Mike Foltynewicz was brilliant in the Atlanta Braves 7-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night.

Foltynewicz allowed just one earned run (a solo home run), three hits, seven strikeouts and zero walks over 7 innings of work.

Dallas Keuchel, Mike Soroka, Max Fried, and Julio Teheran have all been a part of the Braves postseason rotation conversation. With Folty's last two starts, does manager Brian Snitker need to consider adding him to that rotation?

The Braves magic number is 10 to clinch a playoff spot so Snitker has to figure out when/if to rest guys. He'll also have to consider something else.

"The other thing he's going to have to deal with is figuring out who is going to be in your starting rotation in the playoffs," Andy Bunker said. "I really wish I knew what his philosophy was on that."

"I still think it's too early," Randy McMichael responded. "I don't think he knows."

"What I do like is the fact that (Snitker) hasn't told anyone anything," Andy continues. "These guys over the last three weeks are going out there trying to earn it."
