Atlanta Braves SP Tim Hudson will start the team's opening day game April 1 against the Philadelphia Phillies. He'll be followed in the rotation by SPs Paul Maholm, Kris Medlen, Mike Minor and Julio Teheran. Hudson hasn't started on opening day since 2008.
Fantasy Tip: Hudson's valuable traits are slowly declining, and his drop in velocity will have side effects. He's more suited for inclusion in NL only leagues as rotation depth.

Atlanta Braves SP Kris Medlen was hammered for nine earned runs and 14 hits in five innings in a Grapefruit League start Monday, March 18, against the Philadelphia Phillies and he still managed to get the win. "I'm not making excuses at all," Medlen said. "I got crushed. But I think we would pitch them a little bit different during the year. I felt like I had some 2-2 counts and some 1-1 counts where I would normally go to a changeup or offspeed pitch. But I went fastball and just didn't locate it."
