Worth noting

Jason Heyward opened Monday's 8-1 win over the Phillies by sending a Cliff Lee fastball over the chain-link fence that sits at least 40 feet beyond the right-center-field wall at Bright House Field. Two of the three home runs Heyward has hit in his first 27 Grapefruit League at-bats have come against left-handed pitchers.

• With two consecutive scoreless appearances, Ryan Buchter has resuscitated his bid to begin the upcoming season as a left-handed specialist in Atlanta's bullpen. Buchter faced two left-handed hitters -- Domonic Brown and Bobby Abreu -- during Monday's game against the Phillies. Brown struck out and Abreu snuck a single through the infield's right side.

• The Braves acquired Zach Stewart from the White Sox in exchange for cash considerations on Monday. Stewart is targeted to provide depth to Triple-A Gwinnett's pitching staff. The 27-year-old right-hander was described by one National League scout as "a strike-thrower who eats innings."
