Braves add Eddie Rosario and Tyler Matzek to the active roster

It truly is a celebration on July 4th for Braves country, as they have activated two of their heroes from last year’s postseason run ahead of a critical four-game series with the Cardinals.

Rosario, last year’s NLCS MVP, played in eight games for the Stripers and went 9-for-33 at the plate. It’s nothing to write home about, but as long as his vision is back to normal, this is a huge addition to the Braves lineup, who desperately needed to add a left-handed bat.

Matzek only appeared in two games for the Stripers, but it was evident very quickly that he didn’t need much time on the farm. He didn’t allow a single baserunner and struck out five of the six batters he faced. With all the injuries Atlanta’s bullpen is currently suffering, adding a healthy Matzek should do this team wonders.

To make room for Matzek and Rosario, the Braves designated Silvino Bracho for assignment and sent Mike Ford to AAA Gwinnett.
