So… day-2 of the Grapefruit League season didn’t exactly go as planned. Of course it ‘s just spring training (and very early in the spring at that), but an 18-3 loss is always ugly.

To say it was a disappointing day for the Braves top-2 pitching prospects, Randall Delgado and Julio Teheran, doesn’t begin to describe it.

Delgado gave up 4 earned runs, including a homer, on 2 hits and 2 walks in an inning of work. Teheran gave up 7 earned runs, including 6—yes SIX—homers, on 6 hits and a walk. The wind was blowing out, but 6 homers in 2 innings has to sting.

The good news is that none of it counts for anything, and the young Braves hurlers have plenty of time to find their groove in the competition for that 5th spot in the Braves rotation.

Other good news: 

Braves pitching prospect Sean Gilmartin looked good in a scoreless inning of work, as did Atlanta bullpen candidate Jairo Ascencio, who also pitched a scoreless inning.

Martin Prado was 2 for 3 on the afternoon. And Braves infield prospect (and Chipper’s heir at 3B?) Joe Terdoslavich hit safely in both of his at-bats.

But if you still need a little something to wash the taste of that 18-3 loss out of your mouth, here’s a fun video for ya. Seems like it’d be a lot of fun to just sit down and have a cold beverage with these two guys. Class acts, both.
