If the weather in Port Charlotte is clear enough for baseball to be played, we should have an interesting few innings on our hands for today’s game. That’s because increasingly-hot prospect Michael Harris will be in the starting lineup for the Braves today. Additionally, lineup regulars like Dansby Swanson and Austin Riley are scheduled to start today’s game, as well.

Also, the Braves got some mixed news on the COVID-19 front. Max Fried has been cleared to work out after a possible exposure, but now Sean Newcomb is being held out for the same reason. Hopefully Newcomb doesn’t come down with it, and you don’t need me to tell you how much of a relief it is that Fried has avoided catching the virus.
