A busy off-day for Atlanta as the roster churn continues

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Braves made a series of roster moves on Monday evening, announcing infielder Sean Kazmar Jr. has been outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett, reliever Nate Jones has been released and reliever Carl Edwards Jr. elected free agency after being dropped to Gwinnett over the weekend.

Earlier on Monday, the Braves signed Tanner Roark to a minor league deal and promoted Johan Camargo as bench depth while sending Victor Arano and Jasseel De La Cruz back to Gwinnett.

Kazmar, the longtime journeyman, figures to continue bouncing back between Atlanta and Gwinnett as organizational depth. His demotion opens up a spot on the 40-man roster, which currently sits at 39.

Jones, who was designated for assignment last week after a poor start to the season, will look for work elsewhere.

Edwards Jr., who stuck around with the organization after not making the roster this spring, will also look for work elsewhere after he did not fare well in his relief appearance Friday night.

The Braves begin a three-game tilt with the Blue Jays on Tuesday evening.
