Braves Vs. Nationals: Mike Minor Will Be Skipped After Rainout

The Braves decided not to push everyone back in the rotation after Friday's rainout, according to the club:

So Mike Minor will be skipped in the rotation and Brandon Beachy will pitch on Saturday, as was originally scheduled. It appears the Nationals will bump everyone back a day, so Atlanta unfortunately will still have to face Washington ace Stephen Strasburg.

Strasburg's last start came against the Braves on May 26, when he allowed four earned runs over five innings, but recorded the win. Beachy's last start came against Washington on May 27, when he allowed three runs (one earned) in five innings, picking up the loss.
