    The Diamondbacks completed the sweep and now the Braves will be

    heading to Cleveland after three bad games."Despite the fact that it was a beautiful day at SunTrust Park Ricky Vaughn Jersey , the action on the field wasnít so beautiful as the Braves ended up getting swept by the Diamondbacks after losing 4-1. The good news about todayís game is that Mike Soroka had a pretty good return to the big leagues, as he went five innings and struck out six while giving up two walks. Unfortunately, he didnít exactly come out of the gates firing on all cylinders as his first inning was one that weíd like to forget. After getting a quick out to start the game, Soroka gave up two singles in a row and then threw a wild pitch to move both runners into scoring position. This culminated with Adam Jones getting a productive groundout to bring in the first run of the day. Soroka was able to limit the damage to just that one run, but Arizonaís one run ended up holding up for most of the day. Thatís because the Bravesí bats just couldnít figure out Luke Weaver today. He got battered by the Braves the last time he came to SunTrust Park, so it appears as if Weaver came to SunTrust Park with vengeance on his mind. He went five innings just like Mike Soroka did, but he finished with nine strikeouts and just one walk. The Braves did get four hits off of him Michael Brantley Jersey , but they were unable to string any of those hits into a meaningful rally, so the Braves didnít put any runs on the board while Weaver was out there. Yet again, this game came down to which teamís bullpen could avoid calamity and once again, it ended up being the Braves who were the first to crumble. Chad Sobotka entered the game in the seventh inning and after getting the first out of the inning with no problem, he gave up a single and then Christian Walker continued his domination of the Braves in this series by hitting another homer. The damage didnít stop there. Tim Locastro walked, stole a base and then made it to third after Johan Camargo capped off a rough day at third base with a throwing error. Then Nick Ahmed entered as a pinch-hitter and promptly delivered a ground-rule double down the left field line to score Arizonaís third run of the inning. That was finally enough for Brian Snitker, as Chad Sobotka exited the game to a smattering of boos from the matinee crowd at SunTrust Park. Thatís been a familiar reception for Braves relievers as of late , huh. Fortunately, the Braves didnít get shut out today. Freddie Freeman made sure of that as he launched a bomb out into right field for Atlantaís only run of the game. They got another baserunner on in the ninth inning, but they were unable to cash him in and the Braves ended up getting swept by the Diamondbacks. The sweep was definitely a big shock when you consider how well the team was playing heading into this series, but it makes sense when you consider that each game the Braves lost was a direct result of the bullpen failing to keep runs off of the board. If anything, this series should be an eye-opener when it comes to the franchise potentially taking steps to do something about the bullpen, because this is absolutely a problem at the moment. Defense will matter more for Arizona, but will Kelly hit enough ?"If familiar with this series go ahead and skip to poll. If not Kenny Lofton Jersey , please read on.This series of articles will run from now until shortly before opening day. The purpose is to crowd source the D-Backs fans of this website to get a sense of how they feel about the prospects of each individual player on the 40 man roster. For this exercise I will only be using rate (average) stats and poll the readers on their sense of direction for that playerís level of basic performance, regardless of playing time expectations.Iím not including defense and base running, so no WAR here, as that is playing time dependent. You will be given two poll options:The player will either exceed the projection or under perform the projection by 5% for hitters OPS or 10% for pitchers ERA/FIP.There is no middle option to vote on. (Otherwise the majority of votes would end up agreeing with the projection).What I am looking for is if you are forced to indicate your sense of direction for the player, is it well over or under the projection?Other Points of note:Projections are the average of Steamer and ZIPS projections.(Click through for original tables)The projections draw on 3 or 4 year samples, weighting most recent seasons the heaviest, but Iím just showing 2018 and career statsin mini table below for simplicityThe playerís name is high lighted with a link to the playerís Baseball-Reference page.Click on that to see more player history and detailAge is the 2019 player age.Polls will run until mid March , so if you miss a player,you can go to the story stream box on the front page andfind a player you might have missed .Please let us know in the comments section your thoughts behind your vote. Thanks !CONTEXTCARSON KELLY , Age 24 NOTE:For players with little or no MLB playing time I will also show last 3 seasons of Minor League Stats in their tables. Carson Kelly is projected to produce a .694 OPS.Is he likely to come in Over or Under ?
