As stated in yesterday’s Braves Roster News piece, the team had to trim the roster from 30 to 28 and did so by making 3 subtractions and 1 addition.
As discussed yesterday, Jackson and Schebler seemed the obvious choice to go down and Sobotka seems destined to be a break glass in case of emergency filler from the player pool. I do wish Schebler would’ve gotten more of an opportunity, but I’m ok with the decision.
Braves Roster News: Rusin Back to Gwinnett
Braves DFA’d Chris Rusin 2 days ago, but he passed through waivers and heads back to Gwinnett.

Braves go RH heavy against a RHP. Putting the LHHs in hasn’t worked up to this point so why not?
Finish the homestand off in style, boys!
