Another Braves’ prospect may be getting the call.

When news broke that Kolby Allard was scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday many thought it signaled that he was part of an impending trade. However, it appears now that the move was made so that he could make his Major League debut later this week.

Yahoo Sports’ Jeff Passan reports that Atlanta will call up Allard who will make a spot start on Tuesday against the Miami Marlins.

That could be a good thing not only for Allard but also could provide an extra day of rest for Sean Newcomb who threw a career high 134 pitches on Sunday. Atlanta hasn’t yet announced rotation plans beyond Monday where Julio Teheran will start in the series opener.

Allard has made 18 starts for Gwinnett this season where he has a 2.80 ERA in 109 1/3 innings. He was ranked 12th in Talking Chop’s mid-season Top 30 prospects update.
