Twins Vs. Braves, Spring Training: Braves Return To Atlanta For Final Two Spring Games

The Atlanta Braves had their first game at Turner Field rained out Monday, but they return to the Ted Tuesday night to host the Minnesota Twins, starting at 7:05.

Braves Lineup:
1. Martin Prado, LF
2. Nate McLouth, CF
3. Chipper Jones, 3B
4. Brian McCann, DH
5. Dan Uggla, 2B
6. Jason Heyward, RF
7. Alex Gonzalez, SS
8. Freddie Freeman, 1B
9. David Ross, C
Cristhian Martinez, SP

The Braves will be throwing every reliever on the roster out on the mound today, starting with the final bullpen guy, Martinez.

This appears to be the starting lineup, with the exception of McCann at designated hitter and Ross at catcher. I get the feeling Freeman won't be hitting eighth for long if Gonzalez is ahead of him. I get the feeling Heyward is being wasted. I also get the feeling I don't need to say anything else about McLouth in the second spot.

The Twins are sending Nick Blackburn to the mound to start.
