It is always unfortunate to see one of our local products in Major League Baseball get sent down to the minor leagues. That happened over the weekend when the Atlanta Braves sent down starting pitcher and Shen graduate Ian Anderson to Triple A Gwinnett. Ian has had issues with his command and control virtually all season and after Saturday's start, he was 9-6 with a 5.11 era. Now with that being said, he still has a career 1.26 postseason era and is a World Series champion which is remarkable. He is also only 24 years old and still has an incredibly bright future ahead of him. Here is my quick take on this form The Times Union:

Mayfield is competing for the starting left guard job.
Braves right-hander Spencer Strider isn't ready to give the New York Mets their dues despite Atlanta losing four contests in a five-game series against its division rival. "A lot of weird hits. They seem to be having a lot of luck right now offensively. That's great. It's August. (We'll) see what things are like in October," Strider said after surrendering four earned runs on six hits in just 2 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss, according to Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The Braves could have a spot in their rotation open up soon. Ian Anderson was recently optioned to Gwinnett, and Jake Odorizzi didn’t look particularly promising in his first outing in a Braves uniform. Ideally, one of them will be the answer to the team’s final rotation spot, but Atlanta could turn to Kyle Muller if both of them continue to struggle. The 6’7″ left-hander returned to the mound on Saturday for the Stripers.
