Gonzalez didn't go into specifics regarding the length of the outings; but like most MLB teams playing in February, starting pitchers rarely go more than two innings in their first go-round of Grapefruit League action.
Last year, the Braves went 10-18 overall in spring training, taking 13th place out of 15 teams, finishing ahead of the Mets and Pirates.
Of the 28 Grapefruit games, Atlanta scored 125 total runs, for a per-outing average of 4.7 runs.
However, the pitching and defense surrendered 163 total runs, for a per-outing average of 5.82 runs.
