    Headshot for AJ Smith-Shawver

    The Braves announced this morning that they’ve optioned right-hander AJ Smith-Shawver to Triple-A Gwinnett, thus ending his bid for a spot in the team’s Opening Day rotation. He’ll begin the season in the upper minors and serve as one of the team’s first lines of defense should an injury occur on the starting staff. It’s…

  • Braves Option AJ Smith-Shawver To Triple-A

    Headshot for AJ Smith-Shawver

    The Atlanta Braves optioned right-hander AJ Smith-Shawver to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday and reassigned catcher Sebastian Rivero to minor-league camp as well. The Braves now have 39 players in camp. Smith-Shawver isn't going to open the 2024 regular season in Atlanta's bullpen, but there's a good chance he'll be needed at some point this year. The 21-year-old struck out 11 hitters and walked only two in 7 2/3 Grapefruit League innings, but he also had an 8.22 ERA, which sealed his fate to be sent to Triple-A. The 6-foot-3 hurler has impressive stuff and has shown dominance in the minors, so he's a pitcher to watch in mixed leagues once you start jumping on the waiver wire if he is recalled and enters Atlanta's starting rotation.

  • AJ Smith-Shawver Feeling It This Spring

    Headshot for AJ Smith-Shawver

    Atlanta Braves right-hander AJ Smith-Shawver is enjoying himself this spring after a fine outing on Monday versus the Minnesota Twins. The youngster tossed 2 2/3 innings of scoreless ball to go along with five strikeouts against just one walk. He allowed just one hit in the outing as part of the Braves' 4-3 loss to the Twins. The 21-year-old made six appearances and five starts with the Braves in the 2023 season, working to a 4.26 ERA in that time. While he struck out just 19% of the hitters he faced in the majors, he also punched out a hefty 27.5% of the hitters he faced in 10 starts at the Triple-A level where he posted a 4.17 ERA. Smith-Shawver is in a battle for a rotation spot with the Braves this spring but his immediate-term fantasy value isn't terribly attractive in redraft leagues.
