Braves | More changes may be coming for bullpen

Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said the backend of his bullpen has become too predictable, and the team may mix in RP Chad Durbin to help break up the pattern. RPs Eric O'Flaherty and Jonny Venters have been the primary setup men for RP Craig Kimbrel. "Everybody in America knows our back end is lefty-lefty-righty," Gonzalez said. "You could see the way they use their bench through the course of the game they are anticipating that. There is a little gamesmanship in me that wants to go lefty-righty-lefty. You notice during the course of the game other managers using their left-handed pinch-hitters earlier because they know we are going with back-to-back lefties in the seventh and eighth."
