Atlanta Braves news and notes from Friday

MLB: Spring Training-Boston Red Sox at Atlanta Braves Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves made a series of roster cuts on Friday and now have 52 players in major league camp.

The day began with three RHPs in Seth Elledge, Darius Vines, and Roddery Muñoz getting optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett. In the same move, Alan Rangel and Luke Waddell were reassigned to minor league camp.

Vines headlines the list of roster cuts and will likely be a part of Gwinnett’s starting rotation.

The day continued with the Braves reassigning righty Victor Vodnik to minor league camp.

With five spring games under his belt, Vodnik had put together an unimpressive 15.43 ERA.
