The Braves own the best team ERA in baseball, which is beyond incredible when considering the amount of injuries they’ve had to overcome throughout the season.
Max Fried and Kyle Wright — two pitchers who finished inside the top 10 of the NL Cy Young voting a year ago — have made a combined ten starts. Closer Raisel Iglesias missed the first month of the season, Collin McHugh was out for a similar amount of time, and Dylan Lee and Jesse Chavez are currently on the IL.
That’s a lot of missing firepower, but the promising news is that most of these arms, if not all of them, will be back over the next couple of months. On the latest episode of SportsTalkATL, we go through every Braves injury as well as when they are scheduled to return to action.
