretty obvious the Braves have better options. It’s long past time to rip the band-aid off.
