Bullpen coach Marty Reed will fill in as pitching coach. Reed, who joined manager Brian Snitker’s staff in May 2016, served as Triple-A Gwinnett’s pitching coach for over five seasons after coaching Double-A Mississippi arms for two campaigns.
As part of the Braves’ temporary reshuffling, Eddie Perez will be in uniform as bullpen coach. Perez has coached under managers Bobby Cox, Fredi Gonzalez and Brian Snitker during his lengthy tenure. He was dismissed as hitting coach in 2017, but remained with the organization as a roving instructor.
