Punching Tickets - Stars Among Us


A bunch of Braves players were named to various All-Star teams in the past couple of weeks:  congratulations to all on a job well done so far this year!


 * – alas, won’t be able to take part, as these guys got another gig this week!



  • RHP Alex Grosser (assigned, 7/1)
  • RHP Carlos Salazar (assigned, 7/1)
  • IF Dylan Manwaring (assigned, 7/1)



  • RHP and 2013 1st Round draft selection Jason Hursh was formally assigned to Rome this week (7/5) (Excellent first outing)



  • LF Robby Hefflinger (from Lynchburg, 6/28)


  • RHP Yohan Flande is back up again (from Mississippi, 7/2; was assigned to AA on 6/30)
  • RHP Mark Lamb (from Mississippi, 7/4)

  • Alas, as players move in one direction, other have to go the other way to make room.  Such was the case as Corey Gearrin was optioned to Gwinnett this week (7/5).


  • OF Joey Terdoslavich‘s contract was selected by the big club (marking his arrival on the 40-man roster as well), culminated a big week for him in which he was named first to represent the USA in the Futures Game, then the International League All-Star game, and finally ending with his first major league hit – a solid line-drive single with two outs in the ninth inning at Philadelphia on Friday night.  Put those in your scrapbook, Joe!


 * – a procedural move to allow room on the 40-man roster for Joey Terdoslavich


These players were released by the organization this week.  We offer our thanks and congratulations for their time with the Braves, and our hopes for their future – whether continuing in baseball or some other pursuit.
