  • Austin Riley – Braves

Austin Riley is the main man for the Braves at this moment, with Freddie Freeman leaving in the offseason and Acuna Jr. still out injured, he will look to dominate this Padres team who have lost 2 straight games.

  • Manny Machado – Padres

Manny will look to dominate this game against an Atlanta team who hasn’t hard the best of the start to their season yet, and in the absence of Tatis Jr. he is the leader of this team.
