The Braves take the field again against the Cubs on Wednesday with Huascar Ynoa taking the mound against Cubs’ star Kyle Hendricks. Ynoa has been quite good so far this season in the fifth starter spot, with a 3.68 ERA, 4.32 FIP, and 2.86 xFIP. Ynoa’s electric combination of a high 90s fastball and a filthy slider have been effective in 3 of 4 starts and 4 of 5 overall appearances this season for Atlanta.
Atlanta enters the day 0.5 games behind in the NL East standings, as the rest of the division has shared Atlanta’s mediocrity to begin the season. Atlanta could take the divisional lead with a win and a Mets loss, as well as get back to .500 on the season.
