According to a Twitter post from Mark Bowman:

The Braves have placed reliever Jeff Bennett on the 15-day DL with a broken left hand. According to a source, he punched a door.

Nice. So he's not good at baseball and he's not that smart either. "Hey, let's use the part of my body that is my livelihood as a weapon."

Left-handed reliever Boone Logan replaces Bennett on the roster. He had a 3.28 ERA at Gwinnett, with a .205 BAA, and 39 strikeouts in 35.2 IP.

There's some minor league movement today as well, with RHP Jeff Lyman going from Mississippi to Gwinnett, and LHP Richard Sullivan going from the Beach to Mississippi, and getting the start tonight in place of Lyman.
