The Atlanta Braves will welcome back a familiar face to Turner Field on Saturday as Shelby Miller takes the hill for the Arizona Diamondbacks in the middle game of a three-game set. The Diamondbacks took the first game of the series on Friday 7-2 behind a good performance from Zach Grienke.

It has been a tough start to the season for Miller who is 0-3 with a 8.49 ERA through six starts this season. He has failed to make it out of the fourth inning in three of his past four starts.

The Braves will counter with Julio Teheran who has pitched well of late but has little to show for it. Teheran is 0-3 on the season with a 3.72 ERA but has allowed just eight hits and one run over his last two starts. During that span, he has struck out 17 batters while walking just four.

Atlanta made a roster move prior to Saturday's game activating outfielder Ender Inciarte from the disabled list while optioning Adonis Garcia to Triple-A Gwinnett. Inciarte has appeared in just three games this season due to a hamstring injury. He completed a rehab assignment on Friday and is expected to be in the Braves' outfield Saturday night.
