Braves Spring Training

First live BP of spring was today. New pitching coach Chuck Hernandez likes to do it a little later than McDowell did. Dickey is only allowed to throw live BP to minor leaguers.

It's a common drill but it's usually two guys throwing short hops to each other. First time I've seen it done that close with a bat. I have seen a coach pull out a shopping cart (literally) full of baseballs, get 15 feet away, and proceed to hit short hoppers at full speed at a first baseman who had ole'd a couple of hard hit grounders. That was entertaining.

Right.

Jon Heyman says the Braves are in on Kelly Johnson. They're reluctant to do anything other than a minor league deal and other teams are reportedly in the mix. KJ could be in the mix for #4 OF with Bonifacio and Micah Johnson.
