The Braves made a lineup tweak with Ozzie Albies struggling

While the Braves must think that Ozzie Albies is healthy enough to play, his struggles have clearly not gone unnoticed by the Braves as he has been moved down to seventh in the lineup. With Dansby Swanson swinging such a hot bat, it isn’t that surprising that he was the one chose to take his place in the two hole. Tyler Flowers gets the start behind the plate and Matt Adams gets the start at DH which means we get to see Marcell Ozuna play in the outfield which is....at times, less than desirable these days.

One the Blue Jays side, the top half of the lineup features some of the best young hitters in baseball in Bo Bichette, Cavan Biggio, and Vladdy Guerrero Jr. It sounds like Vladdy Jr. has been pushed down in the lineup a bit and Anthony Alford is getting the start with a lefty on the mound for the Braves.
