On Wednesday both Mike Minor and Gavin Floyd will throw for the Atlanta Braves.
Minor will also be throwing his first bullpen session on Wednesday. He is a little behind to start the season after having a procedure done on his urethra. Minor is not in jeopardy of missing the start of the season and the Braves will be counting on him to again be a key part of their rotation.

Floyd will throw live batting practice, making the first time he ha thrown to hitters since undergoing Tommy John and flexor muscle surgery last May. Floyd has already been throwing from the mound and working on his pitches. This is simply the next step as he tries to return to the rotation in late May.
