Worth noting

• Three pitchers -- Yohan Flande, Juan Jamie and Wirfin Obispo -- have not been able to leave the Dominican Republic due to visa issues. The Braves are not sure when any of them might be able to travel to the United States.

• Much has been made of the fact that Chris Johnson played for Chipper Jones' godfather, Pete Dunn, at Stetson University. Johnson is also the son of Ron Johnson, who made his Major League debut for the 1982 Royals, whose general manager was current Braves president John Schuerholz.
