The Atlanta Braves will go for a series sweep on Thursday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks, who will be debuting their No. 1 prospect. Trevor Bauer is a hard-throwing righty with full command of four pitches, and he is regarded as a top-10 prospect across all of Major League Baseball.
It will be a huge night for the D-backs, but also all of baseball. Bauer has the potential to be a true ace on the mound, which there are fewer and fewer of in this day and age of the game.
For the Braves, Jair Jurrjens will look to build off a phenomenal start in Boston. Jurrjens was pounded early in the season, but he appeared to be healthy as he worked seven innings of one-run ball against the Red Sox last weekend.
First pitch from Turner Field is set for 7:10 p.m.
