Angels' Touki Toussaint: Slated to start Saturday

Toussaint is expected to start Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mariners, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. Toussaint made his debut for the Angels last weekend and allowed two runs across four innings of long relief, and he'll make a spot start in Saturday's twin bill. Another decent showing could keep the 26-year-old in the mix for future starts after the departure of Noah Syndergaard at the trade deadline.

Angels' Touki Toussaint: Called up Saturday

Toussaint was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday. Toussaint was traded from Atlanta to the Angels in early July and posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in eight innings over three starts in Salt Lake. Although the right-hander has served mainly as a starter over the last two years, he should be a multi-inning relief option in the Angels' bullpen.

Braves: Touki Toussaint lands with the Angels

It probably wasn’t the 4th of July weekend Touki Toussaint was hoping for, as he was designated for assignment on Saturday, ending his tenure as a Brave. The once highly-touted prospect made his Atlanta debut back in 2018 and flashed his potential several times over four seasons with the team, but like most young arms, consistency — especially with his command — prevented him from sustained success. And after beginning this season abysmally with Gwinnett, the Braves decided to move on from him to make room on the 40-man roster.

Braves: The future of Touki Toussaint is in serious question

Over the years, the Braves have focused on drafting and acquiring young pitchers. A big reason for that is their incredible success in developing arms through their minor league system. Spencer Strider is just the latest example. However, another reason is that for every one arm that finds success at the major-league level, there are a couple that fizzle out and never make the impact that’s expected of them. Touki Toussaint is sadly beginning to look like he belongs in the latter category.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Moves up to majors

Atlanta recalled Toussaint from Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday. Toussaint and Dylan Lee will both join Atlanta in Los Angeles for the second game of the team's series with the Dodgers, giving the bullpen a fresh pair of arms after starter Huascar Ynoa lasted just 3.2 innings in Monday's 7-4 loss. Ynoa was demoted to Gwinnett in a corresponding move, but Toussaint isn't expected to get a look in the rotation in his place. Instead, Atlanta will likely condense from a six-man rotation to a five-man setup, with Kyle Wright and Bryce Elder occupying the back-end spots.

Braves: Add Touki Toussaint to the long list of names that could help the rotation

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Touki Toussaint has a filthy repertoire. The now 25-year-old made his debut with the Braves back in 2018 and has appeared in each of the last four seasons for stints at a time. At his best, Toussaint has looked like a guy who could complement Max Fried at the top of the rotation, but as is the case with so many ultra talented young prospects, consistency with control has plagued him.
