The Braves are shorthanded behind the plate.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Miami Marlins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Braves got some good news regarding the status of Kurt Suzuki after he was hit by a pitch in last night’s game against the Pirates. It looks like the veteran catcher will not miss extended time, but as a precaution the Braves recalled Chris Stewart from Gwinnett.

Atlanta will roll with their usual lineup tonight with Ender Inciarte continuing to hit second. Here is how the Braves stack up tonight looking for the series sweep.

The Pirates offense has been abysmal of late so they’ll attempt to move catcher Fransisco Cervelli up in the lineup to see if they can get some production tonight to avoid the sweep. Here is how Pittsburgh will roll out.

It promises to be an exciting night as Julio Teheran looks to continue getting back on track against an offense that looks pretty dreadful right now.
