Braves Replace Yonny Chirinos with Allan Winans for Mets Game After Placing Pitcher on 15-Day Injured List

The Atlanta Braves have made a roster change for their upcoming game against the New York Mets. Right-handed pitcher Yonny Chirinos has been placed on the 15-day injured list due to elbow inflammation. This move opened up a spot for Allan Winans, a right-hander who was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett to start the game.

Chirinos has been struggling since being claimed off waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays a month ago. In his five starts for the Braves, he has given up 23 earned runs, 33 hits, and five home runs in just 22 1/3 innings. He has failed to pitch past the fifth inning in any of his outings. Overall, Chirinos has a 5.40 ERA in 20 appearances this season.

Allan Winans, on the other hand, is looking to make his mark on the Atlanta rotation. After pitching seven scoreless innings against the Mets in his first big league win, he now has another opportunity to solidify his spot as the fifth starter for the Braves. Winans has been performing well at the Triple-A level with an 8-3 record and a 2.79 ERA in 20 appearances.

The Braves have had their fair share of pitching struggles this season, with injuries to Max Fried and Kyle Wright leaving two spots in the rotation to be filled. Fried’s return has provided some stability, and Winans will now aim to contribute to the team’s success.

It remains to be seen if Wright will be able to return before the end of the regular season, as he has been dealing with a shoulder injury. The Braves cannot rely on him for a significant contribution given his long layoff.

Overall, the Braves are hoping that Allan Winans can continue his strong performance and provide stability in the rotation as they push for a playoff spot.
