Wisler could benefit from a stint in the bullpen. Decreased exposure would allow him to focus on correcting his problems before returning to the rotation.

I thought it might be especially important since they will only have 1 month (September) to evaluate him at the MLB level before spring training of next year.

I think there must be something that isn't public knowledge that has led him to being on the ****-list with the organization.

Thirty-seven games should be enough to see if Bethancourt has progressed after a stint with Gwinnett.

He probably still can't take a walk but hopefully he can make contact more often. He can't get much worse than his earlier stint in Atlanta.

Who's going to be the 5th starter if Wisler moves to the bullpen??? Unfortunately it's trial by fire for Wisler, Folty, Man Ban, and Perez this season.

Default Game #126 (2015-08-25, 19:10): Rockies 5, Braves 1

The Braves fell to the Rockies 5-1. Nick Markakis batted in the Braves' only run scored by Andrelton Simmons.

Adonis Garcia committed three fielding errors in the game. Playing that bad defensively should not go unnoticed.

Olivera will be up soon and take over the starting 3B duties. We are the 6th worst team in baseball right now. We're actually making some of the pre-season predictions of this team seem positive LOL.

Garcia would be useful as a pinch hitter. His defensive play is questionable, but his offensive play can bat in runs and produce home runs.
