Braves' Luiz Gohara: Dealing with groin strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gohara is a step behind the other pitchers as he recovers from a strained groin injury, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

There has not been a strict timetable set for Gohara as the club wants to see more progress out of the left-hander before setting a date for his first spring outing of the year. It was expected that Gohara would win a spot in the rotation coming out of camp, but this ailment casts a shred of doubt onto that possibility. Keep an eye on this situation throughout the spring as there should be an update on his status in the near future.

Braves' Danny Santana: In lineup against Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (quadriceps) will play left field and bat seventh for the club's Grapefruit League opener against the Mets on Friday.

Santana appears to be at full health heading into Atlanta's spring games after missing the last month and a half of the 2017 campaign with a left quadriceps strain. He will be competing for a spot in the outfield following a disappointing campaign split between Minnesota and Atlanta last season.

Braves' Rio Ruiz: Adding OF to repertoire?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz may get a look in the outfield during spring training, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The 23-year-old flashed some promise at the plate in the past, but struggles in the majors last season have him fighting for a roster spot this spring. As such, the Braves are experimenting a lot this spring to see if Ruiz can fill a reserve utility role until some of their top prospects are ready to take the reins. It remains to be seen how much outfield Ruiz will actually see this spring or if he'll even get any regular season innings there, but it's worth noting that the Braves are doing what they can to give him a fair shot at an active roster spot this spring.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Outside looking in for rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims is in the running for the Braves' final rotation spot, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

It seems like Julio Teheran, Mike Foltynewicz and Brandon McCarthy are locks to make the rotation, with Luis Gohara the favorite to swipe the fourth spot. This leaves just one spot remaining for either Sims, Sean Newcomb, Max Fried or Scott Kazmir (hip). Sims seems to be a bit of a long-shot for the role, mostly given the successes of Newcomb and Fried last season. That said, Sims' struggles in the majors certainly don't help his case. In 57.2 frames, he could only muster a 5.62 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP while striking out just 6.9 batters per nine. Sims would need to put together an outstanding spring to truly have a shot at overtaking the competition for the fifth rotation spot.

Braves' Brandon McCarthy: Heads into camp with rotation spot secure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy is considered to be a lock for the Braves' rotation this season, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

With a number of very young arms in Atlanta, the 34-year-old righty seems poised to be the veteran presence on the pitching staff. McCarthy has proven to be a huge injury risk, but he did produce a decent 3.98 ERA with a mere 0.5 HR/9 in 92.2 innings with the Dodgers last season. He will likely be afforded as many innings as his body can handle this season while acting as the No. 2 or 3 starter for the Braves.
