3 Atlanta Braves relievers that need to step up

With the acquisition of Anthony Swarzak – who had struggled with the Seattle Mariners – everything seemed to change. The Atlanta Braves bullpen is now one of the best in baseball.

Closer Luke Jackson has been effective, but sometimes makes things really, really interesting. There are many rumors and fans are clamoring for an upgrade at the back of the bullpen.

Sean Newcomb, after a demotion to AAA has settled right into the pen, and many think he has what it takes to close.

Veterans Josh Tomlin and Jerry Blevins have rarely shined, but are giving fans what they expect, a solid performance.
