Culberson gets rare start.

MLB: Detroit Tigers at Atlanta Braves Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Mike Foltynewicz returns to the Braves rotation Tuesday night when they continue their series against the Minnesota Twins.

For the Braves, Charlie Culberson gets a rare start at shortstop replacing Johan Camargo who has struggled during his stint replacing Dansby Swanson. Camargo is just 5-for-43 in the 12 games since Swanson went on the injured list. Matt Joyce gets his second straight start as the team’s DH while Brian McCann will catch for the second straight night and hit fifth.

Miguel Sano gets the start at third base on Tuesday after his two-run home run was the difference in Monday’s win. Mitch Garver will catch Jose Berrios and will hit fifth. C.J. Cron gets the start at first base and will hit eighth.
