UPDATE - Ozzie Albies has been scratched from Wednesday’s lineup due to neck stiffness. Ehire Adrianza will play second and bat second in his place.


Fresh off their first off day of the spring, the Atlanta Braves will return to action Tuesday when they host the Pittsburgh Pirates at CoolToday Park. Drew Smyly will make his second appearance of the spring for the Braves with Bryse Wilson scheduled to follow. Lefty Stephen Brault will be on the mound for the Pirates.

The Braves will roll out most of their regulars on Tuesday with Ronald Acuna Jr. getting the start in center field. Abraham Almonte will get the start in right field with Jason Kipnis also in the lineup at DH.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. ET. No TV or streaming option again but you can follow along on the radio at WFOM 1230 or via the MLB app.
