Phillies to go with Arrieta in series opener vs. Braves

The Philadelphia Phillies took advantage of Friday's postponement to realign their starting rotation for the four-game series against the visiting Atlanta Braves.

The Phillies opted to keep Jake Arrieta as Saturday's starter and push Vince Velasquez, Friday's scheduled starter, to pitch one game of Sunday's doubleheader. That means Arrieta (0-1, 5.40 ERA) will face Atlanta's Kyle Wright (0-1, 7.50), a former first-round draft choice the club hopes can nail down a spot in the team's unsettled rotation, in the series opener.

Otherwise Friday's rainout was not good news for Philadelphia. The Phillies have already played one doubleheader due to weather or COVID-19 concerns and now have six more.
