UPDATES & NEWS
Dillon Gee (lat) resumed throwing Wednesday on flat ground.
Gee had a setback early last week and that has pushed his return off by at least a week, if not more. He was tentatively scheduled to return June 5, but had to be shut down to let the pain in his back subside once again and now they're back to flat ground sessions before allowing him to get back onto a mound. Depending on how he feels Saturday morning, the team could have him throwing from a mound by early next week and from there, a rehab session. How many starts in the minors he needs will probably be decided on a day-to-day basis. Mid-June seems like a fair estimate; possibly a few days past that.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Cameron Maybin went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday’s 7-1 loss to the Mets.
Maybin is seeing plenty of time in center field for the Braves right now, as he is a strong defensive player with exceptional range. At the plate, he has been anything but consistent, going just 4-for-28 over the last eight games. However, Maybin has displayed an unexpected power stroke, as three of those hits have left the yard. With enough at-bats, the fleet-footed 28 year old could have a shot at 15/15 production with regards to homers and steals. Analysis: Nate Miller
