Holy catbirds! How about this for a rumor in the hot MLB rumors section. Anyone remember Ben Sheets? I remember how he used to hyped up as an awesome fantasy pitcher and would A) get hurt and/or B) be incredibly inconsistent. Well, it looks like the Atlanta Braves might have his studliness very soon as he’ll make a AA start for the Braves with the possibility of being in the majors by August 1.
Yay! I’m sure Braves fans are JACKED. You have a guy like Julio Teheran who everyone is hyping up all the time- still pitching in the minors. The Braves are supposedly in on every starting pitcher on the market right now, and they’re going to go with Ben Sheets who hasn’t pitched in 2-3 years? It’s been so long- I don’t even want to look up his last start. Flexor tendon surgery, tommy john surgery- whatever at this point.
The Braves can’t possibly think Ben Sheets is their savior right? I mean come on- the guy hasn’t pitched in forever and the Braves are in the middle of a pennant race. I find it insane if they don’t make a move and rely on Sheets for the stretch run.
Well- I guess that’s what you get when you don’t truly believe in Julio Teheran or Randall Delgado.
I can honestly say I’m really stunned at the news. Ben Sheets for pick up! Fantasy owners everywhere- beware!
