The Atlanta Braves announced a series of roster moves on Thursday, which sent right-hander Nick Anderson to the 60-day injured list to make room for a waiver claim. The club claimed OF Dalton Guthrie off of waivers from the San Francisco Giants and optioned him to Triple-A.
The club also selected the contract of lefty Lucas Luetge and designated righty Roddery Muñoz for assignment.

Nick Anderson’s move to the 60-day injured list is retroactive to July 8 after he suffered a right shoulder strain. Anderson got off to a hot start in 2023 but started to see his impressive numbers dwindling in June and July. With his move to the IL, the Braves will certainly look to add another reliever in the coming weeks. For now, Lucas Luetge returns to the roster to claim his spot.
As for Dalton Guthrie, the 27-year-old was designated for assignment by the Giants last week. He has had 24 big league at-bats in 2023 and has tallied just four hits. He is likely to be used as a utilityman down on the farm.
