The Braves made a series of procedural moves on Saturday to begin the offseason, beginning with selecting the contracts of Alan Rangel and Travis Demeritte to the 40-man roster. Stars Mike Soroka and Ronald Acuna Jr. were also activated from the 60-day IL in what is more of a procedural offseason move than anything meaningful regarding their recoveries.

Additionally, the club released journeyman reliever Grant Dayton and declined the option of Josh Tomlin. Neither of these moves are surprising, given that Dayton and Tomlin weren’t particularly effective when healthy this season and would have had to be on the 40-man roster in order to be retained. I’m sure Dayton and Tomlin will be happy with a championship ring from your 2021 World Champion Atlanta Braves as a farewell present. Finally, postseason baserunner extraordinaire Terrance Gore was outrighted to Gwinnett after his legendary singular pinch-running appearance in the postseason with no plate appearances.
