Atlanta Braves P J.R. Graham hit 99 mph during his spring outing Wednesday, Feb. 27, and he allowed just one hit in two innings. He's made a strong impression in camp despite playing only nine games above Class A. Graham is likely to start the year at Double-A Mississippi or Triple-A Gwinnett, but manager Fredi Gonzalez could consider him for a bullpen role.
