ATLANTA (AP) -- The Atlanta Braves have changed their rotation for their upcoming series at the Mets after they had to use starter Kris Medlen in relief during Saturday night's 15-inning loss to the Nationals.

Medlen had been scheduled for Tuesday's opening game in New York. Instead, Brandon Beachy will move up one day to start on Tuesday. Alex Wood also moves up one day for Wednesday's start.

Due to an off day on Monday, the starters will be pitching on their normal five days' rest.

Left-hander Paul Maholm, on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised left wrist, said Sunday he's ready to return after allowing four hits and one run in 5 2-3 innings in a rehab start for Class A Rome Saturday.
