Atlanta Braves news and notes from Saturday

Syndication: The Enquirer Albert Cesare/The Enquirer / USA TODAY NETWORK

Sean Murphy is reportedly set to return behind the plate for Atlanta on Sunday, according to’s Mark Bowman.

As Bowman notes, the Braves keeping Murphy off the IL will have allowed him the potential to play in an additional three games versus putting him on the IL. Although we don’t yet know if Charlie Culberson will be retained, this seems to have been worthwhile, given that the 26th man very rarely sees the field. This has worked out quite nicely for Murphy and Atlanta.
