In place of Mike Foltynewicz, who was DFA’d by the Braves on Monday after just one start, Touki Toussaint will start tomorrow — Brian Snitker told the media just minutes ago.
Toussaint will start tomorrow's game.

If you don’t remember, Toussaint relieved Mike Foltynewicz on Monday and didn’t look so good himself either, giving up six earned runs in just 2.2 innings. This may serve as Toussaint’s final chance this year. The Braves don’t have much time for their pitchers to figure things out, and Toussaint was ineffective last year as well, recording a 5.42 ERA in 41.2 innings. In a week, all teams will have to trim down their rosters to 28 men. If Toussaint pitches poorly again, he could find himself in Gwinnett camp for the rest of the year.
