Yeah, pretty much a no brainer. Seems like he is the only healthy starter we have right now.

So, Minor's being pushed to late April/early May instead of mid-April now. The bad news just keeps on coming.

Oh ok. Was just going off a tweet I saw that said if Minor had no setbacks in rehab starts through April 20, we could expect to see him pitch for Atlanta a week to 10 days after that.

Bullpen is going to get a lot of work in April and May. If they come out around 500 by the time Floyd and Minor get back then they'll be in good shape. I guess it's a good thing that the NL east isn't the best division top to bottom.

What y'all think about Harang? Isn't he the one with the weird windup?

Kind of an underwhelming signing (I know it's slim pickings at this point in ST, but still), although I think he's a better option than Garcia. This year's Maholm? Guy who should eat innings and hopefully leave us in a decent enough position to win a game more often than not. On a one year stopgap deal, we could have done worse.

Not a bad 4th or 5th man in the rotation.
For this team to accomplish anything it the post season, one of Teheran, Minor, or Wood is going to have step up and become a stopper like Kershaw. If you dont have that, your almost guaranteeing yourself at least one loss in a series.

This doesn't inspire a lot of confidence out the gate:
The Braves will send Opening Day starter Julio Teheran, Alex Wood and Harang to the mound during next week's three-game series in Milwaukee. Gonzalez is not ready to announce whether David Hale or Gus Schlosser will fill the final spot in the four-man rotation Atlanta will utilize at the beginning of the season.

Are you kidding. Harang is kk with at least one name bubba can pronounce sohe won't get hit with racist hate but he's no different skillwise. We"ve just got to weather the early season storm and not get too far behind until we can limit harang's impact.

I agree on the minor,teheran, santana point though.

Rangers just released Tommy Hanson. Do we go get him back? Would it be worth it to give him a one month audition?

I don't know. I'm not convinced he's fully past all his injury troubles that have plagued him. His fastball has seriously dropped over the last couple of years. Think I read where his average velocity was 89 mph? He's not a good enough pitcher to consistently deal with that and be successful. If we were to do anything with him, I'd hope it would be a minor league deal or a deal with a small guarantee and loaded with incentives.

I would love to see him find success, but I don't think its with the braves this year. might be able to reinvent himself as a reliever, but what do I know?
