Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported Thursday that right-hander Allan Winans will be called up from Triple-A Gwinnett to make his MLB debut on Saturday against the Milwaukee Brewers. Winans is not on the 40-man roster, so a formal announcement from the Atlanta Braves is expected soon.

27-year-old Winans was originally drafted by the New York Mets in 2018 and was then taken by the Braves in the 2021 Rule 5 Draft. He has spent the entirety of 2023 in Gwinnett and has put together several impressive starts.

He owns a 2.81 ERA through 102.2 frames this year. He has fanned 89 to contribute to his 7-3 record.

Winans is penciled in to start game two in Milwaukee, behind Michael Soroka who will start the series opener.
