Atlanta Braves Change Starting Rotation

The Atlanta Braves decided to bring John Smoltz back from the disabled list tomorrow to face Johan Santana in the finale of the two-game series.

This is the second good pitching matchup of the short series.

Smoltz has been bothered by soreness in his 40-year-old shoulder. He’ll be 41 on May 15. Tom Glavine will pitch in Denver now on Monday night.

I have to wonder if this has anything to do with Glavine being a former Met. He’s been around long enough not to be bothered by something like that. Plus, he’s had the experience of facing the Braves with the Mets.

It is curious though that the Braves choose to make the change at the last minute like this.
