Bryse Wilson will be the next man up in the Braves’ battered rotation and start Tuesday night’s divisional contest with the Miami Marlins, according to Brian Snitker.

Wilson, who was recalled from the Gwinnett satellite site on Monday as Cole Hamels hit the injured list with shoulder fatigue, has appeared in just four games this season with poor results, pitching to the tune of a 7.04 ERA. The Braves will hope Wilson can cover at least a few innings to save the bullpen.

The Braves won an important first game of a four-game set with the Marlins on Monday night as Huascar Ynoa settled in nicely after a rough first inning. The Braves’ bullpen covered six innings, allowing just one run. The bullpen will likely be counted on once again on Tuesday as the club will hope Wilson can cover at least three or four innings. It’s a great opportunity for the young righty to showcase his stuff after a disappointing first go-round this year.
