The Braves are almost all the way back. Their rotation is finally healthy, and the bullpen just got a huge boost in the form of Collin McHugh. Michael Harris is also set to begin his rehab assignment in Gwinnett today, and another key piece in Raisel Iglesias could be joining him soon.
#Braves manager Brian Snitker said they haven't decided if Raisel Iglesias will throw another live BP or begin a rehab assignment on Thursday. Either way, he's set to throw again and progressing. Rehab assignment should happen sooner than later.

It’s very possible Harris will rejoin the Braves this weekend as they take a trip to New York to face the Mets for the first time all season. Raisel Iglesias is probably a little bit behind him, but in a couple of weeks, he should be back in Atlanta.
At that point, the Braves will be by far the healthiest they have been all season, providing they don’t suffer any more unforeseen injuries, and they still won’t be 100%. Travis d’Arnaud remains to be cleared from the 7-day concussion IL, and Orlando Arcia is still recovering from a micro-fracture in his wrist. Thankfully, the Braves have avoided any serious issues, and it seems possible they could be at full strength within the next month.
