Mike Minor vs. Eric Stults

Fredi Gonzalez considered giving Chipper today off and playing Prado at 3B and Johnson in LF according to DOB, but he's in the lineup today.

  1. Michael Bourn - CF
  2. Martin Prado - LF
  3. Jason Heyward - RF
  4. Chipper Jones - 3B
  5. Freddie Freeman - 1B
  6. Dan Uggla - 2B
  7. Brian McCann - C
  8. Paul Janish - SS
  9. Mike Minor - P

Minor lost his only previous start against San Diego, which was May 31 last year (6 IP, 3 ER); Headley had a seven-game hitting streak snapped yesterday during which he hit .385 (10-26) with 5 HR, 13 RBI and nine runs scored; San Diego's 81 home runs are the third-fewest in the Majors, 54 of them in road games; the Braves are 16-11 against the Padres since 2008.
