At 7:10 pm this evening, the Atlanta Braves professional baseball club will take on the surprising Miami Marlins. Kyle Wright returns to the roster to hopefully turn his season around against one of the best young arms in baseball in Sixto Sanchez.

Lineups Post

The Braves got some less than great news today as they had to put Max Fried on the injured list, although it sounds like he shouldn’t miss more than one start. Charlie Culberson was designated for assignment as well in order to make room for Wright as well as the return of Jacob Webb from the injured list.

The offense has remained fun to watch. Not only have the usual suspects of Acuna, Dansby, and Freddie continued their good work all season, but Austin Riley has begun to emerge at the plate and Marcell Ozuna’s recent binge at the plate earned him National League Player of the Week honors this past week. Just us as we follow along with the game and someone put me down for Ronnie in the WPA sweepstakes.
