Braves Make First Spring Training Roster Cuts

Via a press release:

The Atlanta Braves trimmed their spring roster by 13 players today, optioning seven players and re-assigning six others. Right-handed pitchers Stephen Marek, James Parr and Todd Redmond were optioned to Gwinnett (AAA), along with left-handed pitcher Lee Hyde. Right-handed pitchers Juan Abreu and Kyle Cofield and left-handed pitcher Jose Ortegano were optioned to Mississippi (AA).

The six players who were re-assigned to minor league camp include right-handed pitchers Erik Cordier and Chris Resop, left-handed pitcher Mike Minor, catchers Braeden Schlehuber and Jesus Sucre and outfielder Cody Johnson.

Atlanta now has 44 active players remaining in its Major League camp.

No real surprises here. Cofield had opened some eyes, and Cordier was having a good spring, but I imagine for most of those guys they need to get working on preparing themselves for the rotation.

Noticeably absent from these cuts was Craig Kimbrel and Jeff Lyman.
