If tonight’s line-up is an indication of things to come the Braves will have the worst platoon in baseball: Jace Peterson and Gordon Beckham. Clearly nothing is standing in the way of Ozzie or Dansby.
A.J. Pierzynski, whose sudden blindness has cost the Braves two games, is also on the bench. I’m not bullish on much this year but do think Matt Wisler is going to settle in as an effective middle-of-the-rotation type.
Inciarte 8, Aybar 6, Freeman 3, Garcia 5, Markakis 9, Olivera 7, Flowers 2, Beckham 4, Wisler 1
