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

William Contreras walks on 4 straight to score Albies and it's 2-0 Braves. And the inning is over because Richards threw over 20 pitches. WTH kind of **** is this?

Yeah idk about that rule but I guess it's best while rosters are limited. Just think it messes with situational hitting/pitching.

Managers have the option to force an inning over if there's been 20 pitches thrown. You can't do it mid AB but you can opt to do it before the next hitter. It is because of limited arms in camp

Don’t teams also have the option of bring in a RP for a batter or 2 and then they can go back to the previous pitcher.

Really liked what I saw from Ynoa.

  • Delivering the ball closer to the ear and more over-the-top. Seemed to have better control and more deception.
  • It also brings back his split-change, which I last saw in Danville/Elizabethton. Thought it was a potential plus pitch, but he abandoned it for a straight change. Got his first K with it.
  • Lost his released point early in the 2nd, but recovered quickly.

Only one outing, but he may have injected himself into the 5th-starter discussion.

And if not he should be a key piece of the bullpen. I know losing Greene, Melancon and O'Day was huge but I'm not worried about the pen. We've still got so many good options down there.
