Braves Spring Training Game 11

The Braves take on the Marlins today, here's the lineup:

  1. Martin Prado, 3B
  2. Nate McLouth, CF
  3. Jason Heyward, RF
  4. Brian McCann, C
  5. Eric Hinske, LF
  6. Freddie Freeman, 1B
  7. Ed Lucas, 2B
  8. Diory Hernandez, SS
  9. Tim Hudson, P

Of course Hudson starts, and he'll be followed by Eric O'Flaherty, Cory Gearrin, Anthony Varvaro, Stephen Marek, and Juan Abreu. This is already the fifth game for Varvaro, Marek, and Abreu. For three guys on the bubble of making the bullpen, they're really getting them a lot of work.

This will be Lucas' third start of the spring, and the third different position he's started at. His previous two starts were at third base and shortstop. He's also played two innings of outfield. It certainly looks like they want him to fill Omar Infante's shoes this year, and they're giving him the opportunity to do so. By the way, our old pal Omar is hitting .300 this spring and has only played second base (where he's "competing" with Joe Thurston).
