Right-hander Julio Teheran will start Thursday when the Braves open a four-game series against the Nationals at SunTrust Park, but the rotation for the remainder of the weekend has yet to be determined.
Because of Max Fried’s trip to the injured list because of a blister, the Braves have a hole to fill in their rotation. Snitker said the team had yet to decide who would fill Fried’s spot when it comes up Saturday against the Nationals.
“We’ll do something, but the good thing is we have internal pieces that we’ll use to fill the holes,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said Thursday after the Braves’ 5-4 loss against the Brewers.
The Braves also benefit by having off-days on each side of a two-game interleague set with Kansas City next week, allowing Snitker a little flexibility in how he uses his staff.
