    Starting Pitching Crisis!!!

    Folty scratched with elbow soreness. Gausman and Gohara have not pitched due to shoulder issues. Soroka of course we know about.

    Starting pitching surplus anyone?

    This would be nearly unprecedented levels of bad luck hitting all at once if the Braves lose that much pitching in the first week of ST.

    Gausman had a bad walk ratio for us -CrazyTrain 11/20/2018

    on the bright side guys like Fried, Touki, Wilson and Wright would have an opportunity

    Wren knows a thing or two about young pitching and bad luck in a relative short amount of time.

    Damn. This is insane. I wonder if it'll prompt a move or a guy like Keuchel.

    Damn. We could be in for a lot of growing pains with the young guys if Folty goes down and Gausman is having problems. I pray it’s all just soreness from a long winter.

    If any team can weather this ...it’s us. We almost have three full rotations at our disposal.

    Having your 3 best pitchers struggling with shoulder/elbow discomfort seems a bit of an inauspicious start to the season.

    We were pretty lucky health wise last year. Even the Acuña injury could have been so much worse.

    It might be time to call Gio's agent.

    Actually it remains to be seen if any of these pitchers are going to miss the start of the season. Early reports are that what they are dealing with is minor.

    Last year the Braves were very lucky injury wise. I get the feeling that's going to even out this year.

    I'll highlight the key word in my quote:

    Well, that's a little bit of revisionist history, at least as far as the rotation goes.

    Remember Gohara was supposed to be in the rotation. How many starts did he make. Then his replacement (Anibal) went down for a while with an injury.

    McCarthy is another guy who went down.

    Teheran had a stint on the DL. Fried had issues with blisters that cost him starts. Soroka got injured.

    Maybe in terms of position players, pitching we were unlucky but yes that usually evens out over time.
