So much for the Tom Glavine or John Smoltz school of development. Matt Wisler is back in Triple-A Gwinnett, taking the hard knocks of a twenty-something pitching prospect all over again, while the rest of the Braves go on with their rebuild.
But here’s the catch: Wisler isn’t buying any theories that suggest he has not received a chance to take his lumps in the big leagues like the generation before him.
“No, I got my chances,” Wisler said Monday here before Gwinnett opened a three-game series with the Charlotte Knights. “I had a lot of chances, I didn’t take advantage of them. … I went through some last year. They gave me an opportunity to bounce back in September. This year … June was iffy and they gave me four or five chances in July to fix it and I couldn’t.”
