Two teams who will be auditioning their players off here over the next couple weeks continue their weekend series on Friday night.
The Atlanta Braves and Colorado Rockies are both buried in the National League and will play this one in front of many scouts.
The Braves had zero expectations to live up to heading into this season.
Picked by almost every media outlet to finish last, the Braves haven’t let them down as they sit 23.5 games back in the NL East and 29 games under the .500 mark.
Atlanta has done just about everything wrong, but there have been a few bright spots. Freddie Freeman in particular on offense has flourished.
On the mound, it’s been Julio Teheran who has been the silver lining. Many scout will be in Colorado on Thursday to see him throw, as he tries to improve on his 3-8 record.
The record is far from his fault. On the season, Teheran has compiled a low ERA of only 2.79.
Teheran faced Colorado in his last start and went 7.0 scoreless innings, but received a ND in the process. It’s been that kind of year for him, as his offense has yet to help him out.
A lot of scouts will be on hand here for the Rockies as well.
There are plenty of names being thrown around about teams contacting Colorado. One in particular is Carlos Gonzalez. The OF is hitting .317 with 19 homeruns and 56 runs batted in.
The confines of Coors Field could have something to do with those numbers as well. As a team, Colorado is averaging 6.16 runs runs per home game.
However, the pitching has felt the effects as well. As a staff, the Rockies have conceded nearly 7 runs per home game.
They send out RH Jon Gray, who is 5-4 on the season.
Gray was on the other end of that Teheran start and like his counterpart, he threw 7.0 scoreless in a ND.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
After watching the matchup between these two starters last week, the Under may make the most sense.
However, backing an Under at Coors Field is tough. Teheran has been the better of the two this season and with this being in the thin air of Colorado, maybe his offense can give him some support.

Two bad teams here. The plus money way with the better pitcher is the most valuable of options here.
