Fredi Gonzalez has juggled his lineup for Wednesday night's game against the Miami Marlins, giving Michael Bourn his first day off this season.
With the Braves in the middle of a stretch when they play 33 games in 34 days, Gonzalez says he chose Wednesday to give Bourn and third baseman Chipper Jones a break. Juan Francisco is starting at third base.
Jason Heyward is making his first career start in centerfield, moving from his normal spot in right field. Matt Diaz is in right field.
Rookie shortstop Tyler Pastornicky, who normally bats eighth, is filling in for Bourn as the leadoff hitter.
Freddie Freeman is back in the lineup at first base after missing one game with a scratched right eye.
