David Ortiz was scratched Thursday with calf soreness.

It was a last-minute scratch, but it doesn't sound like something that will require a DL stint. He'll miss the final game against the Braves but should be able to play in the weekend series against the Rays. A.J. Pierzynski is at DH for Thursday with David Ross working behind the plate.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Shelby Miller will start Monday night for the Braves.

The scheduled starter in Foltynewicz is suffering from a cold so Miller will start in his place as Atlanta opens a series with the Marlins. The young righty who came over from St Louis this off season for Jason Heyward has been a hard luck pitcher all year with a 5-11 record despite his 2.62 ERA in 165 IP. If Miller is to get the win tonight that would be his first in 19 starts as he started the season 5-0. Analysis: Matt Selz

Mike Foltynewicz has been scratched from Monday's start due to a fever and viral symptoms.

A fever and viral symptoms are the cause of him missing his start Monday as Atlanta opens a series against Miami. The young righty has had a rough rookie campaign to this point posting a 4-6 record with a 5.71 ERA in 86 2/3 innings. He should be good to go for his next start later this week and Shelby Miller will start in his place Monday. Analysis: Matt Selz
