Touki Toussaint will start Wednesday for #Braves. Drew Smyly stays in bullpen for now, available tomorrow.
Chip just really said, “In a game of this importance, you have to manage it like a playoff game” as Drew Smyly is on the mound in the eighth inning of a one-run game with Edgar Santana warming up.
Nobody in in Braves country has a Smyly face right now
Oh hey, Drew Smyly still sucks in relief.
Drew Smyly isn't used to pitching this time of night. He's usually done by 8:45
Using Drew Smyly in a one run game in the 8th should’ve never been an option. #Braves
Drew Smyly threw 16 pitches in that inning, only two of which even hit 90 mph and none were above 91.6 mph.
Both of those were to the opposing pitcher.
Luis Garcia's two out RBI double to right off Drew Smyly puts the Nationals up 4-2 in the eighth. #Braves
The 117.2 innings that Drew Smyly has pitched this season are the most he’s thrown since 2016.
That probably has a lot to do with his lack of velocity.
I know Smyly sucks but this offense is sucking it up against minor league pitching
Smyly throwing 90-92 mph heaters? Wasn't he throwing 96 last year?
Smyly’s not good enough to start but he’s good enough to pitch in the 8th inning of a 1 run game?
lmao SNITKER BROUGHT IN SMYLY TO PITCH IN A ONE-RUN GAME LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
For real, this guy shouldn't be a manager.
Smyly needs to go. Bring Muller back up.
Lmao. I mean, all Smyly does is throw 90 mph meatballs, and he gets a case of whiplash everytime the ball gets hit
Lmao. what a dumb decision. Put Luke Jackson in or something. Smyly is nothing more than a LH Josh Tomlin at this rate

Let’s all not forget that Snitker went to Smyly in a one run game……. in the 8th……. in the middle of a pennant race……..
There can’t be a single soul in Atlanta that believes that Drew Smyly is good coming into the game in the 8th inning…#ForTheA
The offense has definitely been the bigger problem tonight, but I still don’t like using Smyly there.
I gave you bears to watch and you chose Smyly.
It did. It just came back. 😂 Maybe we can get Smyly to go away for the next two months.
Who in their right mind pitches Smyly in that situation?
I think he's trying to lose on purpose. Either that or he's mentally challenged. No other explanation for a guy who has been in baseball all his life. This make a wish needs to end.
Drew Smyly cant get guys out as a starter and he sucks out of the bullpen 🤦🏻♂️
Could I, a man who has never played organized baseball before, hit Drew Smyly’s curveball?
Why is a team fighting to get to the postseason throwing guys like Smyly and Santana?
When do the Braves DFA Smyly?
