For the second time in as many starts German Marquez is tasked with ending a four game losing streak for the Rockies. He’ll have to stymie a Braves lineup that hung seven runs on his co-ace Kyle Freeland on Monday night.
Taking the mound for the Braves is former first round pick Max Fried. Acquired from the Padres in the Justin Upton trade, Fried bounced between the bullpen and the rotation last year for the Braves. He began this year in the bullpen but got the start on April 4 against the Cubs in Atlanta. He allowed just one hit over six shutout innings, walking none and striking out five, perhaps pitching himself into a permanent rotation spot, pending tonight’s results, of course.
Meanwhile, the Rockies have called up Yonathan Daza (no. 14 PuRP) to take David Dahl’s place now that he’s officially been placed on the 10-day injured list. As such, Bud Black is running out an...let’s call it “interesting” lineup tonight. We’ll see how it goes.
