The 27-year-old Redmond was 6-4 with a 3.20 in 13 starts for Gwinnett. This is his first promotion to the major leagues.

Meanwhile, first baseman Freddie Freeman is missing his fourth straight start but said his sore left hand has improved “a lot.” He has been unable to properly grip the bat due to a swollen knuckle on his left index finger.

Martin Prado is making his second start of the season at first base.

Third baseman Chipper Jones, who was held out with swelling in his left knee on Saturday night, is starting. Left-hander Eric O’Flaherty, who has had a sore elbow, is again available in the bullpen.
