Programming note: former Marshall star and current Atlanta Braves pitcher Aaron Blair will make his Major League Baseball debut Sunday afternoon against the New York Mets.

Blair, 23, has been dominating this season, with a 3-0 record and 1.42 ERA in three starts. He has 22 strikeouts against five walks in 19 innings.

Blair, a 2013 pick of the Arizona Diamondbacks, was part of a blockbuster that included the Braves sending All-Star right-hander Shelby Miller and prospect Gabe Speier to the Diamondbacks for Ender Inciarte, Dansby Swanson and Blair.

Blair entered this season as the No. 40 prospect on Baseball America’s top 100 list.
