oh this is going to be a smash spot! Callin up Voth who struggled in his brief apperence last year and isn't that good in the minor. The Braves have four of the top five barrel hitters in the league in their lineup and Soroka is leading the league in ground ball rate and soft contact. This shoudl be -200 IMO but I'll take -150 all day here

Regardless of who the Nats throw out there on the mound im going with the Braves here. Soroka is just too good and matches up well with a heavy right handed lineup. I am more then confident he will hold his own and limit this Nats team. While the Nationals have a fill in starter going for them that normally doesnt spell success. match that with a bullpen that has complete meltdowns like last night and this is a lock for me with the Braves.80%

Soroka may have allowed more than one earned run in both of his past two starts, but hes only done that a total of three times this season and is still a strong All-Star candidate. The rookie has struggled with his slider in his past two starts. Voth will be promoted from Triple-A Fresno to make a spot start on Sunday, making his first Major League appearance of the year where he has posted a 4.40 ERA and improved his K/9 rate to 10.0. All thinks considered I think Soroka is the more trusted commodity in this matchup. I like Atlanta at the cheap price today.50%

Washington Times: Nationals cut Rosenthal Sunday after Saturday's disastrous inning against Braves
The Nationals have cut their losses with Trevor Rosenthal -- and they hope that leads to fewer setbacks by a beleaguered bullpen.
Rosenthal, a veteran reliever, was released before Sunday's home game with Atlanta, after he walked all three batters he faced in a stunning 13-9 loss Saturday night to the Braves.
Rosenthal, once a top closer for the Cardinals, was signed prior to this season on a one-year deal for a reported $7 million. He had 45 saves in 2015 with St. Louis.
But this year he did not retire a batter in his first five outings.
