  • Braves' Jackson Stephens: Re-signs with Atlanta

    Stephens was re-signed by Atlanta to a one-year, $740,000 contract Monday.

    Stephens hit free agency last month after being removed from Atlanta's 40-man roster, but he's back now on a non-guaranteed split contract. The 28-year-old held a 3.69 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with 47 strikeouts over 53.2 innings last season.

  • Braves' Jackson Stephens: Designated for assignment

    Stephens was designated for assignment Tuesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Atlanta needed to clear a 40-man roster spot for Dennis Santana, whom it just acquired for cash from Texas. Stephens, 28, had a 3.69 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 47 strikeouts in 53.2 innings last season.

  • Braves' Jackson Stephens: Gets first MLB start since 2017

    Stephens will serve as Atlanta's starting pitcher in Wednesday's game in Miami, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Manager Brian Snitker likely would have turned to Max Fried (illness) to take the hill Wednesday if playoff positioning was still on the line, but the southpaw will instead get some added time to rest up after Atlanta clinched the National League East crown Tuesday. As a result, Stephens will get the chance to open Wednesday's contest in what will be his first MLB start since 2017, when he was a member of the Reds. Stephens has maxed out at 3.1 innings over his 16 appearances in the second half, so he might not work more than once through the batting order.

  • Braves' Jackson Stephens: Struggles in spot start

    Stephens allowed three runs on five hits and two walks and did not notch a strikeout over three innings in a no-decision against Miami on Wednesday.

    With Atlanta locked into a first-round playoff bye, manager Brian Snitker opted to give Stephens his first major-league start since 2017. The right-hander gave the team three innings but needed 56 pitches to get through those frames. Stephens worked mostly in middle relief for Atlanta this season, though he did record two saves and two holds along with three wins while posting a 3.69 ERA and 1.34 WHIP over 53.2 innings. Prior to Wednesday he had pitched six straight scoreless outings covering 6.2 frames, bolstering his chances at a roster spot for the NLDS.

  • Braves' Jackson Stephens: Returns from IL

    Atlanta reinstated Stephens (concussion) from the 7-day injured list Sunday.

    Right-hander Bryce Elder was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett to clear room on the active roster for Stephens, who had been on the shelf since Aug. 27. The 28-year-old has been a useful piece out of the Atlanta bullpen this season, logging a 3.89 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 44 innings to go with two saves and two holds over 32 appearances.

  • Braves' Jackson Stephens: Placed on injured list

    Stephens was placed on the 7-day concussion injured list Saturday.

    Stephens was hit in the head by a comebacker during Friday's matchup against the Cardinals, and he'll be unavailable for at least a week after being diagnosed with a concussion. Jay Jackson was recalled to take Stephens' place in the bullpen.

  • Braves' Jackson Stephens: Exits with injury

    Stephens exited Friday's game against the Cardinals in the bottom of the ninth inning after being hit in the head by a comebacker, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Stephens was able to walk off the field under his own power after being checked out by trainers, but he was still removed from Friday's matchup after allowing three runs on four hits and a walk while failing to strike out a batter in one-third of an inning. The right-hander will presumably be evaluated for a concussion, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be forced to miss additional time.

  • Braves' Jackson Stephens: Three-inning save

    Stephens earned the save, striking out one in three innings while allowing a hit in Tuesday's 10-4 win in Washington.

    Stephens came on in the seventh inning with Atlanta leading 9-4 and finished off the Nationals for his second three-inning save of the season. The righty typically works in low-leverage situations, and his latest appearance fits into that category. After a three-year absence from big-league action, the 28-year-old has put together a solid 2.61 ERA and 21:5 K:BB in 22 innings.

  • Braves' Jackson Stephens: Takes loss in extras

    Stephens (0-1) was stuck with the loss Sunday against the Padres, giving up four runs (two earned) on three hits and a walk over two innings of relief. He struck out one.

    He entered the game to begin the 10th inning and had few problems, but things spiraled out of control for Stephens in the 11th after a leadoff double by Ha-Seong Kim. The right-hander had been solid in a long relief role for Atlanta until Sunday, and he carries a 3.00 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 13:4 K:BB through 12 innings with one three-inning save on his ledger.

  • Braves' Jackson Stephens: Contract selected

    Stephens' contract was selected by Atlanta on Tuesday.

    Stephens owns a 4.83 ERA in 63.1 career major-league innings, the last of which came in 2018. He'll likely fill a low-leverage bullpen role for now.

  • Braves' Jackson Stephens: Receives chance in Atlanta

    Stephens signed a minor-league contract with Atlanta on Wednesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Stephens posted a 1.82 ERA over 49.1 innings while playing in the Venezuelan Winter League this year, and he apparently showed enough to warrant a look from the reigning World Series champions. The 27-year-old appeared in 36 big-league games for the Reds between 2017 and 2018, posting a 4.83 ERA in 63.1 frames.

  • Reds' Jackson Stephens: Clears waivers

    Stephens cleared waivers Monday and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville.

    Stephens pitched at least 25 innings in the big leagues in both 2017 and 2018 but did not see another opportunity in 2019. He spent the entirety of the year with Louisville, where he posted a 5.14 ERA in 84 innings.

  • Reds' Jackson Stephens: Sent to minor-league camp

    Stephens was moved to minor-league camp Monday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Stephens has thrown 63.1 innings for the Reds over the last two seasons, recording a mediocre 4.83 ERA. He could be back with the Reds at some point this season when injuries strike the team's bullpen.

  • Reds' Jackson Stephens: Reinstated from disabled list

    Stephens (knee) was activated from the 10-day DL on Wednesday.

    Stephens will rejoin the bullpen after spending the past five weeks on the shelf due to a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee. The 24-year-old was able to pitch in seven Triple-A games while on a rehab assignment, including a three-inning outing against Indianapolis on Friday. Look for him to be available immediately versus the Brewers on Wednesday. In a corresponding move, Amir Garrett (foot) was put on the DL.

  • Reds' Jackson Stephens: Set to begin rehab stint

    Stephens (knee) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Stephens landed on the disabled list July 24 with a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee, so it's encouraging to see him head out on a minor-league rehab stint so soon. He'll toss one inning or 20-to-25 pitches Tuesday and will likely build from there. Assuming everything goes off without a hitch, the 24-year-old righty could find himself back in the big-league bullpen before the end of the month. Prior to suffering the injury, Stephens compiled a 4.82 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 23 strikeouts in 28 innings as a long reliever for the Reds.

  • Reds' Jackson Stephens: Suffers torn meniscus

    Stephens was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee.

    While the move is retroactive to Monday, Stephens' season is likely over, given the nature of the injury. The 24-year-old righty logged a 4.82 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 23 strikeouts in 28 innings as a long reliever out of the big-league bullpen.

  • Reds' Jackson Stephens: Earns win in relief Wednesday

    Stephens threw 1.2 scoreless innings in relief Wednesday against the Braves and got the win when the Reds rallied to take the lead in the seventh inning and held on.

    Stephens lowered his ERA to 4.08 over 17.2 innings with the outing. After getting four big-league starts last year, Stephens has been limited to middle relief with the big club this year. He has improved his control considerably since getting the call, allowing just two walks.
