Braves Vs. Phillies And Tigers, Spring Training: Brandon Beachy Starts In Disney Against Tigers

The Braves host the Tigers at 6:05 in Lake Buena Vista in the second game of the split-squad day.

Braves Lineup vs. Tigers:

1. Alex Gonzalez, SS

2. Jason Heyward, RF

3. Chipper Jones, 3B

4. Dan Uggla, 2B

5. Eric Hinske, 1B

6. David Ross, C

7. Joe Mather, LF

8. Matt Young, CF

9. Brandon Beachy, SP

Most of the regulars are getting the senior treatment by staying home to play the Tigers at Disney. The highlights for this lineup are Young and Mather in the outfield. The Braves are going all out with the fringe players in the final days of spring camp, and Young is getting regular reps now in center field.

Heyward in the second spot is quite refreshing, even if it doesn't mean anything. Just thought I'd mention that.

Beachy is getting his first start since being named the fifth starter in the rotation. Mike Minor's start was pushed back to Monday.
