"Three solid innings," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "I thought he pitched really good."

Wisler, Atlanta's projected No. 3 starter, didn't throw on the side after the initial delay, but he said he didn't expect his low pitch count -- he only threw around 30 -- to hinder his progression toward being ready for the regular season.
"Threw some pretty good pitches today, I thought," Wisler said. "Got the ball on the ground, which is a good thing -- means I kept it down in the zone. Just have some small things to clean up right now to be ready."
Odds and ends
• Hector Olivera is known more for his bat than for his glove, and many expect the Braves to need a late-inning defensive replacement for him in left field. Olivera made two nice plays Thursday, however, one a running catch near the left-field line and another one where he had to backpedal.
"It was funny, because we talked in the [staff] meeting today and we were talking about certain situations, certain guys who you feel comfortable [with], and they asked me about Olivera playing left field," Gonzalez said. "I said, 'From what I've seen right now, he's not a complete defensive substitution at the end of the game.'
"Obviously you have to let it play out and see what happens, but right now, I feel he's gotten better the whole spring."
• Other pitchers originally scheduled to pitch Thursday, including Dan Winkler and Jason Grilli, will pitch in one of Friday's split-squad games, Gonzalez said.
