    Atlanta Braves (50-42) @ Chicago Cubs (39-52) 7/11-7/13



    @



    Atlanta Braves @Chicago Cubs



    Friday, 7/11 4:05 PM

    Alex Wood, LHP (3-6, 2.77 ERA/3.46 FIP/3.34 xFIP) vs Jake Arrieta, RHP (5-1, 1.78 ERA/2.06 FIP/2.60 xFIP)



    Wood has allowed two earned runs or fewer while completing at least seven innings in six of his 10 starts. The southpaw has produced three strong starts since experiencing a month-long stint in the bullpen to limit his innings.


    Arrieta did not get a decision in his last start against the Nationals, and also did not have as much drama as his two previous starts when he flirted with no-hitters both times.
    Saturday, 7/12 4:05 PM

    Mike Minor, LHP (2-5, 4.54 ERA/4.53 FIP/3.58 xFIP) vs Edwin Jackson, RHP (5-9, 5.05 ERA/3.84 FIP/3.91 xFIP)



    Minor has allowed a home run in 10 of his 13 starts, including each of his past six. The southpaw had also surrendered at least seven hits in five straight starts before limiting the Mets to two hits in seven innings Monday.


    Jackson retired 13 in a row in his last start against the Reds, but he also struggled and had a tough time retiring anyone in the fifth. This will be his last start before the All-Star break.

    Sunday, 7/13 2:20 PM

    Julio Teheran, RHP (8-6, 2.57 ERA/3.35 FIP/3.71 xFIP) vs Travis Wood, LHP (7-7, 4.64 ERA/4.20 FIP/4.61 xFIP)



    Teheran was humbled as he surrendered a career-high 11 hits and matched a career-short start of 3 1/3 innings against the Mets on Tuesday. The All-Star hurler had allowed three earned runs or fewer in 16 of his previous 18 starts.


    Wood is hoping to finish the first half strong, and was encouraged after his last start, even though it was a loss. He hasn't gotten past the sixth in his last three starts. This will be his second career meeting against the Braves.

    Arrieta is looking really good but so is Alex. Could be an interesting game.

    What a joke. Give up one run on a bases loaded walk then tie it up in the 9th and give it right back to them with two outs. So frustrating!

    yup, that's why the braves lost because of fredo. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Ain't a cuban post without it *****ing the **** out about Fredo. Pretty sure that's the only reason you post. Anybody else found it interesting how he wasn't here during that 9 game win streak...then once they start losing..back up with it again? Can't only be me...oh well.

    Nats lost so we didn't lose any ground...but again lost a chance to gain ground.

    CJ ties it up with a long homer, nice to see him take a good hack.

    Braves Sign Yenier Bello
    By Aaron Steen [July 12, 2014 at 12:39pm CDT]
    JULY 12: Bello finally has his visa and is en route to Orlando, MLB.comís Jesse Sanchez tweets.

    MARCH 3: Bello received a $400K signing bonus and an invite to big league Spring Training, according to Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes (Twitter link).

    MARCH 1: The Braves are completing a minor league deal with Cuban catcher Yenier Bello, an industry source tells Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com. The contract includes a signing bonus and a Spring Training invitation.

    Bello has reportedly drawn interest from as many as 20 MLB clubs. Terms of the agreement arenít yet known, but the 29-year-old wasnít expected to command a contract in the same range as recent Cuban signees such as Jose Dariel Abreu and Yasiel Puig. Bello is older than 23 and has more than three years of pro experience, so he wonít count against the Bravesí international spending limit.

    In Cubaís Serie Nacional in 2011, Bello hit .274 and slugged 13 homers over the seasonís 90-game schedule, so heís expected to bring some power to the backstop position. Sanchez writes that heís likely to begin the season in the minor leagues, however. Evan Gattis currently projects as the starting catcher for the Braves, who also have Gerald Laird under contract for 2014.
