For Friday night’s exhibition game against the Detroit Tigers, the Braves started what could well be their opening-day lineup.
That included center fielder Ender Inciarte leading off, left fielder Ronald Acuna hitting cleanup and Brian McCann at catcher with Julio Teheran on the mound.
The full batting order for Friday’s game, which was televised on Fox Sports South:
1. Ender Inciarte, CF
2. Josh Donaldson, 3B
3. Freddie Freeman, 1B
4. Ronald Acuna, LF
5. Nick Markakis, RF
6. Ozzie Albies, 2B

The Braves will open the regular season Thursday in Philadelphia.
Earlier this week, Teheran was named the Braves’ opening-day starting pitcher for a franchise-record-tying sixth consecutive season. Hall of Famer Warren Spahn started six season openers in a row for the Milwaukee Braves from 1957-62.
