  • Braves' Darius Vines: Sent back to Gwinnett

    Atlanta optioned Vines to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Vines was recalled from Triple-A on Monday to give Atlanta additional bullpen depth, and he will now head back to the minors after allowing six earned runs in three innings during Friday's loss to the Pirates. The 26-year-old righty owns a 7.82 ERA through 12.2 big-league innings but could still provide depth for the big-league staff later in the year.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Back in big leagues

    Atlanta recalled Vines from Triple-A Gwinnett after Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against San Diego.

    The right-hander was sent down in April after he gave up five runs over 9.2 frames in two starts for Atlanta, and he'll rejoin the big club ahead of Game 2 of Monday's twin bill. Vines will immediately be available out of the bullpen, but he could start Thursday against the Cubs if he's not called upon in the next couple days.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Optioned after Sunday's start

    Vines (0-1) was the pitcher of record in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Rangers, allowing four runs on seven hits while striking out two over five innings. He was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett following the game, according to David O'Brien of The Athletic.

    Making his second start for Atlanta, Vines cruised through the first three innings before running into trouble in the fourth. Evan Carter led off the frame with a solo shot to right center before Andrew Knizner put the Rangers in front with a three-run blast. Outside of the fourth inning, Vines held his own against a dangerous lineup, but he'll head back to Gwinnett nonetheless to gain further seasoning. Atlanta will call up Bryce Elder from Gwinnett to take replace Vines on the 26-man active roster ahead of Monday's series opener versus the Marlins.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Nabs second start

    Vines is slated to start Sunday's game against the Rangers at Truist Park, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    As expected, Vines will wind up getting at least one more turn through the rotation while filling in for Spencer Strider (elbow), who underwent season-ending surgery last week. In his 2024 MLB debut Monday, Vines was dealt a no-decision in Atlanta's 6-1 win over Houston after striking out four over 4.2 innings while allowing one run on four hits and three walks. He was lifted after 80 pitches Monday, but he could have that workload restriction loosened a bit if he's more efficient this weekend in a matchup with the reigning World Series champions. Even though Strider is out of the picture for 2024, Atlanta has plenty of appealing young arms in the upper levels of the minors, so Vines will need to continue to pitch well in his subsequent starts to ensure he sticks in the rotation on a more permanent basis.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Solid in short outing

    Vines allowed one run on four hits and three walks over 4.2 innings in a no-decision Monday. He struck out four in the win over Houston.

    Vines was tagged with a run in the first inning but was able to settle in and put together a decent performance. He threw 46 of 80 pitches for strikes, including nine whiffs. It was Vines' first MLB appearance since Sep. 27 of last season. The 25-year-old likely pitched well enough to earn another turn in the rotation, but Atlanta's long-term plan to replace Spencer Strider (elbow) remains unclear for now.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Set to start Monday

    Vines will start Monday's game against the Astros, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    The 25-year-old was called up by Atlanta on Friday but wasn't needed out of the bullpen in Miami this weekend, so he's now in line to fill the rotation spot that was opened when Spencer Strider (elbow) was placed on the 15-day injured list. Vines posted a 3.98 ERA over 20.1 frames in his first taste of the majors last season, and he got off to a solid start at Triple-A Gwinnett in 2024 with a 3.75 ERA and 11:3 K:BB in two outings.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Called up Friday

    Atlanta recalled Vines from Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

    The right-hander made his last start for Gwinnett on April 4 and should immediately be available out of the bullpen for Atlanta. However, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com, Vines could be an option to start Tuesday against the Astros, depending on his usage over the next few days. The 25-year-old Vines made his MLB debut last season and had a 3.98 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 14:7 K:BB across 20.1 innings.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Cut from major-league camp

    Vines was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett by Atlanta on Monday.

    Vines has tossed five scoreless innings this spring, which gives you an idea what his odds of earning a roster spot were coming into camp. He'll be part of Gwinnett's rotation and should make some starts for Atlanta in 2024.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Sent back to minors

    Vines was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

    The move comes one day after Vines held the Cubs to two runs over six innings in a no-decision Wednesday. He's being sent out in favor of AJ Smith-Shawver, who is starting Thursday's contest. Vines has made a nice first impression in the big leagues in 2023, holding a 3.98 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 14:7 K:BB over 20.1 frames.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Gets starting nod Wednesday

    Vines is listed as Atlanta's probable starter pitcher for Wednesday's home game against the Cubs.

    Atlanta's rotation depth has been tested in the final week of the season with Max Fried (finger) and Charlie Morton (finger) recently landing on the injured list and with Kyle Wright getting moved to the bullpen, so Vines will get the chance to make his second career big-league start. Since limiting the Rockies to two runs over six innings in his MLB debut Aug. 30, Vines has made his last three appearances with Atlanta as a reliever, pitching to a 5.40 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 4:4 K:BB over 8.1 innings. Though his long-term outlook is promising, Vines may not make for an appealing streaming option Wednesday, given that his innings could be managed carefully along with the fact that he'll be facing off against a Cubs squad that is still looking to clinch a wild-card spot.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Recalled from Triple-A

    Vines was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

    Vines is replacing Max Fried (blister) on the roster and could get a start over the final week-plus, although the rookie right-hander is more likely to be used for length in the bullpen. Vines holds a 3.27 ERA and 8:2 K:BB over 11 innings in three appearances (one start) for Atlanta this season, and per Jonathan Mayo and Sam Dykstra of MLB.com, he'll head straight to the Arizona Fall League right after the end of Atlanta's regular season.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Returns to Triple-A

    Vines was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

    Vines was called up by Atlanta on Wednesday and will head back to the minors after he delivered three solid frames of long relief Saturday against Pittsburgh. The 25-year-old has pitched well in his three big-league appearances this season with a 3.27 ERA and 0.91 WHIP over 11 innings, so he could receive another look during the closing weeks of the season.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Back in big leagues

    Vines was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

    Vines will join Atlanta's bullpen for now, but he's a candidate to draw a start this weekend against the Pirates as a replacement for Michael Soroka (forearm), who was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday. The rookie right-hander allowed two runs over six innings in a win over the Rockies in his major-league debut last week before being optioned back to Triple-A.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Returns to Triple-A

    Atlanta optioned Vines to Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.

    Though the young right-hander cruised to a win while striking out five over six innings of two-run ball in his big-league debut this past Wednesday in Colorado, he was sent back to Gwinnett to make room on the roster for a fresh relief arm in right-hander Ben Heller, who was called up from Triple-A in a corresponding move. Per Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta is likely to call up either of Michael Soroka or Dylan Dodd from Triple-A when the team breaks a new No. 5 starter into the rotation Tuesday versus the Cardinals. Vines will head back to the minors for now but should be an option to rejoin the big club later in September, either as a multi-inning reliever or starter.

  • Braves' Darius Vines: Wins big-league debut in Colorado

    Vines (1-0) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five over six innings to earn the win in Wednesday's 7-3 victory over the Rockies.

    Making his major-league debut at Coors Field, Vines had few issues with the Rockies' lineup. The runs against him came on an Ezequiel Tovar single and a Hunter Goodman sacrifice fly. Vines had a 2.86 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 25:11 K:BB over 28.1 innings with Triple-A Gwinnett after recovering from a shoulder injury, so his success isn't all that surprising. The rookie right-hander could have a chance to stick in Atlanta's rotation beyond Wednesday. If he does, he could pitch at home versus the Cardinals next week, though Atlanta may use Monday's off day to push him to the back a few days instead.
