ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Braves have moved Shelby Miller into Mike Foltynewicz's rotation spot for Monday night's game against the Miami Marlins.

Foltynewicz is suffering from fever and viral symptoms.

Miller (5-11) will try to snap an 18-start winless streak, the longest in a single season since the Braves moved to Atlanta in 1966. Jo-Jo Reyes went 18 starts without a win from June 18, 2008-May 13, 2009. Carl Morton has the longest franchise streak at 22 starts from Sept. 10, 1975-July 18, 1976.

Miller, a first-time All-Star in his first year with the Braves, has a 2.62 ERA that ranks eighth in the NL.

Foltynewicz (4-6) has a 5.71 ERA in his rookie season.
