The Atlanta Braves will be squaring off against their divisional rival New York Mets at Citi Field.

Braves manager Brian Snitker removed Swanson as a precaution. Paul Sewald took the loss, falling to 0-2 this season after giving up three runs in three innings of relief.

After losing Ervin Santana to the Minnesota Twins after the 2014 season, the Atlanta Braves received a compensatory pick, #28 overall in the 2015 draft, that they used on Canadian high school right-hander Mike Soroka.

Cespedes, 32, is hitting.233 with six homers and 25 RBIs. The over has cashed in three of those games, compared to four that went under. Cueto leads the majors with a 0.84 ERA and is 3-0 with 26 strikeouts in 32 innings over five starts.

Newcomb didn't factor into the decision Thursday, when he allowed four runs on five hits over six innings as the Braves beat the Cincinnati Reds, 7-4. He retired the final 14 batters he faced following a one-out walk to Asdrubal Cabrera in the third inning. The Tuesday night lineup marked the first time in nearly 40 years one team started the three youngest players in the game.

Vargas is going to be put in a tough position after his bad debut with NY.

The Braves are 11-5 in their last 16 games in NY and have won five of their last six games overall, including five of six on the road. Vargas gave up nine runs in his season debut Saturday against San Diego after missing the start of the season with a fracture in his right hand. The 26-year-old rookie has a 0.96 ERA in 14 games this year. It was the second time the team has lost with Teheran starting this season (4-2).

Right-handed starter Erasmo Ramirez and righty reliever Dan Altavilla have been put on the 10-day disabled list by the Mariners.
