As the third week of Spring Training arrives, games are finally here. Atlanta is now 0-1-1 over its first few games, as they lost 7-0 to the Yankees on Sunday after a wild and crazy tie on Saturday. Today’s game should bring a bit of excitement as well, as Atlanta ace Max Fried will see his first action of the Spring against the Blue Jays.

Fried is looking to carry over the success of the career year be had in 2022, when he finished second in the NL in Cy Young Voting. Fried has established himself as one of the best southpaws and overall arms in the majors, and the Braves will once again look to lean on him in 2023 against the best MLB has to offer.

While there is no doubt Fried will be up for the challenge, a good start to the spring will be a fun development to see.
