Its finally here! Camp opens Thursday when pitchers and catchers report.

Snitker said Soroka was able to participate in drills today. He fielded comebacks, bunted and of course threw a side session. Fielding and running are his only remaining hurdles.

Nick Markakis has announced his retirement. Kakes said he knew after the NLCS that he would never play again. Just waited to announce his decision. Kakes had 2,971 ABs as a Brave. He hit .283/.357/.40

Freeman will join the team tomorrow as he clears all covid protocols.

New Spring rules allow pitchers to be used more than once. You could bring in a RP to practice getting a key final out and then insert your SP back into the game the next inning.

Managers of the team on defense also have the ability to end an inning before the 3rd out. If 20 pitches have been thrown and an AB is not currently in progress you can choose to end the inning.

These new rules are all to help with the smaller amount of bodies in camp. The minor league teams aren't allowed this year due to covid.

First game of 2021 ends in a 9-7 loss. AAA vet Sean Kazmar launched a 2 run HR in the top of the 7th  to tie it at 7. Rays got their own 2 run HR in the bottom of the 7th to win it. Edwards Jr and Davidson had shutout innings, Dansby had an RBI single and Riley had 2 hits. Drew Waters walked, stole 2B and scored. 


Game 2 tomorrow at 1:05 at Red Sox. Ynoa vs Richards on MLB Network.
