The Atlanta Braves placed left-hander Dylan Lee on the 15-day injured list ahead of Tuesday’s matchup with the Philadelphia Phillies. The move was made effective on September 11 after Lee experienced shoulder inflammation.
The #Braves have placed LHP Dylan Lee on the 15-day injured list with left shoulder inflammation, effective September 11, and voided his option to Triple-A Gwinnett following Game 1 of yesterday’s doubleheader.— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) September 12, 2023
The southpaw appeared in game one of Monday’s doubleheader and was tagged with two runs in 0.1 innings. He was optioned to Gwinnett after that performance, but the most recent move to the injured list will retract that option.
With this move, his postseason availability is in question, so the Braves will likely turn to other bullpen arms.
