Audio Podcast: Mike Remlinger Interview

Veteran reliever Mike Remlinger had been suffering through a tough spring training - until Tuesday. Remlinger had his best outing of the month against the Astros, and BravesCenter's Bill Shanks talked with him after the game.

After several rough outings this month, Mike Remlinger had turned into a longshot to make the Braves' Opening Day roster. But Atlanta Manager Bobby Cox said yesterday he still believed the veteran Remlinger had a chance to be a huge presence for this team if he proved he could be effective in the next two weeks.

Well, after entering the game with a 20.77 ERA, Remlinger pitched two perfect innings against the Houston Astros, including a strikeout. His ERA lowered to 11.57. With the potential loss of fellow lefty John Foster, Remlinger has a great shot at making the roster if he continues to pitch well for the rest of the month.
