Braves infielders Kelly Johnson and Brent Lillibridge will be the guests in The Braves Show's chatroom Tuesday night.
Johnson, the favorite to win the Braves' opening at second base, will be in the chatroom around 7:00 pm ET. He's been working out with former Atlanta second baseman and current first base coach Glenn Hubbard on learning the position. Kelly will be in to talk about his chances of being the starter at second and the new leadoff man.
Lillibridge will then join the chat around 8:30 pm ET. Brent was acquired from the Pirates last week in the Adam LaRoche / Mike Gonzalez trade. You can listen to an audio interview with Lillibridge from last week here.
