While I was out

on .

Okay, I've been out for the last week, but here's the last week in a brief recap: Mike Hampton tore his oblique muscle while taking batting practice and will miss at least 2 months.† The Braves went out and signed left-hander Mark Redman to help create more competition for the rotation.† Redman, Lance Cormier, and Kyle Davies are competing for the last 2 spots in the rotation.† Redman arrived Saturday and immediately started.† He went 3 innings allowing 1 run with no walks, 2 hit batters, and struck out 2.† Cormier pitched in relief that day and pitched 4 shutout innings, walking none and striking out 5. Davies started today, pitching 4 shutout innings but with no Ks and 3 walks.† Here are pitching stats so far among the starters:† (stats gathered from atlantabraves.com) John Smoltz:† 0 ERA in 5 innings with 4 hits, no walks and 4 Ks Tim Hudson:† 1.50 ERA in 6 innings with 6 hits, no walks and 4 strikeouts. Chuck James:† 1.80 ERA in 5 innings allowing 7 hits, 1 walk, and 3 strikeouts. Kyle Davies:† 2.25 ERA in 8 innings on 7 hits, 5 walks, and 3 strikeouts Lance Cormier:† 2.00 ERA in 9 innings on 8 hits, 1 walk, and 10 strikeouts Mark Redman:† 3.00 ERA in 3 innings on 2 hits, no walks, and 2 strikeouts. Right now I would favor Redman and Cormier for the last 2 spots in the rotation.† Cormier pitched far better than Davies last September, plus Davies still doesn't appear to have good command and could use more work at Triple A maybe. Otherwise there isn't much to report.† Everyone is doing well and getting in shape.† Mike Gonzalez and Macay McBride's ERAs are high, but they're working on stuff presumably.
