Following a back and forth slugfest against the Twins that resulted in a 10-7 loss, the Braves will look to get back to .500 for the Spring in a Wednesday showdown against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Jesse Chavez will get the start on the mound for the Braves while the Rays will go with Shane McClanahan. The Braves lineup will feature the majority of their starters as Olsen, Harris II, and Acuna Jr. will look to keep their bats hot in the Spring while Austin Riley is still searching for his first hit. Travis d’Arnaud will also see his first action for the Spring as he will get the start behind the plate.
