This weekend’s slate includes outings in Port Charlotte, FL against the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday and in North Port versus the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday afternoon. Both are set for 1:05 pm.
The countdown continues to Opening Day – there are now 23 days until the Braves open their 2022 regular season on Thursday, April 7th at Truist Park in Atlanta versus the Cincinnati Reds.
And in other news from the Braves, the team has acquired first baseman Matt Olson, an Atlanta native, from the Oakland A’s in exchange for four prospects to include catcher Shea Langeliers and outfielder Cristian Pache. That marks the end of the Freddie Freeman era.
