Braves: An update on Tyler Matzek

It appears that Tyler Matzek is inching closer to a return. The team announced today that his rehab assignment has been moved to AAA Gwinnett. Matzek was originally assigned to the Augusta Green Jackets, which is the Braves A-ball affiliate, and was expected to make his first appearance since hitting the IL yesterday. Unfortunately, because of weather, it never came to fruition, but he’s still been promoted to AAA Gwinnett. I’m not sure if you should read anything into this, but it seems he’s one step closer to returning to Atlanta.

Braves: Tyler Matzek begins his return to Atlanta

Just shortly after starting Eddie Rosario on a rehab assignment, the Braves have sent Tyler Matzek to Low A Augusta to get some innings in:. Matzek had a rough start to 2022, but with little-to-no offseason, I don’t think it’s fair to write him off completely. Atlanta badly needs him in the later innings, as Will Smith has been shaky at times. AJ Minter has been brilliant, but it never hurts to add more to the bullpen. Kirby Yates and Mike Soroka should be back soon along with Rosario, so hopefully the Braves just keep getting healthier as they chase down the Mets.

Tyler Matzek could also be close to a return

Matzek hasn’t pitched since mid-May, and like Rosario, he wasn’t the same guy this year as he was last year. It feels like both guys came into the season with issues, and hopefully, they return and become substantial contributors again. With Mike Soroka also nearing a return, the Braves could be close to full strength very soon.

Braves' Tyler Matzek: Playing catch

Matzek (shoulder inflammation) has started playing catch, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. He was shut down from throwing a couple weeks ago, and it seems like he is starting to ramp back up. Matzek is without a timetable to return.

Could Jackson Stephens be Atlanta’s next Tyler Matzek?

Over the years, Braves GM Alex Anthopoulos has made multiple under-the-radar signings that have bailed the team out in more ways than one. Most notably, Tyler Matzek absolutely saved the Braves against the Dodgers in the 2021 NLCS, striking out the side in a bases loaded jam. This year, Anthopoulos may have found another key bullpen piece for cheap:

Braves place Tyler Matzek on the IL and announce Tuesday’s starter

The Braves lost again on Monday night in brutal fashion, falling to the Brewers 1-0. Atlanta could only muster two hits and struck out 16 times, but they still had a chance to win thanks to a gem put together by Ian Anderson and Spencer Strider. The only run the Brewers were able to push across the plate came in the sixth inning on a pass ball with two outs.
