Charlie Morton takes the hill against Taijuan Walker in the first of a 4-game series. The Braves have Max Fried then Spencer Strider for games 3 and 4, but game 2 is listed as a TBD and today’s transaction might give us a glimpse into who could be utilized.

First off…and yes, it’s a selfish want, but I absolutely love Jackson Stephens and it warms my heart he is back with the team, but it does suck that it comes at the cost of shelving Michael Soroka for the year. With Allan Winans, Darius Vines, and Dylan Dodd all recently optioned, AJ Smith-Shawver still stands and I’m guessing that either he or Stephens will take the mound tomorrow.
