Kyle Wright will start bidding when the Braves shine in the season opener of the two grapefruit league games at Charlotte Sports Park on Sunday afternoon.
Wright plans to start and roll two rounds for the Braves. They will also send Sean Newcomb, Grant Dayton, and Carl Edwards Jr. Carl Edwards), Chad Sobotka (Chad Sobotka) and Patrick Weigel (Patrick Weigel) played.
According to the 2021 spring training agreement, the spring match will be scheduled for 7 rounds on March 13, but with the mutual consent of the managers of both sides, the spring match will be shortened to 5 rounds or extended to 9 rounds. Games occurring after March 1
Snitke also plans to play a road game with the Red Sox on Monday, and he expects that he will only play half of his expected regular players in the grapefruit league opener.
“I think we will disperse it,” Snitker said. “We have a lot of people we want to meet.”
The Braves’ rotation plan will depend on the decision made by Mike Soroka in the coming weeks. Although the team did not rule out the possibility that Soroka will be ready at the beginning of the regular season, it can be expected that he will have more time to recover from a torn right Achilles tendon.
If Soroka does indeed start the season on the injury list, then Wright and Bryce Wilson will be the best candidates for the vacant rotation.
In the past two seasons, Wright has been in Atlanta’s opening day lineup. But the 25-year-old right-handed man posted a 6.59 ERA, and so far has only 12 career starts. When he ended the game with three strong starts in the regular season last year, and then dropped six scoreless innings in the third game of the National League Division Series against the Marlins, he showed certainty. hope.
The arrival of Freeman
Freddie Freeman spent a lot of time this week caring for his wife Chelsea, who gave birth to the couple’s third son last weekend. The incumbent NL MVP is expected to arrive in Florida on Friday night and complete his intake test on Saturday. This allowed him to start working out with Braves teammates on Monday.
Even if Freeman missed the first week of the entire Grapefruit League season, he still has more than three weeks to prepare for the opening day.
Snitek said: “It’s not a big deal at all.” “As you remember, he is usually [the Grapefruit League season] Then it became boring for 10 days, and then went back again. I am not worried at all. “
Other spring training agreements
For the spring training game before March 13, as long as more than 20 pitches are completed in a half inning and no game is played, the defensive manager can choose to end a game before the third inning. This will end the usual practice of requiring unprepared minor league pitchers to enter suddenly after the pitcher exceeds the target number of pitches in an inning.
The minimum three-strike rule will take effect in every game on or after March 14.
Managers can also choose to re-enter pitchers throughout spring training. This will allow managers to choose to use shock absorbers in certain situations to end a game, and then possibly bring their starter back to start the next game.
