Braves adjust rotation for playoff push
Mike & Mike in the Morning
ESPN MLB insider Jayson Stark talks about problems with the Atlanta Braves' rotation right now. Plus, who will step up for the New York Yankees?
The Braves needed to adjust their rotation because Jair Jurrjens is still slowed by a sore right knee.
The Braves took a half-game lead over San Diego for the wild card with a 2-1 win against the Marlins in 11 innings. The Padres lost 1-0 to the Chicago Cubs.
Manager Bobby Cox says he plans to start Hudson on Tuesday against the Marlins, followed by Lowe on Wednesday.
Jurrjens said a cortisone shot on Saturday helped only a little. He says he may have a second MRI exam if the knee doesn't improve. The first test showed a slight tear.
