B.J. has commuted to Braves camp just over an hour away in Lake Buena Vista throughout spring training.
Uggla still struggling: Uggla made his team-high sixth error in the fourth inning, and the Phillies scored three unearned runs after it. The second baseman has hit .210 with one extra-base hit, three walks and 20 strikeouts in 62 at-bats, and his .537 OPS is second-lowest among Braves with at least 20 at-bats (Reed Johnson, .490 in 48 at-bats).
Etc. The Braves have their last split-squad day Saturday. Julio Teheran will start against the Astros at Champion Stadium, and prospect Sean Gilmartin will face the Blue Jays in Dunedin. The next round of roster cuts are likely to be made by Sunday….The Phillies also scored an unearned run in the second after third baseman Chris Johnson's high throw to first base, his fifth error…. Jonny Venters, who hasn't pitched since a four-walk inning March 13, will throw in a minor league game Saturday. The Braves rested Venters for most of a week, insisting it was for no particular reason other than it was a long spring and they wanted to "back off" using him for a while…. Cory Gearrin threw in a minor league game Friday, giving him appearances in back-to-back games. The Braves like to have all of their relievers pitch on consecutive days before the end of spring training.
