Following another dreadful performance for Tommy Milone in a Braves uniform, the team decided to place him on the IL with left elbow inflammation.
The #Braves today recalled RHP Huascar Ynoa to the active roster after placing LHP Tommy Milone on the 10-day injured list with left elbow inflammation. The club also outrighted INF/OF Charlie Culberson to the club’s alternate training site at Gwinnett.

Perhaps this is why the lefty has struggled so mightily in his first three starts with Atlanta. However, it could be a case of the Braves manipulating the roster and prolonging the decision of whether or not to designate him for assignment.
In three starts with the Braves, Milone has an unsightly 14.90 ERA, making it through just 9.2 innings. Amazingly, Atlanta has managed to win all three games, but that’s not sustainable, especially heading into the postseason. Milone’s been able to avoid walks. However, his stuff looks like batting practice out there. It’s very possible Anthopoulos has seen enough and is cutting his losses on the only player he dealt for prior to this year’s trade deadline.
In a corresponding move, the Braves have recalled Huascar Ynoa. Given the current state of Atlanta’s rotation, I wouldn’t be surprised if he received another chance at starting. The Braves also outrighted Charlie Culberson to the Gwinnett training site after no team claimed him on waivers.
