Braves adjust rotation for series at Mets

ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta
Braves have changed their rotation for their upcoming series at the
Mets after they had to use starter Kris Medlen in relief during Saturday
night's 15-inning loss to the Nationals.

Medlen had been
scheduled for Tuesday's opening game in New York. Instead, Brandon
Beachy will move up one day to start on Tuesday. Alex Wood also moves up
one day for Wednesday's start.

Due to an off day on Monday, the starters will be pitching on their normal five days' rest.

Paul Maholm, on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised left wrist,
said Sunday he's ready to return after allowing four hits and one run in
five 2-3 innings in a rehab start for Class A Rome on Saturday.
