The Atlanta Braves are back at CoolToday Park Wednesday for an exhibition matchup against the Dominican Republic’s World Baseball Classic team. Rookie left-hander Dylan Dodd will get the start for the Braves while the Dominican Republic will go with right-hander Cristian Javier.
Atlanta will roll out a mostly “B” team lineup for exhibition with the exception of Travis d’Arnaud who will catch and bat third. Eli White, who has had a nice spring so far, will hit fifth and play right field. Joe Jimenez and Raisel Iglesias are also scheduled to pitch today for Atlanta.
