“I know there’s nobody who feels worse than him right now,” Snitker said.
Once again, the Braves are tasked with navigating a pitching loss. They have options: Left-hander Tucker Davidson was promoted Monday and will start Tuesday against the Mets. Bryse Wilson and Kyle Wright remain depth for situations like this. Wilson is coming off a strong start against the Blue Jays, and while he’s in Triple-A, should receive his opportunities in the majors.
“It’s going to be guys from within our system,” Snitker said. “And we’ll just see how we get there.”
Reliever Edgar Santana was recalled to fill the vacated roster spot. The Braves opened a three-game series Monday against the first-place Mets.
