Atlanta Braves Bullpen Faltering. Solutions? Kohn/Cornely promoted

3 of 7

What’s the biggest difference for Atlanta Braves bullpen?

First and foremost, the bullpen wasn’t very good to begin with as the depth was seriously challenged by the loss of Craig Kimbrel, David Carpenter, Jordan Walden, David Hale, and Anthony Varvaro via trades, and Shae Simmons via Tommy John surgery. Add on to that the losses of cheaters Arodys Vizcaino and Andrew McKirahan and the Braves are in a pickle…and that’s not a very good dill. Pickle puns. Seriously?

Arguably, the Braves traded away and/or lost to injury every effective reliever from 2014.  Wowsers!
