Brewers, Braves have hurlers back from injury, suspension

Two pitchers sidelined for different reasons will square off when the visiting Milwaukee Brewers play the Atlanta Braves on Saturday.

Atlanta will send right-hander Kevin Gausman (2-3, 4.50) against Milwaukee right-hander Chase Anderson (2-0, 3.20) in the second game of a three-game series. The Braves won the series opener 12-8 on Friday.

Gausman is making his first start since serving a five-game suspension for throwing at Miami pitcher Jose Urena last month. Gausman was apparently retaliating for Urena's plunking of then-rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. last season.
