The Grapefruit League season will continue for the Atlanta Braves Saturday when they make another trip to Fort Myers to take on the Boston Red Sox. Ian Anderson will be on the mound for the Braves and will be making his second appearance of the spring.
Anderson allowed three hits and struck out two over two scoreless innings on March 2. He then pitched in an intrasquad game after a rain out disrupted the team’s rotation. Left-hander Martin Perez is the scheduled starter for Boston.
Ronald Acuña Jr. returns to the lineup Saturday and will get the start in center field. William Contreras gets another start behind the plate and will be hitting seventh.
