Phillies at Braves

Turner Field

7:35PM EDT on CSN

Vince Velasquez (8-2) 3.34 ERA

PHILLIES: Interestingly, Velasquez’s name has popped up in trade rumors as Monday's non-waiver Trade Deadline approaches, but it is safe to say the Phillies would need to be overwhelmed to trade one of their best young pitchers.

Tyrell Jenkins (0-2) 6.17 ERA

BRAVES: Jenkins fared decently in his first two career starts and then had trouble commanding his fastball during Sunday’s game at Coors Field. His inability to get a consistent feel for his slider has led some to project him as a reliever.
