This time around the year it may be a little tricky figuring out who will be motivated to play with baseball. The Atlanta Braves’ focus right now is currently staying healthy. They don’t want to emphasise their pitching, but also wish to be ready to opt for the postseason. Last night was one of the nights. The Braves are all NL East champions, so regardless of what happens down the stretch, they’re going as champs into October.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have clinched the best record in the majors, therefore there is nothing to play there too. No one is currently threatening to grab them at the National League, thus there isn’t much going on for them. The only thing they could improve on is perhaps finishing with a better record than the Minnesota Twins. Then the Twins would have homefield advantage and have the album, When the Twins and Braves happened to meet in the World Series.
So, in other words, there is in factn’t much for the Braves to perform this week. The nearest race at the moment appears to be between Indians and the Rays. As the Rays go into Wednesday with a slim half game lead for the last wildcard in the American League those two clubs are playing baseball. And so far as the Royals are concerned, they are certainly playing for nothing.
Apart from having some young men encounter, there isn’t anything happening in KC. The Braves are expected to attack the Royals tonight. He is going to find the night off, although mike Soroka was initially educated. Instead, Josh Tomlin is currently going to throw an inning or 2, then hand away the ball . Tomlin has not made a beginning because 2018 with the Indians. The Royals are expected to counter with Mike Montgomery. Head below for our complimentary Braves vs. Royals pick.

Josh Tomlin has been busy with the Braves this season, but maybe not as a starting pitcher. They aren’t expected to offer a workload to him , but Tomlin had been a pitcher at Cleveland. After flaming out using a 6.14 ERA, Tomlin was immediately transferred to the bullpen where he’s remained ever since. Tomlin has created 49 appearences as a reliever for the Braves, submitting a commendable 3.82 ERA.
In 36 innings, he’s posted an ERA of 4.50 and 1.19 WHIP. The Royals have done nicely against Tomlin in his profession. So Tomlin isn’t anyone fresh they seen him lots in the AL Central if he had been with the Indians. The Royals are hitting against .301 with 15 runs scored against Tomlin. So expect to see two innings out of Tomlin again, however, this will be a bullpen game. The Braves’ bullpen possesses a 4.23 ERA in 2019.
The Braves have scored 21 runs against Mike Montgomery at 125 at-bats. They know him best from his time in Chicago with the Cubs. Montgomery has gotten torched to get the 8.31 ERA and 2.00 WHIP in his past three outings. He allowed 12 runs to get a fairly challenging time. Montgomery does have a nice 2.51 ERA at Kansas City, but note his 1.42 WHIP and .348 OBP. He has had to fight his way and captured some breaks along the way with runners on base. The Braves typically know how to take advantage. This looks like an OVER day at Kauffman Stadium.
