Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports Atlanta Braves news and notes from Saturday Michael Harris looked very ready for the season on Saturday, as he homered and doubled. Spencer Strider looked good as well, with his usual strikeout-heavy results through two innings, featuring his new breaking ball that he says he will take into the season.

Orlando Arcia doesn’t seem likely to be a long term solution at shortstop and isn’t particularly young, but Atlanta hasn’t really brought in any true compet ..read more

Battery Power TV: It’s ‘World Series or bust” as Atlanta Braves open Spring Training
Battery Power

Photo by Matthew Grimes Jr./Atlanta Braves The Atlanta Braves opened Spring Training with one goal, winning the World Series. In fact, it’s World Series or bust. As that phrase echoed around the early days of camp, the team appeared focused on doing the work to turn that goal into a reality. How does newcomer Chris Sale fit into that equation? Elsewhere, Atlanta does not have many position battles to speak of in camp this year, but the competition for the fifth starter’s spot should provide some intrigue.
