Braves vs Marlins


Recommended Posts

ATL: Williams Perez, RHP, 2-1, 3.86 ERA , 6 G, 32.2 IP, 16 SO, 1.13 WHIP

Perez has produced two strong starts against the Phillies and endured one rough outing against the Pirates since returning to the Majors. His fastball has had a little more life lately, and he's starting to show his changeup more frequently.

MIA: Adam Conley, LHP, 3-3, 4.15 ERA, 9 G, 47.2 IP, 45 SO, 1.43 WHIP

Conley will be glad to see someone other than the Nationals. Against them, he is 0-2 in three starts with a 9.00 ERA. In his other six starts, he has a 2.34 ERA in 34 2/3 innings. He's 2-0 with a 2.73 ERA on the road this year.

Aaron Blair appears to be the most likely candidate to make this start after Casey Kelly was forced to throw four innings in Wednesday’s 13-inning loss to Milwaukee. Blair has thrown just three innings since being sent back to Triple-A Gwinnett.

MIA: Wei-Yin Chen, LHP, 3-2, 4.61 ERA, 9 G, 54.2 IP, 45 SO, 1.34 WHIP

Home runs against are piling up on Chen, who has allowed six in his last six starts. The lefty had a no-decision against the Braves on April 15. He has gone at least six innings in six of nine starts, but seven innings just once.

Sunday, May 29, 5:05 PM EDT

ATL: Julio Teheran, RHP, 1-4, 2.57 ERA, 10 G, 63.0 IP, 59 SO, 1.03 WHIP

As Teheran has posted a 1.17 ERA over his past seven starts, he has commanded his changeup, which has made his 90-93 mph fastball seem livelier. His ability to locate inside has halted his struggles against left-handed hitters.

MIA: Tom Koehler, RHP, 2-5, 4.79 ERA, 9 G, 47.0 IP, 37 SO, 1.72 WHIP

Command has been an issue for Koehler, who seeks his first win since April 26. The right-hander has walked five in three straight starts. Koehler lost to the Braves on April 16, giving up six runs (five earned) in 3 2/3 innings.
