Marlins Vs. Braves, Spring Training: Reported Opening Day Lineup In Place Against Marlins

The Atlanta Braves host the Florida Marlins at 1:05 in Lake Buena Vista.

Braves Lineup:

1. Martin Prado, LF

2. Nate McLouth, CF

3. Chipper Jones, 3B

4. Brian McCann, C

5. Dan Uggla, 2B

6. Jason Heyward, RF

7. Alex Gonzalez, SS

8. Freddie Freeman, 1B

9. Tim Hudson, SP

If there was ever an Opening Day lineup, this is it. By all accounts, and by Fredi Gonzalez's own quotes, this is the lineup he intends to use in Washington on March 31. Of course, we already know Derek Lowe will be on the mound that day, but the regulars seem to be in place today.

This could provide a good indication of the other spots still open. Whoever is used behind the regulars today could be the sign of who gets the fourth outfielder and utility infielder nods. It's worth watching, in any case.

The Braves will oppose Ricky Nolasco for the first few innings. Logan Morrison and Gaby Sanchez are in the lineup for the Marlins. No Hanley Ramirez.
