Braves: Kirby Yates nearing return

The Braves have several pieces currently on the IL — most notably, Ozzie Albies and Spencer Strider, who could both return at some point during the postseason. However, Kirby Yates is also close to coming back, and he’s set to throw a simulated game on Friday.

As Toscano notes, Kirby Yates’ role with the team moving forward isn’t known. As of now, I would say he’s a long shot to make the postseason roster, but that could change with just one injury. We saw how many fresh faces made an impact during last year’s World Series run. If the Braves make it back to the Fall Classic, there’s a chance Yates eventually plays a role, so it’s promising to see him nearing a return right as the postseason is set to begin.
