The Braves will line up with the regulars in the lineup behind Ian Anderson as they take on the New York Mets in an important series. Ehire Adrianza takes his place as the new regular in left field, batting sixth, with Ozzie Albies batting third and Austin Riley batting fourth, after Ozuna’s injury pushed everyone up in the lineup and left a gap in left field. This outfield alignment is one that none of us expected to see in February, but a few injuries and some underperformances later and here we are with Guillermo Heredia in center and Ehire Adrianza in left. This appears to be the outfield alignment that will be used for the next while by Brian Snitker and Atlanta.

Meanwhile on the New York side, the Mets continue to run out a sub-optimal lineup hindered by the plague of injuries they’ve suffered this season, including catcher James McCann at first base.
