Atlanta Braves Make Another Round Of Roster Cuts

Right-handed pitchers Jaye Chapman, J.J. Hoover and Todd Redmond, and left-handed pitcher Luis Avilan were all optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett. Because they are not on the 40-man roster, Gilmartin and catcher Evan Gattis were both simply reassigned to Minor League camp.

"We may see one or all of the guys on that list back in the big leagues this year," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We had a real good crop of kids."

None of these moves come as much of a surprise, although it is a shame to see Gilmartin leave the Major League camp. The young southpaw will need to get stretched out for his upcoming season, which will likely be at Double-A, and could follow a similar path to Atlanta as the one Mike Minor took a few years ago. That seems to have worked out pretty well for both parties.

The Braves have another busy week of Spring Training action ahead of them and will likely make yet another round of cuts by Wednesday or Thursday. After those cuts, only the guys guaranteed a roster spot and those who are the finalists for various jobs will remain at Dark Star.
