Braves move Miller up a day to start for ill Foltynewicz
ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves have moved Shelby Miller into Mike Foltynewicz’s rotation spot for Monday night’s game against the Miami Marlins.
Foltynewicz is suffering from fever and viral symptoms.
Miller (5-11) will try to snap an 18-start winless streak, the longest in a single season since the Braves moved to Atlanta in 1966. Jo-Jo Reyes went 18 starts without a win from June 18, 2008-May 13, 2009. Carl Morton has the longest franchise streak at 22 starts from Sept. 10, 1975-July 18, 1976.
Miller, a first-time All-Star in his first year with the Braves, has a 2.62 ERA that ranks eighth in the NL.
Foltynewicz (4-6) has a 5.71 ERA in his rookie season.
