Jurrjens Seems Likely For Opening Day Start

"Based on the Braves' pitching plans for the first week of the spring-training schedule, Jair Jurrjens appears targeted for an Opening Day start April 5 against the Mets at New York.

The Braves haven't named their Opening Day starter, but it was assumed entering spring that Jurrjens or Tommy Hanson would do the honors in place of Tim Hudson, who's recovering from back surgery and will miss all or most of April.

That was before Hanson sustained a Grade 1 concussion in a car wreck while driving to the first workout of spring training. He wasn't cleared to resume throwing for six days and didn't get back on the mound until Wednesday."
