Antonio Senzatela will be coming off the DL (shoulder) to take on Atlanta.
In his last appearance he put in a quality start, but got the no-decision in a 2-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.
He went six innings giving up five hits and one earned run while he struck out five and walked two.
In 47.1 innings of work this season, Senzatela owns a mediocre 7.04 K/9, a decent 3.23 BB/9, an excellent 0.57 HR/9, and a weak 66.3% LOB%.
The end-result is an inflated 4.56 ERA while he owns a more representable 3.69 FIP.
Colorado has played solid baseball in the past week winning five of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .221/.284/.379 to go with 14 extra-base hits and 23 RBI.
Mike Foltynewicz pitched a gem in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start while picking up his 10th win of the season in a 6-1 victory over the Miami Marlins.
He went eight innings giving up five hits and one earned run while he struck out seven and walked three.
In 132.0 innings of work this season, the ace owns an excellent 10.36 K/9, a slightly high 3.68 BB/9, a solid 0.95 HR/9, and an excellent 79.6% LOB%.
The end-result is an elite 2.86 ERA and a higher, but still respectable 3.53 FIP.
Atlanta continues to play solid baseball in the past week winning six of their eight contests.
During that span their lineup has been scorching hot as they are slashing .305./.360/.543 to go with 36 extra-base hits and 52 RBI.
