Battery Power Podcast Episode 393: Two wins and an injury on opening weekend

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Washington Nationals Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves opened the 2023 MLB season this weekend, and the results were positive. Atlanta picked up a series win in the nation’s capital behind strong performances from key pieces and, even if things didn’t finish in perfect fashion on Sunday, it was a rock-solid start for a contending team.

Episode 393 of the Battery Power Podcast is here to break it all down, with Brad Rowland and Scott Coleman discussing the following:

  • Orlando Arcia is going to be around for a while on a long-term deal that is not all that common in MLB circles
  • Charlie Culberson back?!?
  • An update on Michael Soroka
  • Opening Day was kind to the Braves on the scoreboard but unkind with an injury to No. 1 starter Max Fried
  • Spencer Strider was dominant on Saturday, but Jared Shuster had a hiccup in the first inning on Sunday
  • The Braves will not finish 162-0 this season
  • Looking ahead to a pretty difficult week on paper against the Cardinals and Padres
  • Much, much more
