  • Braves 2015 Spring Training Thread

    Think we need one, plus mini-recaps!


    W - Jon Velasquez (1-0, 0.00)
    L - Matt Capps (0-1, 18.00)
    HR - Johnny Monell (1)

    GOOD DAY: Eric Young, Jr. walked twice, stole a base and scored a run. Chien-Ming Wang pitched around three hits for two scoreless innings and struck out three batters. Jace Peterson had a double and walked twice.

    BAD DAY: Matt Capps and Jose Veras combined to allow seven of the Mets' eight runs on the day. Zoilo Almonte, Alberto Callaspo and Kelly Johnson all pulled 0-fers.

    W - Jason Hursh (1-0, 9.00)
    L - Alex Wilson (0-1, 9.00)
    S - Sugar Ray Marimon (1, 0.00)

    GOOD DAY: Phil Gosselin got a two-run single to open the scoring and John Buck had a two-run double and two walks. Teheran was decent with the run allowed a little fluky, and Eric Stults pitched around some hits for two shutout innings.

    BAD DAY: Reliever Jason Hursh got smacked around a little a coughed up the Braves' 4-2 lead over two innings. Though the Braves had two DPs, they also were charged with four errors.

      W - Taylor Hill (1-0, 0.00)
      L - Arodys Vizcaino (0-1, 18.00)
      S - Manny Delcarmen (1, 0.00)
      HR - WAS - Tyler Moore (1)
      ATL - Pedro Ciriaco (1)
      Freddie Freeman (1)

      GOOD DAY: The Braves offense generally played like the team hopes they do in the regular season: lots of hits with the home runs thrown in as a bonus. Tyrell Jenkins finished the game with two scorless frames. Jace Peterson, Freddie Freeman, Jonny Gomes and Zoilo Almonte all had two hits. Pedro Ciriaco had three.

      BAD DAY: Juan Jaime (three walks and a triple, 4 ER) and Arodys Vizcaino (two walks, two earned runs allowed) didn't do themselves any favors with poor outings that could hurt their chances of making the team later.

        W - Jacob deGrom (1-0, 3.00)
        L - Manny Banuelos (0-1, 9.00)
        S - Erik Goeddel (1, 0.00)
        HR - None

        GOOD DAY: Sugar Ray Marimon had two scoreless innings and Jose Veras added one for his first runless slate. Eric Young, Jr. drove in the only run and had a good defensive play.

        BAD DAY: Manny Banuelos allowed two runs in his day of work, one unearned, thanks to an error. Jose Peraza went hitless in four ABs and is still 0-for-the spring.

            ATLANTA 2, HOUSTON (SS) 2, 10 INN.

            HR - None

            GOOD DAY: Jace Peterson and Eury Perez had two hits each. A. J. Pierzynski had an RBI and a walk. Nine Braves pitchers combined to hold the Astros hitless.

            BAD DAY: Those same pitchers also issued nine walks in total and Mauricio Cabrera was victimized by his three walks and hit batsman for two runs via groundouts.

              ATLANTA 2, WASHINGTON 1

              W - Wandy Rodriguez (1-0, 2.25)
              L - Tanner Roark (0-1, 15.00)
              S - Jake Brigham (1, 9.00)

              HR - Eric Young, Jr. (1)

              GOOD DAY: Wandy Rodriguez and Chien-Ming Wang both pitched three scoreless innings and Young hit his first homer of the spring. Daniel Castro had three hits and Christian Bethancourt had two.

              BAD DAY: Jose Peraza continued his hitless streak, and Kelly Johnson and John Buck both went 0-4. If Lerud's double hadn't gone over the wall, Jake Brigham would have blown the save.

                Would you agree that Young looks to be the early favorite to be the opening day center fielder?

                  I think so. He hasn't necessarily hit well, but he's getting on base.

                    GOOD DAY: Both Teheran and Eric Stults had decent outings, allowing just one run in three innings each. Freddie Freeman hit his second homer and Mallex Smith redeemed his early error with three hits and a stolen base.

                      Yeah, Young certainly looks like he has the inside track for the starting center field job for a bit. Not necessarily the leadoff hitter: that COULD go to Jace Peterson if he continues hitting like he is in spring. Let's keep an eye on that.

                        When we got Peterson I didn't know much about him, but after I researched him, I was impressed by what I read. I've been looking forward to watching him play and seeing him progress.
