Ender Inciarte (hamstring) will be activated from the injured list Friday. This news comes with good timing, as Cristian Pache is headed to the IL after tweaking his hamstring on Thursday afternoon against the Blue Jays. Inciarte has been sidelined since the middle of April.

Milwaukee Brewers DFS Spin

Jackie Bradley Jr. went 0-for-4 and struck out twice Thursday against the Cardinals. Bradley was okay during the second half of April, but the first half of April and now the first half of May have been simply terrible for him offensively. He's in a 2-for-34 slump at the moment, leaving him at .165/.235/.298 for the year. He had 41 strikeouts and six RBI in 132 plate appearances. The Brewers might need to reduce his role if they're able to get Christian Yelich back into the lineup regularly.

Braves vs. Brewers Betting Prediction

The Braves are just 2-6 in their last eight trips to Milwaukee and are 2-5 in their last seven games coming off a loss. Atlanta was just swept at home by the Blue Jays and while X-rays on his left ankle were negative, Ronald Acuna Jr. was injured in the serie finale on Thursday. His availability for the start of the Milwaukee series is uncertain as of this writing. The Braves are also playing a Brewers team that, while dropping two of three to the Cardinals over the last three days, are 9-2 is 9-2 in its last 11 games after scoring two runs or less in its previous contest. The Brewers fell 2-0 to the Cardinals at home on Thursday.
