Braves’ Hampton won’t pitch Saturday

ESPN has Davies as the starter for Saturday’s game in Boston. Hey, kid, welcome to the Major Leagues! We’ll start you off easy, pitching to the World Champs in Fenway Park! I’d like to you meet Manny and Papi! Anyway, there hasn’t been a formal announcement and I don’t know that Davies will even be ready to go.

The Braves will have to send someone down, of course. Assuming they don’t go completely stupid and go with thirteen pitchers (Pete Orr is the only position player with an option left) that means either Colon or Childers will be sent down after Friday’s game. Putting Kolb on the DL with “inability to pitch” like they did Wohlers when he lost it is too much to ask for.
