With the Atlanta Braves set to wrap up their three-game series against the Phillies Sunday night, there is a full slate of MLB games to pass the time during the afternoon. We have a pair of viewing picks for you today.

At 1:10 p.m. ET, the Tampa Bay Rays will try to complete a sweep of the Yankees on Sunday with Brent Honeywell scheduled to make his long awaited Major League debut. Honeywell was once a top prospect who has suffered multiple arm injuries but will finally reach the pinnacle Sunday. Another early option would be checking in on Mike Foltynewicz’s second start for the Rangers against the Padres at 2:35 p.m. ET. Foltynewicz allowed four hits and four runs over four innings in his first start.

At 4:10 p.m. ET, the Los Angeles Dodgers will be looking for their third straight win over the Washington Nationals. The game will feature a marquee pitching matchup between Max Scherzer and Clayton Kershaw.

That should be enough to keep you busy before the Braves get underway at 7 p.m. tonight. Let us know which game you are watching in the comments below.
