"Bullpen start" has become a dreaded phrase for Braves fans


The Braves won their series vs the Seattle Mariners over the weekend. The one game they lost, however, was a dreaded “bullpen start”. The Braves are now 0-3 in these games as Max Fried and Kyle Wright continue to be sorely missed in the starting rotation. Braves fans have now become adverse to this term as their club has championship aspirations.

“We can keep rolling these bullpen starts out there, or we can say we have a guy (Michael Soroka) that we know when he’s on we can count on him. I don’t know what the holdup is,” Carl Dukes questioned.

Soroka is currently 0-2 with a 4.91 ERA pitching for Triple-A Gwinnett in seven starts.
