The Braves will make some history tonight if the weather permits them to play against the Miami Marlins as 20-year-old Kolby Allard is set to make his Major League debut. Allard is the third(!) 20-year-old prospect to debut for Atlanta this season which hasn’t happened since 1989 when the Texas Rangers debuted four players 20 or under.

Atlanta’s lineup seems to be on par with what we’ve come to expect for tonight’s game with Kurt Suzuki getting the honor to catch Allard’s first game.

Here is how the Braves stack up for tonight’s game:

The Marlins will roll out their everyday lineup with Dan Straily on the mound.

Here is the Marlins starting nine:

The Braves are looking to get on a winning streak and have had decent success against Dan Straily this season. Here’s to hoping the weather holds off long enough to play. Stay tuned.
