The Atlanta Braves have had some young pitchers come to the front line of their pitching staff this season. Mike Soroka, in some circles, is looked at as the ace of this staff.

With him being so young, at this time of the year, Soroka may be a candidate to be held on a more strict pitch count. 

Jon Chuckery believes that load management should be a very familiar term around the clubhouse.

"They've played a lot of games," Chuckery said.

Guys like Josh Donaldson and Freddie Freeman should be in the conversation to be given a couple of nights off. Last year, the Braves surprised a lot of people by winning the division. But if they want to make a run in the postseason, the Braves are going to have to start resting their positional players.
