Open Thread 6/26: Braves vs. Tigers

With Jair Jurrjens set to return on Wednesday and Kris Medlen pitching so well, this is likely Kenshin Kawakami's last start for the foreseeable future. Kenshin will most likely be moved to a long relief role regardless of outcome today. After a great overall pitching peformance by Medlen and the Braves bullpen, it may be a hard task for Kenshin to keep the Tiger's bats cold. Max Scherzer will oppose him and he's been hot as of late. Jason Heyward is getting the day off and Gregor Blanco will play center with Melky Cabrera moving to right field and batting second. The recap may be posted a bit later in the day due to the game being on Fox and me being at work, a bad combination for users.
