Atlanta Braves pitchers and catchers held their first workout Wednesday in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

So, is there room for optimism?

“I think the lineup is better, you know, some of these players got a lot of at-bats last year, so they should be able to produce a little more,” Atlanta-based sports reporter I.J. Rosenberg said.

The Braves make their debut at SunTrust Park on March 31, in an exhibition game against the New York Yankees.

The first regular season game is April 14th when the Braves host the San Diego Padres.
