Rick and John debated on The midday Show Friday if it's time to call Sean Newcomb the ace of the Braves starting rotation.

Newcomb has made 11 starts this season and boasts a 6-1 record with 64 strikeouts, 30 walks and a 2.73 ERA in 62 2/3 innings of work. He was lights-out in May.

They also had an update on injured right fielder Ronald Acuña Jr. and info on another pitcher who could be back by next week and where Julio Teheran falls in all this.
