The Braves had a 6-6 record after heading into their first day off last Wednesday. The .500 record doesn’t mean as much as the individual performances the players are giving out on the field.
The players batting well are Evan Gattis, Chris Johnson and B.J. Upton, all with eight hits. Ramiro Pena, Jordan Schafer and Justin Upton all had seven hits. Tyler Pastornicky and Juan Francisco both had 10 hits and leading is Joey Terdoslavich with 11 hits.
Dan Uggla, Ernesto Mejia and Blake DeWitt have yet to excel in batting, each only having three hits. Reed Johnson follows with only four hits and Jason Heyward with five hits.
Leading in the bullpen is Julio Teheran and Kris Medlen, both having pitched five innings and having a 1.80 ERA. Teheran leads with seven strikeouts, while Medlen achieved four strikeouts.
Struggling in the bullpen is Ryan Butcher and Jonny Venters, both having pitched three innings and have a 6 ERA. Craig Kimbrel and Cristhian Martinez both pitched four innings and have a 6.75 ERA.
The Braves have a full schedule for the rest of March and play the Cardinals on Tuesday.
