Sam Bradford left Saturday's preseason game after suffering an apparent injury to his left knee. He will not return.
Considering a torn ACL ruined his 2013 season, anything that happens to Bradford's knees is a huge concern. He limped off the field and limped into the locker room and will undergo a series of tests to determine the potential damage. We'll call him day-to-day for now and suffer through watching Shaun Hill working under center now.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
