Charlie Morton will make his second start of the spring Saturday when the Atlanta Braves take on the Detroit Tigers at CoolToday Park. Morton made his spring debut last week where he allowed a solo home run in 2 2/3 innings against the Yankees. Right hander Matt Manning will get the start for Detroit.

Ozzie Albies, Matt Olson, Austin Riley and Sean Murphy are all in Saturday’s lineup for Atlanta. Braden Shewmake will get the start at shortstop while Eli White, Forrest Wall and Justin Dean will man the outfield. Raisel Iglesias, Joe Jimenez, A.J. Minter and Lucas Luetge are among the group of pitchers expected to follow Morton.

For the Tigers, Riley Greene, Spencer Torkelson and Austin Meadows are all in the lineup. Justyn-Henry Malloy will get the start at DH and hit eighth. Atlanta traded Malloy to Detroit during the offseason for reliever Joe Jimenez. Malloy has appeared in six games with the Tigers this spring and is 0-for-7 at the plate with five strikeouts.

No local TV broadcast again for Saturday’s game, but it will be available to stream via
