Worth noting

Jordan Walden would be eligible to come off the disabled list on Tuesday, but the right-handed reliever's strained left hamstring is still not strong enough for him to throw off the mound.

Jonny Venters was scheduled to meet with Braves doctors on Tuesday evening about the left elbow discomfort he felt while completing a live batting practice session last week at the club's Spring Training complex. Venters believes the discomfort he felt was just a product of ramping up his intensity, as he was facing live hitters for just the second time since undergoing a second Tommy John surgery last year.
