  Wright, d'Arnaud lead Braves to sweep Marlins, reach NLCS HOUSTON (AP) Not since the days of John Smoltz, Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine had the Atlanta Braves pitched like this in the playoffs. And even those future Hall of Famers didn't throw the way these Braves have this postseason.''What those guys did on the mound is almost mind-blowing,'' manager Brian Snitker said.Rookie Kyle Wright dazzled for six innings in his postseason debut, and the Braves rode their superb pitching to beat the Miami Marlins 7-0 Thursday for a three-game sweep and their first trip to the NL Championship Series since 2001.Wright (1-0) was sharp despite not pitching since Sept.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Monday that Sanchez will remain in Miami's rotation this week, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Miami is due to get three Opening Day rotation members in Sandy Alcantara, Caleb Smith and Jose Urena back from the COVID-19 injured list in the near future, but the

The Marlins turned in a strong 2020 campaign, raising expectations for the immediate future. To compete over a 162-game season and to deliver a multiyear window of contention, the organization will need several promising young starters to settle in as top-quality rotation pieces.

Compiling a 2021 rotation will be the ultimate responsibility of a new baseball operations leader, but now-entrenched skipper Don Mattingly will likely have a significant say in the matter. Mattingly discussed the outlook for the pitching staff recently, as Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald covers.

Jonathan Mattingly spoke for the first time about the death of Breonna Taylor. In an exclusive interview with ABC News and Louisville's Courier Journal, Mattingly, a 20-year veteran of the Louisville Metro Police Department, said one of the biggest things he would have done differently was to storm Taylor's residence without giving her time to answer what he claims were multiple knocks on her door accompanied by repeated announcements of "Police, search warrant!"

Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly praises the team's young players for coming up with big plays in their spring training win over the Washington Nationals

After manager Don Mattingly ’s Marlins and the Cincinnati Reds clinched postseason spots , two NL playoff slots MIAMI (AP) — Don Mattingly returns this weekend to Yankee Stadium, where his best years as a player always ended when the regular season did.

While it stands to reason that high-profile youngster Sixto Sanchez will occupy a major role, Mattingly made clear that the righty will have to earn a rotation spot. Even though Sanchez “showed what he’s capable of,” Mattingly says there’s also “some downside to that and some areas where he needs to grow.”

Sanchez’s rookie showing was impressive by most any measure. Over 39 frames, he limited the long ball and racked up a 58.0 percent groundball rate to support a sturdy 3.46 ERA. The 22-year-old averaged 99 mph with his four-seam heater.

Despite that effort, Mattingly says Sanchez will enter camp in the same boat as fellow newcomer Trevor Rogers, who posted eye-popping strikeout numbers but carried a 6.11 ERA. Both hurlers will need to “continue to develop,” Mattingly said.

So, who is assured of a rotation job, presuming good health? Mattingly explains that he’s penciling in Sandy Alcantara, Pablo Lopez, and Elieser Hernandez at this early point.

It’d be hard to argue with that assessment. Hernandez has the thinnest track record of the trio, but it’s hard not to be impressed by his compilation of 11.9 K/9 against just 1.8 BB/9 in a six-start run. Mattingly expressed confidence in Hernandez’s health after his season was cut short by a lat injury.

The Fish could have the makings of a strong unit, but plenty of variables remain. Full health can’t be presumed, so there’ll be a need for more arms even if Sanchez ultimately takes a rotation slot. Mattingly also tabbed Nick Neidert and Jose Urena as possibilities, but the former has yet to make a MLB start and the latter seems to be a potential non-tender candidate.

Braves interested in Adam Wainwright

  Braves interested in Adam Wainwright The type of production Wainwright delivered in 2020 would be welcome for the Braves, whose rotation dealt with its share of adversity. Mike Soroka and Cole Hamels, whom they were counting on to play major roles, each missed almost the entire season because of injuries; Mike Foltynewicz ended up on the outs; and several other options logged awful numbers over multiple starts.The good news for the Braves is that their rotation doesn’t appear a need a ton of help. While Hamels is a free agent, Soroka is coming back to join Max Fried and Ian Anderson atop the Braves’ staff.

Jonathan Mattingly was one of three cops who descended on Taylor's apartment in Louisville, Kentucky, in March with a no-knock warrant to search her place. ‘The incident would still happen but it would have been shown on camera. This wouldn’t be an issue - this wouldn’t be a case.
