Braves Spring Training Game 15

Weird and unnatural.

Let's see if I get this right today ... yes, today's 1:05pm Braves game against the Yankees is televised. The lineup:

  1. Martin Prado, LF
  2. Brooks Conrad, 2B
  3. Chipper Jones, DH
  4. Brian McCann, C
  5. Jason Heyward, RF
  6. Ed Lucas, 3B
  7. Freddie Freeman, 1B
  8. Jordan Schafer, CF
  9. Diory Hernandez, SS

On the mound to start the game is Tommy Hanson. He'll be followed by the spring debut of Kenshin Kawakami, then Eric O'Flaherty, Craig Kimbrel, and Scott Proctor.

KK has done well against the Yanks in the past, and it seems like a bit of a showcase that the Braves are throwing him against a team who has two rotation spots open (though the internal candidates they have seem to be doing okay).

The Braves will be seeing a lot of ex-Braves in this game, as Andruw Jones and Mark Teixeira are in the lineup, and Rafael Soriano is scheduled to pitch in relief.
