Six Man Rotations Newsbeat

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Braves will stick with six-man rotation indefinitely

Gonzalez announced that right-hander Ervin Santana, left-hander Alex Wood and right-hander Aaron Harang would pitch the club’s upcoming three-game series Friday through Sunday in St. Louis. The team used right-hander Gavin Floyd and left-hander Mike Minor in the first two games in San Francisco on Monday and Tuesday, with right-hander Julio Teheran scheduled for Wednesday’s series finale.

Fredi gets a lot of guff from Braves fans for his in-game management, and occasionally rightfully so. But he’s consistently shown the willingness to think outside of “the book” for long term strategy. This move allows the Braves to keep a wary eye on both Alex Wood and Julio Teheran’s workloads.
