Where: Turner Field
When: 7:10 p.m.
TV/Radio: SPSO/680, 93.7, 106.7
Probable starting pitchers: TBA vs. LH Justin Nicolino (2-2, 3.65)
What's new: Shelby Miller was originally scheduled to start Tuesday but got pushed up to pitch Monday after Mike Foltynewicz came down with a virus. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Manny Banuelos, currently on rehab assignment at Triple-A, and former starter Edwin Jackson were leading candidates for starts the next two days, along with Sugar Ray Marimon. September call-ups will bring some fresh faces, including what is expected to be the long-awaited arrival of Cuban third baseman Hector Olivera. He had doubled in three straight games for Gwinnett entering Monday to build a little momentum after struggling at first to find his timing and comfort level at the plate. Adonis Garcia went 6-for-13 (.462) with a double and a homer in the Yankees series against the team that released him at the end of spring training. His playing time figures to diminish when Olivera arrives.
