Braves make a flurry of roster moves ahead of series with Mets

Vaughn Grissom call up

After clinching the division last night, the Braves made a plethora of roster moves ahead of their series against the Mets. Most notably, they are calling up 2020 fourth-round pick Spencer Strider.

Another intriguing move: the Braves optioned Sean Newcomb to Gwinnett. Newk’s been decent since returning, so I thought he had a chance at making the roster for the NLDS. I wouldn’t totally count it out. Perhaps the Braves just want to see what they have in Dylan Lee and Spencer Strider. If one or both impresses enough to earn a roster spot, Newk’s odds of participating in the playoffs plummet. We’ll see how severe the injury to Santana is, but he will be available to come off the IL in time for the NLDS if he’s healthy and is needed.
