In a report from MLBPipeline writer William Boor, it appears that the Braves could be shipping off a long-time M-Brave to a Southern League Rival in Birmingham.
Tyler Neslony, an OF in the #Braves system, is being traded to the #WhiteSox, according to a source.
Neslony is hitting .164 through 19 games this season.

Neslony is a former 9th round pick out of Texas Tech in the 2016 MLB Draft, and his big-time bat was what appealed to the Braves. Neslony has been in AA Mississippi since 2018, and it appeared he was turning a corner in 2019 after hitting .292 with an .827 OPS. However, after no 2020 minor league season, Neslony has not found his groove. As I mentioned earlier, this is likely a player for cash transaction (if there is any transaction at all), but maybe the Braves will get another prospect in return.
