Mike Minor takes the hill for Atlanta, Jeff Francis for the Rockies.

As many of you already know, Jason Heyward underwent an appendectomy late Monday and was placed on the 15-day DL. As a result, Tyler Pastornicky was recalled from Gwinnett. Freddie is back in the lineup after missing time with a strained oblique.

  1. Andrelton Simmons - SS
  2. B.J. Upton - CF
  3. Justin Upton - LF
  4. Freddie Freeman - 1B
  5. Chris Johnson - 3B
  6. Evan Gattis - C
  7. Dan Uggla - 2B
  8. Reed Johnson - RF
  9. Mike Minor - P

Game time temperature expected to be 25-27 F.

Minor's 1.95 ERA since the 2012 ASB is second in the Majors only to teammate Kris Medlen (1.20). His only other start at Coors Field came May 5 of last year, giving up eight runs in five innings of Atlanta's eventual 13-9 win. It was his first of two starts against them that year, shutting them out over seven innings in a 1-0 win September 5.
