As you can see the Braves are intent on bringing back veteran lefty Jerry Blevins as the countermove to letting Venters go.

Venters has had a pretty awful start to 2019 sporting an ERA of 17.36 and not even good peripherals (13.62 FIP). Venters won the Comeback Player of the Year award in 2018 after having a successful return from his third Tommy John surgery.
