Atlanta Braves – The Braves placed Arodys Vizcaino on the IL with shoulder inflammation. AJ Minter is the likely choice to close in his absence.

Updated hierarchy: Minter | Sobotka | Biddle.

Atlanta Braves — Believed by many to be the team’s best reliever, AJ Minter has been activated from the injured list and was quickly thrust into a medium-leverage situation Thursday. With the Braves leading 9-0 in the ninth, Chad Sobotka allowed back-to-back dingers to make it 9-3. He then allowed another hit before he was yanked. Minter allowed that inherited runner to score after he walked two and yielded a fielder’s choice, but otherwise was able nail down the final two outs to finish things. Brian Snitker said before the game that Minter would pitch the ninth if the Braves were leading, and we expect both Minter and Arodys Vizcaino to get save chances in the immediate future.

Updated hierarchy: *Vizcaino | Minter | Sobotka.
* = closer-by-committee

The chaos in the closer universe is to the Monkey as Trump is to Rachel Madow. I'm sure, as soon as he sends out his daily email, he gets a million clicks.

Atlanta Braves — The Braves’ bullpen has looked pretty sketchy, especially Jonny Venters, who’s been getting work in the fifth and sixth. Arodys Vizcaino was effective in his first two outings, but the Braves would really like to get AJ Minter back on Thursday — possibly to compete for the ninth inning. 

Updated hierarchy: Vizcaino | Sobotka | Biddle.
