Updated: Braves trade for Janish | Atlanta Braves

by @ 8:14 pm.   Filed under braves

“In evaluating after Simmons was hurt and talking to our scouts, we felt Janish was the best defensive shortstop out there that we could acquire,” Braves general manager Frank Wren said. “He was the number one guy on our list. … He is a proven defensive talent and we felt for our club that was the most important aspect of the acquisition.”

Braves send Delgado to minors | Atlanta Braves

by @ 8:12 pm.   Filed under braves

The Braves optioned right-hander Randall Delgado to Triple-A Gwinnett following Saturday’s game against the Mets. The move clears a spot for Ben Sheets, who will start Sunday’s series finale.

Delgado will pitch Monday for the G-Braves at Indianapolis. He will return to the Braves to pitch one of the double-header games against the Nationals Saturday. A new rule allows teams to add a 26th player to the roster for double-headers.

McCann, Pastornicky back | Atlanta Braves

by @ 11:40 am.   Filed under braves

The Braves also re-called Tyler Pastornicky from Gwinnett to fill the shortstop position after the injury to Andrelton Simmons (officially placed on DL with broken hand) and Jack Wilson (day-to-day with dislocated pinkie). Martin Prado will start at shortstop Saturday after he replaced Wilson in the fifth inning Friday.

A trade to acquire a short-term shortstop is still possible. General manager Frank Wren said Friday is didn’t want to move Pastornicky up and down a great deal as they have started to get the young player time at second base and eventually outfield.
