J-Hey gets a night off. He needs it. I won’t go into the numbers, but they’re ugly, especially lately and especially against lefties. OK, one number: J-Hey’s 1-for-18 with nine Ks this season vs. southpaws.The Braves are also facing Jon Niese, the lefty who hit him in the face. I honestly don’t think that has much to do with Fredi’s sitting J-Hey.
I like the move.
Harang goes for Los Bravos. I fear that one of these starts Harang will turn back into an aging journeyman. Then again, maybe it won’t happen tonight.
Our lineup: Andrelton, BJ, Freddie, J. Upton, Gattis, Uggla, CJ, Doumit RF, Harang.
