Braves Vs. Astros: Atlanta Starts Week 2 Of Spring Training Monday Afternoon

It's been a less than stellar, less than solid go of things for the 2012 Atlanta Braves in Spring Training, but hey - it's March for a reason. The Braves will start a weeklong slate of games against Houston today at 1:05 p.m. ET with this just-announced, Chipper Jones free lineup:

The Braves were outscored 20-3 in two games against Detroit over the weekend, so they'll be looking to improve minor areas of concern (like hitting the ball and pitching ball, namely) in games against the Astros, National and Tigers again before a split-squad Thursday against the Yankees and Mets, and a Saturday afternoon game against the Yankees.
