    Folty is just bad. He's had 5 years and has been bad in all but 1, and that is clearly a fluke. Soon as the guy walks people he's toast, instant 4 or 5 spot, gives up tons of home runs. Tired of watching him pitch, he doesn't have what it takes for the MLB. And Touki looks to be headed down rhe same path, supposedly has great stuff, yet is looking like a bad pitcher.

    Get both off the roster Pronto. Time to give Ian Anderson Faulty's spot, he cannot be worse. I hereby refuse to watch any games folty starts, if he continues to pitch for this team and isn't DFA.

    He's just horrible dude. 5+ years of of below mediocrity. Well 2018 was a good year, but obviously as seen by the rest of his work that was a fluke. Time for him to be DFA. That trip to AAA last year clearly didn't help him. He's just bad, bad, bad.

    I wouldn’t go that far. Outside of his second playoff start, he was very good after being brought back up. A lot of pitchers so far have looked off or have gotten hurt. I’m assuming his conditioning isn’t there yet. Even when he was struggling last year he was still throwing heat.

    Per Mark Bowman on twitter: Foltynewicz has been DFA'd effective immediately. Chad Sobotka recalled to take his roster spot.

    The nightmare is over.

    Damn DFA’d seems a bit extreme, especially considering the lack of experience we have in the rotation already.

    He had 5 years to show something good. Only time he did was 2018. And when you look at his overall career, that looks more and more like a fluke year. Dude always imploded after walks or not having calls go his way, and was always victimized y the home run ball. They tried sending him to AAA last year. And then there was the absolutely unforgivable game 5 NLDS implosion where he got the braves eliminated before they could even bat.

    It was not extreme, it was justified. In fact one can say it was overdue. He's just terrible, no other way to describe it.

    He was our second best pitcher after he was brought back up from AAA last year, especially in September when he had a 1.50 ERA his final 5 starts. He was tremendous his first start against the Cardinals. You can argue without his game 2 performance the Braves don’t even see a game 5. There has to be more going on we don’t know about. I’m surprised by the DFA.

    Something is either physically or mechanically wrong with Folty, as he's gone from a guy who threw 96 to 98 to a guy who throws 90 to 91.

    Something I'm seeing on Twitter makes me feel awful for what I've said about Foltynewicz. These folks may be onto something--he looks internally ill. I thought he looked thinner but people put 2019 and 2020 images next to each other and something looks like it just ain't right. Looks horrobly wrong. Face looks sunken, looks like he's lost 30 lbs, and unless it was camera and lighting effect, he looks jaundiced. I believe he is not well internall

    Folty being DFA’d tells me that something is wrong. For 1.5 of the last 2 years he has been a really good pitcher. If they didn’t believe that, I think they would have let him walk and kept Julio.

    I don’t know what the “something” is, but I don’t think Folty is right.

    It was just mentioned on the Braves broadcast that AA said Ian Anderson isn't ready right now but if he is at some point this year the team won't hesitate to pitch him.

    Well, this Is getting ugly, Wright struggle tonight, so there's three guys in the rotation That you not know what to expect, can't really blame AA though, Hamels and Félix were supposed to be part of the rotation, but after Folty was Dfa'd AA have to be on the look for a starter, or We are going to be toast.

    This team will not make the playoffs striking out like this, especially with bases loaded nobody out like that. Then like writing on the wall, Wright wallks everyone and immediately gives up a 5 spot directly following the braves bases loaded failure.

    This team isn't good and the evidence is glaringly obvious.
