MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves will get their final regular season tune up before the postseason begins on Sunday when they face the New York Mets.

Brian Snitker will deploy a lineup featuring most of his regulars including Freddie Freeman. There was some question as to whether Freeman was dealing with soreness in his elbow Saturday night but he is back in the lineup nonetheless. Brian McCann will hit sixth and catch Mike Soroka while Rafael Ortega gets the start in center field and will hit eighth.

UPDATE - Josh Donaldson has been scratched from the Braves’ lineup according to’s Mark Bowman.

And here is the new lineup with Adeiny Hechavarria replacing Donaldson.

Donaldson is reportedly fine but has a welt just above his left hip after he was hit by a Steven Matz pitch Saturday night.

For the Mets, Brandon Nimmo will lead off and play center field. Pete Alonso will look to add to his rookie record home run total and will be hitting second. Michael Conforto gets the start in right field and will be followed by Robinson Cano who will hit cleanup and play second base. Thomas Nido will hit eighth and catch Noah Syndergaard. It is worth noting that Syndergaard has a 2.79 ERA in 11 games with Nido as his catcher which is by far his best numbers on the season.

Sunday’s game will get underway at 3:10 p.m. ET and can be seen on Fox Sports South.
