Sport: Braves appoint Bryce Elder as 27th man for doubleheader

Braves outfielder Adam Duvall to have season-ending wrist surgery

  Braves outfielder Adam Duvall to have season-ending wrist surgery Duvall, 33, exited in the third inning of a Saturday game against the Los Angeles Angels with wrist soreness. On Sunday morning, the Braves placed Duvall on the 10-day injured list with what the team called a sprained wrist. The injury leaves the Braves thin in the outfield even after the team got Eddie Rosario back from an eye injury earlier in July. Rosario is batting .132 this season and Atlanta moved Guillermo Heredia and Michael Harris II into the starting lineup with Ronald Acuña Jr. on Sunday.

The Atlanta Braves announced this morning that right-hander Bryce Elder will serve as the 27th man for Saturday’s doubleheader. Elder will give the team another multi-inning option.

Elder made his major league debut back in early April when he was pressed into duty as the team’s fifth starter. He made four starts, but struggled but struggled with his command walking 14 batters in just 19 innings. His last appearance on the major league roster was April 30. Elder has spent the rest of the season at Gwinnett where he has made 15 starts while posting a 4.65 ERA and a 4.41 FIP in 91 innings.
