The Atlanta Braves made up for Friday’s off day with a roster move that brought fan-favorite Charlie Culberson back to the organization.

After being designated for assignment by the Braves in 2020 and later picked up by the Texas Rangers, the utilityman is set to begin his second stint in the Braves organization with the Gwinnett Stripers.
Culberson made quite the impression on Braves fans during his first season in Atlanta in 2018. In 113 games, he collected 80 hits and homered 12 times. With less impressive seasons in 2019 and 2020, Culberson still remained highly favored across Braves Country.
The Stripers kicked off their season last night against the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp.
