NORTH PORT, Fla. (AP) -- Felix Hernandez turned around with surprise as he sensed media waiting to engage him.
''You want to talk to me?'' the new Atlanta Braves pitcher asked.
Yes. Former Cy Young winners have a way of drawing interest.
Hernandez's presence is one of the early sub plots for the defending National League East Division champions. Free-agent acquisition Cole Hamels, pegged No. 4 in the team's rotation, may miss three weeks of camp with shoulder soreness. There already had been an expected duel for the No. 5 spot between Hernandez, Sean Newcomb, Kyle Wright and recently signed Josh Tomlin.
