WASHINGTON (AP) -- Braves right-hander John Smoltz threw 83
pitches over five innings against minor leaguers in Florida today,
and is on track to make his regular-season debut next weekend.
Braves general manager Frank Wren said before tonight's season
opener against the Washington Nationals that he got a report that
Smoltz threw the ball well and felt great. Smoltz is beginning the season on the 15-day disabled list because of shoulder tightness. He's slated to start next Sunday against the New York Mets.
