Braves swap starters after Tuesday rain

Riverwalk Stadium gets its first look at the top prospect in the minor leagues when the Biscuits host the Mississippi Braves tonight.

Outfielder Jason Heyward has a .405 average with 24 RBIs and 26 runs scored in 32 games with Mississippi. He's no longer a teenager having turned 20 on Sunday.

Due to a rainout Tuesday at Huntsville, Mississippi has adjusted its rotation for the series with the Biscuits. Right-hander Ryne Reynoso (6-7, 3.19 ERA) will start tonight's opener and lefty Scott Diamond, who was supposed to pitch tonight, will throw Thursday.
