Punching Tickets – Braves Transactions for Week of 6/21-28

And I thought last week was a busy week for minor league transactions.

…and with that:  let’s see whose tickets were punched for another destination this week!


A whole bunch of new assignments as the roster was filled out last week to begin their short-season play:


  • LHP Jordan Sechler (new assignment, 6/21)
  • LHP Chuck Buchanan (new assignment, 6/21)

  •  LHP Blake Brown (from Rome… was only there since 6/21)


  • OF Kyle Wren (from Danville, 6/11).  Yes – after one week!  Of course he was hitting .409 after the first five games to lead the team.  First game at Rome?  2-3, both doubles.  Believe me, Kyle, pro ball won’t be this easy forever!
  • LHP Cole Nelson (New Assignment, 6/13)
  • OF Edison Sanchez (from Extended Spring Training, 6/21)
  • 2013 First Round pick RHP Jason Hursh has been assigned to Rome, though there’s no formal transaction announcement about this yet, nor does he appear on the official roster yet.



  • LF Robby Hefflinger (from Lynchburg, 6/28).  Was leading Carolina League by a mile in homers (21) and total bases (162).  Second in OPS, 6th in hits, 9th in runs scored.
  • RHP Cristhian Martinez reassigned to continue rehab (from GCL Braves, 6/25).  First outing?  Not so good:  1 inning, 2 earned runs allowed via 2 hits and 2 walks.
  • 2B Omar Luna (new assignment, 6/22)
  • 2B Emerson Landoni (from Lynchburg, 6/21)
  • RHP James Hoyt (from Lynchburg, 6/21)


  • 2B Philip Gosslin (from Mississippi, 6/23)
  • RHP Joe Nisenius (new assignment, 6/21)
  • SS Luis Nunez (from Mississippi, 6/21)
