Ramblings about the Braves by True Braves Fans
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.
