Martin Prado Headed To Mississippi Braves For Rehab Assignment

With the International League headed into their All-Star break today, Atlanta Braves outfielder/third baseman Martin Prado will go to Mississippi to continue his rehab assignment with the M-Braves. Prado hit .176 with three walks and an RBI in six games with the G-Braves.

Prado made his Major League debut with the Braves on April 23, 2006, becoming just the seventh M-Brave to receive a promotion directly to Atlanta. Prado was a member of the inaugural Mississippi Braves club in 2005 where he hit .280 in 143 games. He also appeared in 43 games with the Double-A club in 2006, batting .278.

Added trivia: Can you name the other six M-Braves to get promoted to the Majors for the first time directly from Mississippi. Post your answers in the comments section.

Earlier today the M-Braves placed pitcher Kenshin Kawakami on the disabled list with a right shoulder strain. I would more aptly describe the injury as the Braves trying to get as much insurance money out of his contact as they can ... and KK is helping by pitching like he's injured.
