After a wild one on Monday, the Atlanta Braves have set off to Philadelphia for Game Three of the now even National League Division Series. The Braves have yet to announce their starting pitcher, which has brought about plenty of speculation.
Some expect the Braves to hand the ball to rookie AJ Smith-Shawver, who has started just five big league games.
Bryce Elder’s name has also been thrown around, as well as the least likely option in Charlie Morton, who was activated from the injured list on Sunday.
Nonetheless, the Braves will announce their starter with plenty of time before first pitch, which is set for this evening at 5:07 ET in Citizens Bank Park.
