7/30/2015 | GM Hart happy to bring in a talent like Olivera

When Hector Olivera stood as one of the most attractive Cuban free agents this past winter, he drew the attention of some Braves fans who hoped he'd end up with their club. But that interest paled in comparison to the attention he received once it was learned that the Braves had actually acquired him on Thursday.


7/30/2015 | Buchanan steps in for Hamels vs. Braves

The Braves have rarely fared well when facing a Cole Hamels-led Phillies team. Luckily for Atlanta, they probably won't have to deal with him much anymore. David Buchanan makes the start for the Phillies while Williams Perez comes of the DL to pitch for Atlanta.

7/29/2015 | Johnson, Pierzynski among potential trade chips

7/29/2015 | Miller, Harang face off to open series in Philly

7/28/2015 | Road woes continue to hamper Teheran

Though there is certainly reason for the Braves to explore options to trade Julio Teheran, they do not necessarily want to do it now, when they would be selling low on him. But as the young pitcher continues to struggle, there is also reason to question whether his original value will return.


7/28/2015 | Regaining timing, Freeman launches homer

Though the Braves were concerned when they saw Manny Banuelos throw a few fastballs that registered between 86-88 mph during Friday's start in St. Louis, they did not decide to shut the left-hander down until he arrived at Camden Yards on Monday afternoon still feeling some discomfort in his pitching elbow.


7/28/2015 | Wood running smoothly after change in mechanics

Alex Wood shifted his position on the rubber to the first-base side, and on Monday, the results were terrific, as the young Braves left-hander held the Orioles scoreless for 7 1/3 innings.


7/27/2015 | Wieters walks off with Markakis' homecoming crown

Nick Markakis was the pregame focus as the longtime Oriole returned to Baltimore for the first time. But by the time Monday night's game was over, Matt Wieters was the story, homering in the 11th to give the O's a 2-1 win over the Braves.


7/27/2015 | As Markakis reunion continues, Jimenez faces Teheran

Nick Markakis, who made his return to Baltimore on Monday night, will still be there on Tuesday, when the Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez takes on the Braves' Julio Teheran in the second of three games at Camden Yards.

7/26/2015 | Wisler conquers jitters, beats baseball's best

7/26/2015 | Smoltz adds levity to solemnity in Hall speech

John Smoltz did not intend for his Baseball Hall of Fame induction speech to run as long as it did. But it only seemed fitting that the last man to wear No. 29 for the Braves' organization spent a little more than 29 minutes extending gratitude and drawing some laughs with that same sense of humor that made him such a beloved teammate during his legendary pitching career.
