MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The team hasn’t named a starter for Friday’s game as of this writing, so speculation is that Bailey Falter is coming up. That would be interesting as Joe Girardi tries to help the rotation get a bit of rest as several players are coming back from Covid-related stints on the IL. Admirable, especially early in the season, but the chances of it backfiring are real. Pitchers like routine and to take them off of their schedule may have an effect. It’ll be interesting to watch if it actually happens.

On to the links.
