PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies are starting Cole Hamels, Roy Halladay and Roy Oswalt against the Braves this week.

The Braves are starting 24-year-old Brandon Beachy tonight.

Beachy, who will be making his big-league debut, will sub for Jair Jurrjens, who was scratched after testing his sore right knee in the bullpen this afternoon. Jurrjens hurt his knee during a bullpen session Friday in New York.

"His knee's still bothering him, and it's not worth chancing it," manager Bobby Cox said. "He wasn't smiling too much. He still felt [the knee] on every pitch."

Cox said that Jurrjens was sent to Atlanta for an MRI exam on the knee. If everything checks out, the Braves are hopeful that Jurrjens will be able to make his next start.

"Maybe missing one start, he'll be super starting the last two," Cox said.

Beachy was with the Braves instructional league team in Florida, but he last pitched in a game on Sept. 3 with Triple-A Gwinnett. He split this year between Gwinnett and Double-A Mississippi, going a combined 5-1 with a 1.73 ERA. He's quite a story, passed over in the draft after pitching at Indiana Wesleyan, signed out of a summer collegiate league for $20,000, then rising this year to become one of the Braves' top pitching prospects.

While pitching for Gwinnett, Beachy faced the Phillies' Lehigh Valley affiliate, allowing two runs on three hits in seven innings. The Phillies had video of that start playing on their clubhouse televisions this afternoon.

The Braves begin the series three games behind the Phillies in the National League East, and 2 1/2 games ahead of the Padres in the wild-card race.

The Braves got one piece of good news today, when an MRI exam on reliever Takashi Saito's right shoulder showed nothing but tendinitis. Cox said the Braves believe Saito, who left Friday's game in New York thinking his season could be over, may be ready to pitch as soon as Wednesday.

time to congratulate fillys on another triumph over the Braves. fillys really beat Braves down and have almost ended our hopes of playoffs, BUT we will never concede until there is no chance left!tommy ripper, i am on this thread, but CBS has barred me from game chat because of some snotty nosed kid like you from SD. but, i have been a Braves fan since 1947 and have been thru good, bad, and ugly. been to the top and bottom, but i will always be with Braves.  even when and if filly clinches, i will never sau good luck, as filly fans are most antagonistic, obnoxious in baseball.Dave6000000, good job of explaining NO-NO to those dimwits last nite, altho some never got real meaning.looks bleak for CHOPSTICKS in Oct. in HOTLANTA, but will still be there.GO BRAVESLaughing

So, bornphila goes trolling to another team's board talking trash then whines like he's got an infected gash when they torpedo him?  Grow a set and stop whining - you knew what you were in for.
