Max Fried will make his second start Grapefruit League start Sunday when the Atlanta Braves travel to Port Charlotte to take on the Tampa Bay Rays. Fried had a delayed start to the spring due to a possible COVID exposure, but was solid in his first outing allowing three hits and one run over four innings against the Red Sox. He struck out three and didn’t walk anyone. Fried is the odds on favorite at the moment to be Atlanta’s starter on Opening Day.
Lefty Ryan Yarbrough is Tampa’s scheduled starter on Sunday. He will be making his third appearance having allowed a total of three hits over 4 1/3 scoreless innings.
The Braves will roll out their regulars for Sunday’s game with the exception of Jake Lamb who will hit seventh and play third base.
