Has Tucker Davidson solidified himself in Braves rotation?


Atlanta Braves pitching prospect Tucker Davidson had yet another solid pitching performance on Wednesday night against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Davidson, who was in line to earn his first career win, gave up only four hits with four strikeouts and a walk in six scoreless innings of work, and lowered his ERA to 1.52.

In his three starts for the Braves this season, Davidson has allowed just three earned runs, 10 hits, seven walks while striking out 14 in 17.2 innings.

Has Tucker Davidson solidified himself in Braves rotation? 92.9 The Game Braves reporter Joe Patrick joined the Midday Show to discuss if he's earned a long-term role as a starter.

"He looks phenomenal this year," Patrick told Andy and Randy. "He came up last year, obviously, and struggled a little bit in the one start that he had but then he spent the Covid period developing a slider and that's been the biggest difference for him this year."

"You love to see the way that Tucker has developed so far. He seems like he's got a good head on his shoulder. He's probably atop that conversation of these young Braves starting pitchers that we think could be breaking in at the Major League level and making a big impact."
