Braves Cut Three More

After their win against the Indians the Braves cut three more players from their major league roster, all three were non-roster invitees. Catcher Tyler Flowers and infielders Diory Hernandez and Javier Guzman were sent to minor league camp. There was no surprise for most of these guys. Flowers put on a great show and didn't hurt his stock in the eyes of the Braves as an up-and-coming catcher and first baseman.

The cuts of Hernandez and Guzman thin the candidates for the utility infielder position. This helps the stock of Martin Prado and Brent Lillibridge who are both still fighting it out for the job. Prado has been playing more shortstop in order to prove his ability to fill in for Escobar, and Lillibridge has been playing a lot of third. Both are positions those players have not played in a long time.
