Punching Tickets - the Weekly Braves Transaction Wrap Sheet

BREAKING NEWS:  Paul Janish recalled from Gwinnett.  No word on the corresponding move from Atlanta, but I will hazard a guess that Ramiro Pena will be placed on the Disabled List, retroactive to the beginning of the week [CONFIRMED].

We aim to make this a weekly bit – but we’ll back up to the beginning of the month just to get things caught up.

This time of the year, there are a LOT of player re-assignments taking place.  This is partly because of the break in most minor league schedules (first half ending; second half beginning).  It is also because the just-drafted/just-signed rookies are beginning play – as our new Danville Braves team did last night, beating up on a squad of what honesty requires me to describe as “Rays’ underachievers”… none of whom had been drafted this year.  Nonetheless, the 9-1 victory was an excellent start, with these headliners:

Victor Caratininotably playing at 3B – 4/4, 3 Runs, 2B, 3B, OPS 3.000 (2nd Round)
Kyle Wren – (CF) 3-5 (2K), 2 Runs (8th Round)
Matt Kimbrel (last year draft pick) – 2 innings, 0 hits, 0 BB, 1 K.
Oh – and the Danville team manager?  Johnathan Schuerholz.

But this is about transactions:  so here they are…

We wish all these players best of luck in their future endeavors, whether in or out of baseball.


Finally, there’s a list that you never want to see any entries for… but we’ve got one this week.  Hopefully this can be corrected, for the good of the man.  Beckwith was charged with a DUI while at Lynchburg about five weeks ago.
