The Atlanta Braves will head back to Fort Myers Tuesday for another matchup against the Boston Red Sox. Kyle Wright is scheduled to make his fourth start of the spring for Atlanta and will be looking to continue a solid run.
Wright allowed four hits and three runs over 1 1/3 innings in his spring debut. Since then he has allowed three hits over seven scoreless innings to go along with five strikeouts and two walks. Wright is part of the group competing for the final spot in the rotation if Mike Soroka does begin the season on the injured list.
Tanner Houck will get the nod for Boston Tuesday. Houck will be making his third appearance of the preseason. He limited the Braves to just one hit over three scoreless innings last week.
Ender Inciarte gets the start in center Tuesday and will lead off. Freddie Freeman, Marcell Ozuna and Dansby Swanson are the Braves’ regulars that are also in the lineup. William Contreras gets another start behind the plate.
