Dream11 Fantasy Baseball: Nationals at Braves

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Baseball series.

Washington Nationals (12-23) at Atlanta Braves (22-14)

Friday, September 4th, 4:10 PM EDT

Projected Starters

RHP Austin Voth (0-4, 7.99 ERA) vs LHP Tommy Milone (1-4, 5.68 ERA)

Game Preview

The Nationals are the reigning MLB World Series champions, but they are not expected to reach the postseason in 2020 – even with an expanded 16-team playoff format – given their poor record to date. The Braves are a completely different story and have performed according to expectations, and they lead the NL East while sitting comfortably eight games above the .500 threshold. Atlanta also has the edge in the pitching matchup with lefty Tommy Milone, who delivered a poor effort in his Braves debut after being acquired from the Baltimore Orioles, against Austin Voth, who owns an ERA of nearly 8.00 as he is yet to win a game after seven straight starts. Voth lasted just two innings in his previous outing.

Injuries

Atlanta Braves

Ronald Acuna - Day-To-Day - Hamstring

9/2 1:13 PM EST - Acuna (hamstring) is feeling good despite being out of the lineup Wednesday and is expected to return Friday against the Nationals, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports. Acuna sits for the third straight day with right hamstring tightness Wednesday, but it appears as though he's essentially over the issue. He went through a full workout Tuesday without issues, but sitting Wednesday buys him two extra days to heal, as the Braves have a scheduled off day Thursday.
