Kris Medlen takes the hill for the Braves while Ethan Martin makes his major-league debut for the Phillies.

  1. Jason Heyward - CF
  2. Justin Upton - RF
  3. Freddie Freeman - 1B

  5. Chris Johnson - 3B
  6. Dan Uggla - 2B

B.J. Upton is expected to be activated some time this weekend; tomorrow's scheduled starter Jonathan Pettibone has been DL'd, so John Lannan will start Saturday and Cliff Lee on Sunday.

The Phillies have been the toughest of any NL team on Medlen, who has a 5.82 ERA in 34 innings.
