Monday, 4:05 PM

Ryan Weber, RHP

Weber makes his first start of the season for Atlanta on Monday, filling in for Matt Wisler, who is recovering from a sore left oblique. Don’t expect him to go too deep. Weber hasn’t thrown more than 49 pitches in a relief appearance this season.

Max Scherzer, RHP

Scherzer will face the Braves for the 11th time in his career. He is 3-3 with a 4.01 ERA against the them. Since joining the Nationals, Scherzer is 10-10 with a 2.98 ERA at Nationals Park.

Tuesday, 7:05 PM

Williams Perez, RHP

The Braves activated Perez from the 60-day DL when rosters expanded Sept. 1 and he’ll make his first start since June 6, when he strained his right rotator cuff. He made three rehab starts, most recently tossing five shutout innings for Gwinnett.

Gio Gonzalez, LHP

Gonzalez is still seeking his first win against the Braves this season. He has yet to get a decision, but he has a 2.31 ERA in two starts against them.

Wednesday, 7:05 PM

Mike Foltynewicz, RHP

Foltynewicz picked up the win the last time he faced the Nationals, despite allowing four runs over 5 2/3 innings. He also struck out the fewest batters -- three -- that he has in a start of at least five innings this season.

TBA

I realize the Braves want to protect Dansby but sooner or later he's got to face the best pitchers. I mean WTF? It's actually pretty embarrassing the way they're treating Dansby.

Well, when he already straight up admitted a few months ago that he was so tired that he could barely hit off a tee before their all star break... It's actually pretty noticeable when you watch closely, he can hit some when he's just trying to hit it to the opposite field, but when he tries to pull the ball he's a little late on everything.

I have no problem with them giving him days off. But it's pretty noticeable that they don't want him facing good pitching. This is the 4th game he's not started. Max Scherzer (twice), Zack Greinke and Madison Bumgarner were the pitchers for those games. Sooner or later the kid gloves have to come off especially if he's the player we all think he is.

If you're going to pitch Turner inside, don't do it in the strike zone. I don't think most of these pitchers have command though. You need to pitch him in the dirt inside if you're trying to go for a strikeout or just show a pitch that is way inside to set up something outside.

0-2 count. Wasted a pitch down and in the dirt away. That was a good pitch. Then they tried for a 2-seamer on the inside corner hoping to jam him and he crushed it. Terrible decision.
