Braves: Sean Newcomb also added to the active roster

Sean Newcomb was also added to the active roster after Grant Dayton was placed on the IL with thigh inflammation.

Braves reinstate Sean Newcomb, recall Edgar Santana. Option Bryse Wilson, and Johan Camargo

The Braves have announced a flurry of movements highlighted by activating Sean Newcomb from the IL.

Braves place Ender Inciarte, Sean Newcomb on IL

The Braves made several roster moves before Saturday’s game in Chicago, including placing outfielder Ender Inciarte and left-hander Sean Newcomb on the injured list. It was an expected move for Inciarte, who suffered a left hamstring strain during the Braves’ 5-2 win over the Cubs on Friday. It was the second time the Braves lost their starting center fielder this week after Cristian Pache suffered left-groin tightness that put him on the IL.

Is Sean Newcomb closer material?

You could easily make the case that, through the first 13 games of the 2021 campaign, no pitcher in the Braves bullpen has been as tough to hit as 27-year-old lefty Sean Newcomb. Through his first 4 ⅓ innings, Newk sports a cool 2.08 ERA to go along with a bound-to-return-to-normal but still crazy 22.8 strikeouts per nine as Atlanta’s 6th- and 7th-inning specialist. Admittedly, it is a small sample size, just 19 PA, but opposing batters have done very little versus Newcomb, and entering Friday’s series opener with the Cubs, the big lefty paces the Braves bullpen with just a .133 AVG allowed.
