Braves: Update on Kirby Yates

Braves trade deadline Yates

The Braves have had a solid showing from their bullpen so far in 2022. Going into Sunday’s matchup against the Brewers, Atlanta is sporting a 3.24 ERA from relievers, good for 10th in the MLB. Now, they may be getting some extra help in the coming months:

Initially, we suspected Yates would be ready around the All-Star Break. That timeline may be a little rich, but you have to think Atlanta is eager to add one of the best closers in the game a few years ago to their staff. Yates had a ridiculous 41 saves to go with a 1.19 ERA in 2019, and if the Braves can get that same guy back coming off of Tommy Johns Surgery, their biggest strength will get even stronger.
