The Braves have paused the celebrations and announced several roster moves on Saturday afternoon. Atlanta selected the contracts of RHP Alan Rangel and OF Travis Demeritte.

Rangel, the 24-year-old right-hander, posted a 3.38 ERA in 22 appearances with the Mississippi Braves this season. Demeritte had a successful year at the plate, slashing .285/.370/.958 with Triple-A Gwinnett.

And although it provides no guarantees on the timetable of their return, Mike Soroka and Ronald Acuña Jr. were reinstated from the 60-day IL.

In addition, the Braves released LHP Grant Dayton, who put together a 6.23 ERA in 2021, and declined the 2022 option for RHP Josh Tomlin. Atlanta’s final move of the day was outrighting Terrance Gore to Gwinnett. The outfielder made an appearance during the World Series as a pinch-runner.
