The 33-year-old right-hander allowed three singles in the first inning and then retired 10 of the last 13 batters he faced.

Chris Russin got 5 SO's in 2 innings. He had a real good 2017 but it seems like pitching for Colorado eventually messes pitchers up, and he had a lot of problems the last 2 years. Maybe he can make a comeback this year with the Braves as a lefty reliever.

MLB.com has both Dansby Swanson and Austin Riley as 2 of their top 10 breakout hitters for 2020. Sounds good to me!

It's way too early to come to a conclusion, but a good sign that both Riley and Camargo are hitting well - OPSing right around 1.030.

Folty with a very good performance, after being shaky in previous ST starts. 3.2 IP 1 H 0 R 0 ER 2 BB 6 Ks



Rays, Braves finish in 1-1 tie.

Yes!
I'm thankful we have the two as options and I feel confident.

Nice pitching effort today with no run support. Yanks win 1-0

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Major League Baseball is expected to suspend spring training beginning Friday.

The writing has been on the wall since Wednesday night, when the NBA suspended operations following Rudy Gobert's positive coronavirus diagnosis. Major League Soccer and multiple NCAA conferences have followed with similar announcements on Thursday. There's little hope that the MLB regular season will begin on time, given that Opening Day is just two weeks away. Look for more details soon.

It's just amazing to see the chain of events from Rudy Gobert testing positive. So many things have closed down today. Even the county school system where I live. Man, I can't believe there won't be March Madness. This is a crazy time. Hopefully, they come up with a good vaccine quickly, and we can return to normalcy. But things will likely get worse before they get better. We'll get through it.

Freddie Freeman makes donation with all 30 MLB teams


On Tuesday all 30 Major League teams donated $1 million to assist workers impacted by the COVID-19 virus.
