Braves' right-handed starter Kyle Davies and catching prospect Jarrod Saltalamacchia will be in The Braves Show's chatroom Tuesday night.
Davies will join premium subscribers Tuesday at 7:00 pm ET, while Salty Dog will be in around 9:30 pm ET.
The Braves are counting on Davies to be the fifth starter this season, a year after he missed most of 2006 with groin surgery. Davies went down May 15th and did not return until September. He's now healthy and ready to go now for the 2007 season.
Saltalamacchia's 2006 season was also damaged by an injury. Salty hurt his wrist in midseason and played in only 43 games after June 1st. He hit only .230 on the season, but .338 after he returned on July 15th.
So join us in the chatroom starting at 7:00 pm ET for a great night talking Braves Baseball!
