Well the Braves had a game on Saturday and it was fun to watch until the bottom of the ninth happened, which was absolutely excruciating to watch, culminating in a five pitch walk-off walk loss. Outside of that, Ronald Acuna was absent from the lineup, but Snitker described it as just a standard rest day as he continues to not be 100%. Jackson Stephens was placed on the concussion IL, but appears to be about as healthy as could be hoped for after being hit in the head with a line drive, which is great news.

A rough Charlie Morton outing and a Kenley Jansen blowup sunk the otherwise solid Braves.

The Braves placed Jackson Stephens on the 7-day concussion IL, but he seems to be mostly healthy, having what was described as a “mild” concussion and nothing more after being hit in the head with a line drive.

42 year old Rich Hill pitched and did some cool stuff for the Red Sox, which is pretty cool.

Aroldis Chapman was placed on the IL with a leg infection related to a tattoo. Here is an update on that and other injuries around the league.
