The debut of the new pairing of Brandon Gaudin and C.J. Nitkowski on Braves telecasts will come during spring training. No need to wait for the regular-season opener March 28.
Braves fans will be able to watch at least five, perhaps more, spring training games on Bally Sports South/Southeast this year. The new duo will call the final four home games – March 20 (Blue Jays), March 21 (Yankees), March 23 (Rays) and March 25 (Twins) from the Braves’ spring training home in North Port, Florida. The schedule also includes a March 18 (Rays) game picked up from another regional sports network. All game times are at 1 p.m.
Bally Sports South/Southeast could pick up other games from regional networks. A complete schedule of televised games is expected to be released soon.
Nitkowski replaces Jeff Francoeur as color analyst with play-by-play announcer Gaudin.
