Touki Toussaint sent down to Triple-A Gwinnett

The Braves optioned Touki Toussaint to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Toussaint had a disastrous outing on Saturday versus the Indians, allowing seven runs and getting just four outs. Mike Soroka pitched well in his 2019 debut earlier this week and has seemingly taken that rotation spot for now. We'll see Toussaint again at some point this season.

Touki Toussaint gets lit up by Indians Saturday

Braves starter Touki Toussaint allowed seven earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out two over just 1 1/3 innings on Saturday in a no-decision against the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Impact

Toussaint was bailed out by the Atlanta offense on Saturday, but this was not a great audition for staying in the starting rotation. After tossing six scoreless innings in relief in his previous appearance, Toussaint was given the start with Sean Newcomb getting demoted to the minor leagues to work through his issues. With the Braves having a plethora of starting pitching options to choose from, it is not a given that Toussaint makes his next start. If he does, it will likely come against the Colorado Rockies at home.

Touki Toussaint's start postponed

Touki Toussaint's start on Friday against the Indians has been postponed due to rain, he'll pitch on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Toussaint was rock solid in his first start of the season against the Mets where he allowed no earned runs through six innings pitched. He's expected to remain in the rotation this year.

Touki Toussaint will remain in Atlanta rotation for now

Braves manager Brian Snitker says Touki Toussaint will remain in the Braves' rotation "for the time being".

Fantasy Impact

Toussaint was brilliant out of the bullpen on Saturday, striking out seven while now allowing an earned run in six innings. Sean Newcomb has been optioned to Triple-A, which could line up Toussaint for a Friday start versus the Indians. He should be added in every fantasy league.

Touki Toussaint optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett

The Braves have optioned Touki Toussaint to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Fantasy Impact

Toussaint began the spring as a candidate to win a rotation spot but was simply out-pitched by others. The 22-year-old should still spend some time in the rotation at some point this year, however. He'll even be a decent streaming candidate in the right matchups early on. Toussaint was ranked as the 53rd best prospect by Baseball America this off-season.
