Just say it! The Braves have had a long season. Ok, The Braves have had a long season. There’s only a couple people left on the team from opening day. Many have been shipped to and from their Triple A team, the Gwinnett Braves, several times. The Braves also ended up making ANOTHER trade late July shedding their only left handed starter, Alex Wood. They brought in Cuban star Hector Olivera. Hector has been at Gwinnett ever since the trade as he’s been rehabbing from a June hamstring injury. Most pundits thought he would be on the Brave by now but the team has been slow to bring him up here. With not much to lose, look for Mr Olivera to join the team next week at the latest. We will then hopefully see some of what the Braves and most scouts think is a 20 home run 80 RBI guy.
The Braves tried using Christian Bethancourt as their main catcher early this year, but by May was also back in Gwinnett. He wasn’t hitting and his lauded defense just wasn’t there. Christian worked hard all summer and he hit .325 and was brought up to the big league team a couple days ago. This is his time to shine if he wants to show the team that he is the man or they will be forced to look for someone else in the off season.
Go see the team this last month of the season and see some of what the future holds.
