Braves make a flurry of roster moves ahead of their series with the Mets

The Braves are getting healthier. Max Fried hasn’t missed a beat since returning from the IL, and Kyle Wright is beginning to look more like the pitcher we saw last season after a few starts. Now, top relief option Collin McHugh is returning, with Michael Harris II, Travis d’Arnaud, and Raisel Iglesias not far behind.

As you can see from the tweet, Danny Young has been optioned to make room for McHugh. Eli White has also been placed on the paternity list and will be replaced by Nick Solak for the time being.

These reinforcements couldn’t come at a better time for the Braves. They are in the middle of a divisional series with the Marlins and then embark on a journey to face the Mets for the first time all season in a four-game series at Citi Field this weekend. By that time, it’s not unreasonable to think a couple of Michael Harris, Travis d’Arnaud, and Raisel Iglesias could re-join the club as well.

Additionally, Mark Feinsand of reported the Braves made an acquisition during Monday night’s win, signing Daniel Robertson to a minor-league contract.

Robertson is a utility piece that can play all over the infield. He last spent time in the majors back in 2021 with the Brewers, but the offensive numbers aren’t exactly inspiring, hitting just .164 over 90 plate appearances. For his career, Robertson owns a .227 average with 18 homers and a .683 OPS. If things go right, it’s highly unlikely he ever appears on the major-league roster, but you never know, and Alex Anthopolous is constantly looking to improve the organization’s depth in case of emergency.
