Kolby Allard making big league debut on Tuesday

The Braves will call up left handed pitcher Kolby Allard for his big league debut on Tuesday.

Speculation began this weekend that the Braves would call up the 20-year-old for a start against the Marlins after he was scratched for his scheduled outing for Triple-A Gwinnett.

In his last Triple-A start, Allard threw 103 pitches in give innings allowing two runs on three hits while walking two and striking out six on July 22.

For the season Allaord, the Braves No. 8 ranked prospect and the 93rd overall according to MLB Pipeline, holds a 2.80 ERA in 109 1/3 innings with 87 srike outs and 33 walks.

Allard was a first round pick of the Braves in 2015. The addition of Allard figures to give the Braves rotation an additional day of rest as they currently are playing 31 games in 32 days. On Sunday Sean Newcomb threw 134 pitches as he narrowly missed a no-hitter. That total was the most since 2013.
