Atlanta Braves at Milwaukee Brewers

The Atlanta Braves will kick-off their week by heading to Milwaukee to take on the Brewers. The Braves have built a sizeable lead in the NL East, while the Brewers are currently in second in the tightest division in baseball: the NL Central. The Brewers are going to want to take this series to keep up with their tough division race.

Players to Watch for

Atlanta Braves: Ronald Acuna Jr.

After an impressive Home Run Derby, Ronald Acuna Jr. has hit a homer in his first two games back. He’s one of the most exciting players in baseball, and fans rarely know what to expect from the 21-year-old. So far in his career, Acuna slashes .286/.355/.571 with a .926 OPS against current Brewers pitchers.

Milwaukee Brewers: Christian Yelich

This one is kind of obvious, but Christian Yelich has just been playing that well. He’s looking to earn back-to-back NL MVP titles, and it seems like only Cody Bellinger stands in his way. Yelich hits .299/.386/.370 against current Braves pitchers in his career. The slugging percentage is low, but he also hasn’t hit a bunch of home runs until the past few seasons.

Notable Injuries

Atlanta Braves:

    • Darren O’Day is out with a forearm injury.
    • Ender Inciarte can play in this series if his back allows.
    • Kevin Gausman will likely be back this week as his foot heals.

Milwaukee Brewers:

    • Corey Knebel is out for the season with Tommy John surgery.
    • Gio Gonzalez can return soon after recovering from “dead arm,” which is basically just pain from the throwing motion.
    • Jimmy Nelson will remain sidelined with a right elbow effusion.
