Fox Sports will continue to report live from the MLB All-Star Game and MLB Network will broadcast the event on Sunday, Jan. 31, with two more teams slated to be announced during the event: the Milwaukee Brewers and the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Braves will join the New York Mets, New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Angels in a stacked rotation of talent.
They have a top-three pick in the 2018 draft and a chance to take a top prospect in the second round of the draft.
The Braves are set to have their starting pitchers in place through Tuesday and their starting catchers through Tuesday, which means that, barring some unforeseen injury, the starters will be ready for the game on Tuesday.
“We’re very excited for what’s going to happen,” Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said in a radio interview with WXIA-TV.
“We’re going to get all the information.
The catchers are going to be out there, the pitchers are going on Monday and we’re going into the game with our starting pitching and our starting catcher.”
With that said, the Braves will have to adjust to playing against a very good team, and that might be why they will need to play with more intensity.
