Spring Training Open Thread 3/11: Braves vs. Phillies

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

While we will be spending most of this day pondering exactly what in the world is an "involved" ligament when it comes to Kris Medlen and whether or not there's something more to the tightness in Brandon Beachy's arm, there is still more Spring Training baseball to be played. The Braves will be hosting the Phillies today in a return fixture of yesterday's Grapefruit League tilt at Bright House Field in Clearwater. Julio Teheran will be taking the mound for the guys with the Tomahawks across their chests, and I'm sure that we're all hoping that he (along with all the other important keys to the team) can make it out of this one unscathed.
