First pitch for the first of two scheduled games today is set for 1:05 PM ET. Braves lineup:
- Michael Bourn, CF
- Martin Prado, LF
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Freddie Freeman, 1B
- Brian McCann, C
- Dan Uggla, 2B
- Juan Francisco, 3B
- Paul Janish, SS
- Ben Sheets, P
Some personnel moves: Matt Diaz
is on the DL with a right thumb contusion that sounds pretty serious according to Mark Bowman and Dave O' Brien. Jonny Venters
was supposed to make a second rehab appearance for Gwinnett, but instead has been activated due to the need for relief help.
Also, Craig Kimbrel
and Eric O'Flaherty have both pitched three days in a row, so they are said to be unavailable today. Things could get interesting bullpen wise.
