Tommy La Stella comes back to bite his old team

Tommy La Stella, he of 9 career home runs prior to last night, hit double digits in his career with the game deciding blow just after the Braves had regained the lead. The Cubs are a complete team and maybe the best takeaway from last night is that the Phillies have to face them next.

Chris Stewart traded to the Diamondbacks

It was a short stay for Chris Stewart in Atlanta. The veteran catcher did see time earlier this season in the big leagues after Tyler Flowers was hurt early on, but spent most of the year with Gwinnett before being shipped to Arizona last night for cash.

Ruiz optioned for Lucas Duda

Rio Ruiz was the roster casualty in order to add Lucas Duda to the team. Ruiz was on his first stint of the season with the big league club after playing well for Gwinnett all season long. Duda upgrades the Braves bench significantly.

Atlanta sending Pache to the Arizona Fall League

Cristian Pache headlines a group of Braves headed for the Arizona Fall League. The up-and-coming outfield prospect has had a heck of a season between several levels of the minors. It may not be too long before you see Pache in the bigs similar to the rise of Ronald Acuña Jr.
