The setup is indicative of the new interleague schedule caused by the Houston Astros switching leagues and putting 15 clubs in each league.
Fortunately for Atlanta, they've drawn the disappointing Blue Jays, who have Jose Reyes on the disabled list as well as subpar starts to the season from R.A. Dickey, Mark Buehrle and Emilio Bonafacio. They currently sit dead last in the American League East at 9.5 games behind the New York Yankees.
This comes while the Braves have won eight of their last night games and have mostly met expectations. They are five games ahead of the Washington Nationals for first place in the National League East.
Monday, 7:07 on MLB Network: Braves RH Tim Hudson (4-3, 4.98 ERA) vs LH Mark Buehrle (1-3, 5.90 ERA)
Tuesday, 12:37 on SportSouth: LH Paul Maholm (6-4, 3.38 ERA) vs RH Brandon Morrow (2-3, 5.50 ERA)
