    Cincinnati Reds (10-11) @ Atlanta Braves (10-11)

    @


    CINCINNATI REDS (10-11) @ ATLANTA BRAVES (10-11)






    THURSDAY APRIL 30, 2015 @ 7:10 PM

    MIKE LEAKE, RHP (0-1) 3.90 ERA



    Leake delivered a second straight quality start with seven innings vs. the Cubs, but he gave away a pair of leads on homers by Anthony Rizzo and nemesis Chris Coghlan. His nine strikeouts were a season high.
    SHELBY MILLER, RHP (3-0) 2.05 ERA



    Miller has relied heavily on the sinker he developed late last season, and he has also shown consistent command with both his four-seam and cut fastballs. He has produced a 2.02 ERA over his past 11 starts, dating back to Aug. 23

    FRIDAY MAY 1, 2015 @ 7:35 PM

    ANTHONY DESCALFINI, RHP (2-1) 1.04 ERA



    During a 5-2 loss to the Cubs on Sunday, when only one of his five runs allowed was earned over five innings, DeSclafani wished he located his pitches better. He missed too much over the plate and lacked an effective slider.

    MIKE FOLTYNEWICZ, RHP (0-3) 2.08 ERA (GWINNETT)



    Foltynewicz will be making his first major league start, replacing Trevor Cahill. He has looked dominant with Gwinnett posting a 2.08 ERA but has failed to get a victory. Foltynewicz pitched in the majors last season, in a relief role, going 0-1 with a 5.30 ERA.
    SATURDAY MAY 2, 2015 @ 7:10 PM

    JASON MARQUIS (2-1) RHP 5.48 ERA



    Marquis tied a career high with 113 pitches and eight innings of work in a 9-6 win over the Brewers on Monday. His sinker appeared to be working well as he induced three double plays.
    ERIC STULTS LHP (1-1) 4.03 ERA



    Since being damaged by the home run in both of his first two starts, Stults has delivered two strong outings. He has surrendered eight hits in the 12 1/3 innings he has completed during his past two starts.
    SUNDAY MAY 3, 2015 @ 1:35 PM

    JOHNNY CUETO (2-2) RHP 1.95 ERA



    Cueto has worked back-to-back games of eight innings vs. the Brewers. The first one was a career-high 125 pitches, but on Tuesday, he used only 85. His two mistakes were hanging curveballs, both first pitches hit for leadoff home runs.
    JULIO TEHERAN RHP (2-1) 4.67 ERA



    After evaluating Teheran's recent struggles, the Braves want him to get back to consistently relying on his fastball. But the Nationals missed just two of the 19 fastballs they swung at against him on Tuesday.

    About as quite in here as our bats were tonight. Great pitched game by Shelby Miller. CB's dropped 3rd strike was the turning point in the game. Got to see Veal tonight and first impression by the first batter wasn't good, but he settled down a little. Plenty of speed from the left side. Any news on CJ? Ready to see how Folty fares in his first start tomorrow. Lets start a little winning streak guys. Never mind fractured hand. He will be out for a few weeks. Any idea who we replace him with? I know Folty is taking his spot at the moment, but could make room for another position player. Get read Goose, your chance is here.

    CJ broke his hand or wrist, not sure which one and is already on the DL. I'm pumped for Folty maņana.

    And for a supposed excellent defensive catcher...Betancourt is crap at framing pitches

    http://www.statcorner.com/CatcherReport.php

    Of course small sample size but last year wasn't kind to him when he was out there either.

    Sucks to have both of our catchers taking away strikes from our pitchers..

    We knew this coming in to the season. Time to scout younger players and determine the market value of the veterans.

    I'm very excited to see Folty pitch tonight. Watched him several times over spring training and want to see how/if he has improved with his location. He needs to get his learning curve on in the majors. His stuff reminds me a little of Smoltz, without the splitter of course. Let him go out there every five days and see what he can do. While on the subject, I wish someone would come with a trade offer for Stultz. I know he has pitched well his last two outings, but I would like to see Williams Perez brought up as well. These guys need to start showing what they can do at the major league level. Learn under our vets and McDowell and see what we have in them. Lets go Braves.

    Sort of doubt it until they want to give him the everyday job. Callaspo and Peterson have shown enough to merit at least 3 starts per week at 3B/2B IMO. I still think Peterson is better off as a very good utility man but unless Peraza is ready to stay and play everyday I think we continue with what we've got - maybe give Kelly Johnson some infield starts here and there.

    Not like he is doing great in AAA. .234/.253/.286/.539

    Past three seasons he has had great springs and did nothing after.

    I'm definitely good with this type of lineup...simba just can't hit in the top of the order.
