ATLANTA: 2017 72-90, third place
MANAGER Brian Snitker (third season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Brandon McCarthy, RHP Anibal Sanchez, LHP Scott Kazmir, INF Charlie Culberson, OF Preston Tucker, OF Ronald Acuna, 3B Austin Riley, OF Jeff Decker, 2B Christian Colon, RHP Shane Carle
SUBTRACTIONS: OF Matt Kemp, RHP R.A. Dickey, 3B Adonis Garcia, 1B Matt Adams, INF Jace Peterson, RHP Jason Motte
OUTLOOK: Teheran, Foltynewicz and Newcomb have provided reasons this spring to believe they can improve their 2017 numbers. For a change, the spring spotlight was on a position player; Acuna was hitting .432 with 4 home runs, 11 RBI and 4 steals when he was sent to minor league camp. The move involving the 20-year-old top prospect was expected. It was made to maintain an extra full season of contractual control down the road, but Acuna likely will be recalled in April and immediately start in left field. He could provide a needed power bat to help Freeman in the middle of the lineup. The Braves likely are still at least a year away from contending in the NL East, but improved starting pitching could push them closer to .500 this year.
PITTSBURGH: 2017 75-87, fourth place
MANAGER Clint Hurdle (seventh season)
ADDITIONS: OF Corey Dickerson, LHP Kyle Crick, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Michael Feliz, 3B Colin Moran
SUBTRACTIONS: CF Andrew McCutchen, RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Daniel Hudson, C Chris Stewart, 1B John Jaso, RHP Joaquin Benoit
OUTLOOK: General Manager Neal Huntington insists the Pirates are not rebuilding, but it certainly looks that way after they flipped franchise cornerstones McCutchen and Cole for less expensive and less proven talent. The Pirates did nothing in free agency, though they were able to grab Dickerson -- an All-Star for Tampa Bay last season -- in February. Dickerson's arrival gives Pittsburgh some stability in the outfield, but the Pirates still have some serious power issues outside of Bell, who finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting. Pittsburgh finished 29th in the majors in home runs in 2017, and while McCutchen and Dickerson's numbers are comparable, the rest of the lineup isn't exactly imposing. If Marte can put his suspension-marred 2017 behind him, if Polanco and his hamstrings can stay healthy, if Moran proves he can do more than spell Freese at third, and if Taillon, Kuhl and Williams all improve, Pittsburgh could be competitive. That's a lot of "ifs," probably a few too many.
Vibe not the same for Braves, Pirates entering series

The Atlanta Braves and the Pittsburgh Pirates are each coming off a four-game home series, but they are in different frames of mind going into their three-game set at PNC Park starting Monday

The Braves (68-55), in a tight battle for first in the National League East, got swept by Colorado, including a 4-2 loss Sunday. They will be trying to erase the weekend.

"We've got to quickly forget and get ready for the next one," Atlanta's Tyler Flowers said. "We've got to move on. We're still right in the thick of it. We can't feel sorry for ourselves or linger on whatever mistakes we made this last series.

"Got to be (like) a relief pitcher -- quickly forget it and be ready for the next one."

Pittsburgh (63-62), pressing to stay in the hunt for a playoff spot, conversely will still be basking in the glow of its split with the Chicago Cubs, who lead the NL Central. The Pirates held the Cubs to one run in all four games, each on a solo homer, and took Sunday's finale 2-1 on Adam Frazier's two-out walkoff homer in the 11th inning.

"Very impressive. Very pleased. Satisfied," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said with a huge grin.

Pittsburgh found runs hard to get against the Cubs, with two 1-0 losses and five runs total in the four games, but got stellar pitching.

This will be the first meeting this season between Pittsburgh and Atlanta.

The starters on Monday are a matchup of right-handers acquired in trades last month. Atlanta's Kevin Gausman (7-9, 4.22 ERA) faces Pittsburgh's Chris Archer (4-5, 4.49 ERA).

Archer will make his fourth start (1-0) since joining the Pirates. In his last start, he struck out seven, walked none and his teammates staked him to a two-run lead, but he couldn't hold it in what became a no-decision Wednesday in a 6-4 loss at Minnesota.

He gave up four runs and six hits in five-plus innings.

"Everything felt good, but I'd rather put up zeros and feel bad than feel good and give up some runs," Archer said. "We hold ourselves to a high standard as a pitching staff here. I've already learned that. Giving up a couple runs is all right, but giving up four or five is unacceptable.

"Just get back out there in a couple days, continue to hone, continue to sharpen and look forward to having a lot better outing in five days."

Those five days are up for Archer, who has never faced the Braves.

Gausman is 0-1 with an 8.44 ERA against Pittsburgh. He has two wins in a row and three in his past four starts, giving up eight runs and six walks with 17 strikeouts. That includes going 2-1 with a 2.84 ERA since he joined Atlanta from Baltimore.

In a 5-2 win Wednesday over Miami, Gausman gave up two runs in six innings but struggled with his command. The first batter he faced walked and later scored.

"With this team, you never feel like you're out of the game," Gausman said. "You just try to put up zeros and eventually they're going to put up good at-bats."
