Atlanta Braves news and notes from Tuesday

It was a busy Tuesday for the Atlanta Braves, who made a few roster moves ahead of their matchup with the New York Yankees. The first move was Ozzie Albies’ much-anticipated placement on the 10-day injured list. It was officially revealed that he strained his left hamstring, and in a corresponding move, the club called up Vaughn Grissom from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Up next, the Braves recalled outfielder Lucas Williams from Triple-A Gwinnett. The club then optioned Forrest Wall to Gwinnett.

The Williams for Wall move will not be largely consequential to the Braves lineup, but it will be interesting to see which role he plays on the 40-man.
