Astros Vs. Braves Lineup Adjustment: Ben Francisco Will Play In RF, Steve Pearce Out

There has been an adjustment to the Astros lineup in their series opener against the Braves on Friday at Turner Field. Instead of Steve Pearce, Houston will have Ben Francisco in right field and batting in the same spot, according to Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle.

Francisco has played in 11 games for the Astros since being traded in July from the Toronto Blue Jays. In his 29 at-bats as an Astro, Francisco is hitting .276 and has struck out seven times while walking just once.
