Here is Braves beat writer Mark Bowman’s thoughts after the game!
Completely wrong on this one. Snit said he liked the progress Ynoa made tonight. He was primarily talking about mound presence. I think the whiff rate and exit velo told a different story, especially the second time through the lineup. https://t.co/NQVPSz79OV— Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) April 19, 2022
