Thearon W. Henderson/Getty ImagesWhen the Atlanta Braves face the Los Angeles Dodgers in a National League Divisional Series matchup ... got-jersey , two notable players will be unavailable: Atlanta shortstop Dansby Swanson and Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling.According to ESPN'sAlden Gonzalez and Brad Doolittle, Swanson was left off the NLDS roster as he receives "treatment for a partially torn ligament in his left hand, suffered on a swing in a game last week." He hasn't played since Sept. 25.Mark Bowman mlbbowmanSwanson says his left hand is improving 鈥渟lowly, but surely.鈥滺e hopes to be ready if the Braves advance past the NLDSStripling, meanwhile, didn't make the cut for L.A., with the team already carrying 12 pitchers and an eight-man bullpen. He wasn't the only noticeablename left off of the Dodgers' NLDS roster: Veteran second baseman Chase Utley also didn't make the cut.Stripling's exclusion from the NLDS roster doesn't come as a huge surprise after his September struggles. He posted an 0-3 record, 6.75 ERA and 15 strikeouts in five appearances (four starts).Andy McCullough McCulloughTimesRyan Madson has not been particularly good this season, but opposing hitters OPSd .966 against Stripling in the second half. So it goes.With the Dodgers rolling withHyun-Jin Ryu,Clayton Kershaw,Walker BuehlerandRich Hillas the starters and Ryan Madson,Kenta Maeda Hunter Renfroe Jersey ,Scott Alexander,Caleb Ferguson,Pedro Baez, Dylan Floro and Alex Wood as options out of the bullpen to get the game to closer Kenley Jensen, Stripling was expendable.As for Swanson, the third-year shortstop had an up-and-down year, hitting .238 with 14 homers, 59 RBI, 51 runs and 10 stolen bases. He'll be replaced by Charlie Culberson, who hit .270 for the Braves this year with 12 homers and 45 RBI, largely in a utility role."He's probably been arguably maybe our most valuable player," Braves manager Brian Snitkersaid Freddy Galvis Jersey , per Gonzalez and Doolittle.Culberson, a former Dodger, is ready for the moment."I'm very familiar with the team over there, and I've definitely enjoyed my year so far here," he said, perMark Bradleyof theAtlanta Journal-Constitution."But we're not done yet. Our team has played really hard, just like everybody else, but we're in this position for a reason. There's no need to let off the gas now." Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto has been a force at the plate during his rookie season even though he is only 19 years old, but Atlanta Braves broadcaster Joe Simpson appeared to question his age Tuesday.Rudy Gersten shared Simpson's comments in which the broadcaster said: "If he's 19, he has certainly got his man growth. He is big and strong."Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports was critical of Simpson's comments and said the announcer was "stuck in the past" for suggesting something that hasn't been a concern for quite some time:Jeff Passan JeffPassanAge fraud hasn鈥檛 been a thing in Latin America in nearly a decade. But then again Joe Simpson is stuck in the past, so it鈥檚 not a surprise that he proffers this sort of garbage. Ignore it.Juan Soto is 19. Period. Full stop. And he鈥檚 doing things the game never has seen before. V5iWMkkleFSimpson did not present any supporting evidence for his suggestions and drew criticism from more people than just Passan:Chelsea Janes chelsea_janesHeard from below us: quot;Youre a moron Joe Simpson!quot; Simpson implied Juan Soto might not be 19 years old on the Braves broadcast of todays game.Kate Feldman kateefeldmanThe Braves absolutely cannot allow Joe Simpson to keep talking. izzwWvcYZV"I had a definite reaction," Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said Austin Hedges Jersey , per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. "I handled it face to face, privately with him. I believe he understood my stance on his comments."This isn't the first time this season the Braves broadcaster has found himself in hot water when it comes to his comments.Jimmy Hascup of USA Today noted the 66-year-old broadcaster criticized the Los Angeles Dodgers for wearing T-shirts and shorts during batting practice hours before a game even though Major League Baseball doesn't stipulate players wear their jerseys during the practice."They looked very unprofessional," Simpson said. "If I were a Dodger fan, I'd be embarrassed, and I don't know how Major League Baseball allows such attire when the gates are open."According to Hascup, "second baseman Chase Utley, in particular, drew the ire of Simpson" even though he was wearing a Dodgers' K Cancer T-shirt in support of a foundation that benefits cancer research.At least Enrique Hernandez had fun with the ordeal:Enrique Hern谩ndez kikehndezTomorrow鈥檚 BP attire cL5Yw8Hh3eAs for Soto, he is slashing .310/.424/.556 with 13 home runs and 37 RBI on the season and figures to be a critical part of Washington's postseason pursuit the rest of the way even at just 19 years old. His Nationals are five games behind the Philadelphia Phillies and 3.5 games behind the Braves in the National League East.
