The Braves are adjusting their 40-man roster ahead of the 2022 Rule 5 Draft, and some notable names were not included this round:
The #Braves today selected RHP Michael Tonkin and RHP Seth Elledge to the major league roster, while also reinstating C Manny Piña and RHP Huascar Ynoa from the injured list. The club’s 40-man roster is now full.

I talked about this on the show, but there’s a non-zero chance the Braves leave Braden Shewmake unprotected. There were some other names like Darius Vines or Victor Vodnik that could have been added, but there is still some time to outright certain players before next week’s deadline. Ynoa and Piña had to be activated at some point, and there’s still an opportunity for a trade. The Braves probably aren’t done shuffling things around before November 15th, and of course, they’ll have to make some room to add guys in free agency. We’ll keep you posted with any other moves.
