The Braves have replaced injured reliever Chris Martin, who exited the game on Thursday with a strained oblique, with Julio Teheran.
Julio Teheran will replace Chris Martin (strained oblique) on the Braves' NLDS roster. Max Fried will now be a top bullpen option during the next couple games and Teheran would likely start Game 4.— Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) October 4, 2019
Losing Martin for the eighth inning was costly in Game 1, and now the Braves will be forced to alter their rotation plans as Max Fried will reportedly move to the bullpen for the remainder of the NLDS. Fried was excellent in one inning of work on Thursday, and will now be a top relief option as Julio Teheran will likely draw the start in Game 4, according to Mark Bowman.
