Braves claimed OF Adam Walker off waivers from Baltimore. They DFA'd Gosewich to make room. He was claimed by Seattle.

Braves also signed OF Xavier Avery to a minor league deal. He had a cup of coffee in the majors with the O's in 2012.

Braves have agreed to a minor league deal with Kris Medlen. Bowman said Medlen considered retirement but opted to pitch. Said he was comforted by the Braves patience and support

I think he'll be at AAA. He told Bowman he's behind schedule in his return and that's when he said the Braves reassured him there's no rush. Sounds like they want him to provide some depth assuming he can still be serviceable.

Sounds more like a "sorry we ****** up your arm, you can rehab with us until you get better or retire".

Another move may be coming. The Braves removed Adam Walker from the 40 man roster. 

By the way pitchers and catchers report in exactly two weeks.

The Adam Walker era will be remembered by Braves fans for many minutes.

He did clear waivers this time. He's listed on the Gwinnett roster.

Braves signed LHP Michael Kirkman to a minors deal. He'll get a $600K deal if he makes the roster. No word on if he got a ST invite or not.
