The Atlanta Braves are in full-fledged turmoil, as the team has jettisoned Alex Wood, Jose Peraza and Jim Johnson to the Dodgers in exchange for Hector Olivera and other pieces. However, there is still a game on the horizon, as the Braves kick off a four-game set against the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday evening.
On paper, this is perhaps the most interesting pitching match-up of the weekend, with Shelby Miller facing off against former Braves right-hander Aaron Harang. Harang has cooled off considerably since a red-hot start, but anything seems possible against Atlanta's struggling offense.
As always, let's try to get this victory together. Stay tuned throughout the evening.
