Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman earned National League Player of the Week honors after hitting .500 (11-for-22) with two home runs and seven RBIs in six games last week.


9/25/2016 | Braves mourn Fernandez at Marlins Park

Approximately five minutes before arriving at Marlins Park on Sunday morning, Freddie Freeman, Tyler Flowers and a group of other Braves on the team bus were suddenly overwhelmed with sadness and bewilderment as they learned Marlins ace Jose Fernandez died a few hours earlier in a boating accident.


9/25/2016 | Braves, Phils square off to determine season series

Though their late-season surge has not positioned them to potentially avoid finishing last in the National League East, the Braves will enter this week's three-game series against the Phillies with a chance to exit this season with a winning record against three of their division opponents.


9/24/2016 | Teheran-Conley matchup concludes series

Though he won't be matching up against Jose Fernandez as originally scheduled, Braves right-hander Julio Teheran will still have a little extra motivation when he opposes Adam Conley and the Marlins at 1:10 p.m. ET on Sunday at Marlins Park.


9/24/2016 | Simmons dealing with right forearm discomfort

A little more than three weeks after returning to the big leagues for the first time in more than two years, Braves right-handed reliever Shae Simmons is dealing with yet another arm ailment.


9/23/2016 | Streaking Braves, Freeman avoid 100 losses

Freddie Freeman extended the longest active hitting streak in the Majors and became just the second player in Atlanta history to record an 80th extra-base hit in one season. But much of the satisfaction Freeman felt after Friday night's 3-2 win over the Marlins stemmed from the fight he and his Braves teammates have shown, which has enabled them to avoid what once seemed like an inevitable 100-loss season.


9/23/2016 | Kemp ejected in third for arguing strike call

Matt Kemp's birthday did not go exactly as he had envisioned. The Braves' left fielder was ejected during the third inning of Friday's 3-2 win over the Marlins after he expressed displeasure toward a strike called against Nick Markakis.


9/23/2016 | Marlins' WC hopes hinge on play vs. NL East

If the Marlins don't get on a roll to gain a National League Wild Card spot, they will finish this season with the realization that their postseason bid was influenced by a losing record produced against their own division.


9/23/2016 | Barring setback, Folty could start Tuesday

As Mike Foltynewicz's bruised left calf has steadily improved and allowed him to regain normal mobility, he has positioned himself to possibly make two more starts for the Braves before the end of this season.


9/23/2016 | Garcia's late RBI hurts Marlins' WC hopes

All season, the Braves have presented problems to Miami. On Friday night, Adonis Garcia's two-out RBI single in the ninth inning lifted Atlanta to a 3-2 comeback win and pushed the Marlins closer to National League Wild Card elimination.


9/23/2016 | Before Inciarte's catch, there was Nixon's

The Catch happened during July 1992, when Otis Nixon climbed the outfield wall at Atlanta-Fulton County Coliseum for the Braves to do more than just snatch away a home run from the Pirates' Andy Van Slyke to keep a long winning streak alive. Nixon created the gold standard for superlative catches along these lines. Which brings us to the unfathomable thing that Ender Inciarte did Wednesday night at Citi Field in New York against the Mets.


9/23/2016 | Kemp's 3rd multi-HR game of year helps Braves surge

It appears the rumors about the demise of Matt Kemp's career were a bit premature. After being given away in exchange for cost savings for the Padres on July 30, the former Most Valuable Player Award candidate is providing the Braves more reason to believe they soundly gambled on his future.


9/22/2016 | Cashner hoping to best Wisler, surging Braves

When the Marlins acquired Andrew Cashner from the Padres on July 29, they hoped he would strengthen their starting rotation and help them make a strong push toward the postseason. But the right-hander's inconsistencies have not boosted Miami's playoff hopes. Cashner will be bidding to earn just his second win as a Marlin when he opposes Matt Wisler and the surging Braves on Friday night in Miami.


9/22/2016 | Kemp's 2 HRs lead win vs. WC-seeking Fish

he Braves continue to play for more than pride. The way they've heated up, they're spoiling the postseason plans for a couple of National League East rivals. Matt Kemp belted two home runs and Josh Collmenter gave up two runs in seven innings on Thursday night in Atlanta's 6-3 win over Miami at Marlins Park.


9/22/2016 | Freeman's 42-game on-base streak passes Chipper

Freddie Freeman now has the distinction of doing something his good friend Chipper Jones never did during his legendary career. But after extending his on-base streak to 42 games in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Marlins, the Braves first baseman laughed when he was asked if he now has bragging rights.


9/22/2016 | Snitker: Grab may make Inciarte Gold Glove favorite

As Atlanta's Ender Inciarte and Cincinnati's Billy Hamilton have spent the past couple of months producing an impressive list of defensive gems, they have become two obvious frontrunners among National League center fielders for a Gold Glove Award.


9/22/2016 | Statcast of the Day: Inciarte leaves all in awe

According to Statcast™, Yoenis Cespedes hit the final out of Wednesday's 4-3 Braves win over the Mets with an exit velocity of 101.7 mph and a launch angle of 28 degrees. Such batted balls are a hit 84 percent of the time and a home run 72 percent of the time. Ender Inciarte made sure this one was neither.


9/21/2016 | Game Ender! Walk-off dazzler denies Mets

Yoenis Cespedes nearly won Wednesday night's game for the Mets on a walk-off, three-run homer in the ninth, but center fielder Ender Inciarte robbed him with a leaping catch at the wall. The resulting 4-3 win was the sixth in a row for the Braves at Citi Field and their fifth straight overall.


9/21/2016 | Freeman ties Chipper with 41-game on-base streak

Freddie Freeman's single off in the fourth inning of Wednesday night's Braves game at Citi Field gave the first baseman a 41-game on-base streak, equaling the longest of Chipper Jones' long Atlanta career.


9/21/2016 | Ramirez drops appeal, begins serving suspension

Braves right-hander Jose Ramirez has dropped his appeal of a three-game suspension for throwing a pitch over Jose Fernandez's head last week at Turner Field.


9/21/2016 | With no guarantees, Snitker hopes to keep post

With the days winding down on a Braves season that is finishing much better than it began, interim manager Brian Snitker said on Wednesday that he hopes to get a chance to continue in the job.


9/21/2016 | Marlins know they can't take Braves lightly

The Braves have proven to be a dangerous opponent this month, and the Marlins can't be surprised. They've had trouble with the NL East's last-place team all season. The two clubs will meet again this weekend in Miami, with the Marlins hoping to continue their late run at a Wild Card spot in a four-game series that begins with a 7:10 p.m. ET contest on Thursday at Marlins Park.


9/20/2016 | Julio's Citi: Teheran extends mastery of Mets

It can't be the mound and it can't be the ballpark, Julio Teheran said, because last season he pitched a game at Citi Field and it didn't go at all well. This year? Different story. This year, the Braves' right-hander has made two starts at the Mets' home, and he was outstanding both times.


9/20/2016 | Snitker: Swanson getting jump-start on '17

A little more than six months from now, the Braves will open the 2017 season back at Citi Field. It would hardly be a surprise if Noah Syndergaard is the Mets' starter that day. It would hardly be a surprise if Dansby Swanson is the Braves' shortstop. And it would hardly be a surprise if Swanson doesn't look at all intimidated when he comes to the plate.


9/20/2016 | Running on empty, Freeman digs deep for 4 hits

There will be stories for Freddie Freeman to tell his son someday. Yeah, kid, you cried so much you kept dad up all night. And I still got on a plane, showed up at Citi Field and got four hits. "Hopefully, I have some other cool games I can tell him about," Freeman said late Monday night, enjoying the Braves' 7-3 win over the Mets but realizing that what he really needed was a good night's sleep. Or maybe he didn't need it.
