Braves News: Series loss, Kenley Jansen returns, more

A mixed bag of news in the Braves’ realm

MLB: San Francisco Giants at Atlanta Braves Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Braves did not get the desired results from their big three game series against the Mets, but remain only 2.5 games behind them for the division, with half of the season left to be played. The good news is that Austin Riley is scorching hot and Matt Olson may be finding his power stroke. The other good news is the return of elite closer Kenley Jansen, who had a brief IL stint after an irregular heartbeat. The Braves close out the first half with a four game road series against the lowly Nationals.
