Ben Sheets said his “whole body felt dead” during Sunday’s start against the Mets, when he gave up five runs — four earned — in six innings.
“My whole body felt dead,” Sheets said. “I was like ?Weekend at Bernie’s? guy. I was like Bernie.” Sheets thinks it’s just normal soreness, and it’s not surprising he’s feeling it given that he’s now made six starts after injuries kept him out of baseball the last two years. The Braves are going with a six-man rotation over the next couple weeks, which should help him.
