How many days til Opening Day?
Talk among scouts that #Braves will listen on Venters. Braves, though, say they love depth in their bullpen, including 3 LHs with Avilan.

OK, so the Braves will listen on reliever Jonny Venters. With hard-throwing rookie Bruce Rondon struggling to throw strikes, the Tigers are shopping for a potential closer, and possibly using Rick Porcello as trade bait. The Braves' fifth starter right now is Julio Teheran, who was awful in Triple-A last year. The Braves have bullpen depth (although Eric O'Flaherty hasn't pitched yet this spring due to a strained groin). The Tigers have Drew Smyly ready to pitch in the rotation.
maybe I'm just forgetful but I can't remember a spring training where this many starters were constantly in every lineup
