Braves rookie right-hander Bryce Elder will be at home in Texas when he starts the middle game of a three-game series against the Rangers. A fifth-round draft pick out of the University of Texas in 2020, Elder grew up in Decatur, Texas, which is only about an hour drive from Globe Life Field. Elder is 1-2 with a 4.30 ERA. He will make his fourth big league start Saturday. He grew up going to games at the old Rangers stadium across the street.
