The Atlanta Braves have been hit with the injury bug again. Jonny Venters has been moved to the 10-day injured list with a right calf strain. With that in mind, Jon Chuckery came up with a solution to the Braves' issues in the back end of their bullpen.

Chuckery wants the Braves to go with Touki Toussaint as their full-time closer.

His main reasoning for wanting to move Toussaint is that the Braves have to let their young guys get reps. He isn't a fan of bringing guys up and down from Gwinnett.

"If you're going to keep your young guys, let them pitch," Chuckery said. "The Braves have championed how much depth they have on their pitching staff and now it is time for them to put those arms to work."
