Braves make several more roster moves ahead of Wednesday’s game

The Braves have shaken up their roster over the last several days, and they are doing it again ahead of tonight’s game with the Diamondbacks. AJ Smith-Shawver is going back to Gwinnett after spending a day with the big-league club, and Ramon Laureano is finally headed to the 10-day IL with an oblique strain. Coming up, the Braves are welcoming back Dylan Lee after a brief stint in Gwinnett, and outfielder Brian Anderson is returning from the IL.

Clearly, AJ Smith-Shawver was called up yesterday in case of emergency following an 11-inning contest that burnt most of the Braves bullpen. He’ll head back to Gwinnett, where he’ll continue his rehab assignments as a starting pitcher and will hopefully be ready to appear again for the Braves soon after the All-Star break.

Ramon Laureano should have been on the IL weeks ago. He tweaked a muscle and hasn’t appeared in a game for the Braves since June 26th, forcing the Braves to play down a man. Now, Brian Anderson will take his place and offer some more outfield depth, while Dylan Lee will provide another consistent presence out of the bullpen.
