In some more grim news for the Braves, Tucker Davidson left the third inning of yesterday’s game with left forearm tightness. His fastball velocity was sitting between 92 and 94 in the first inning but fell all the way to the high-80s during the third frame, which is never a good sign. After the game, Brian Snitker said he would be placed on the Injured List.
Snitker said Davidson tested well after leaving the game. But he'll undergo a MRI tomorrow and then go on the injured list

The promising thing, obviously, is that Snitker said Davidson tested well after departing from the game. Hopefully, the MRIs don’t reveal anything too severe, and he can rejoin the team in 10 days or so. We’ll keep you updated with the results as they become available.
