Spring Training Open Thread: Braves at Nats.

It's gonna be a weird game, as rain is expected. Tommy Hanson was supposed to start, but because of the rain he will pitch in a minor league game. In his place Scott Proctor will start, followed by Jesse Chavez, and then ??

Here is the lineup:

Nate McLouth, CF
Martin Prado, 2B
Chipper Jones, 3B
Matt Diaz, LF
Jason Heyward, RF
Omar Infante, SS
Eric Hinske, 1B
Clint Sammons, C
Joe Thurston, DH

...a real travel squad.

In another small roster move, Gregor Blanco was optioned to triple-A today.

Today's press notes have Kris Medlen starting tomorrow's game. Not sure why Tim Hudson wouldn't be starting.
