Mark Bowman on Christian Bethancourt:

After last night’s game, I opined that Shelby Miller might not have surrendered back-to-back homers to begin the seventh inning had he not had to throw 29 pitches during a sixth inning that would have been cleaner had Christitan Bethancourt not dropped the knee-high fastball Miller snuck past Billy Hamilton to begin the frame. The Braves love Bethancourt’s arm, but they have been discouraged by his glovework behind the plate.
Had John Buck not retired near the end of Spring Training, I’m pretty certain the Braves would have already sent Bethancourt down to Triple-A Gwinnett. But because there is not an attractive backup option within the system right now, Bethancourt will continue serving in the backup role to A.J. Pierzynski, who I’m told has been a stern mentor to the young catcher.

Braves send Ian Thomas to Gwinnett and call up Pedro Ciriaco. Braves had an extra arm with Cahill in the pen. Ciriaco replaces CJs bat. Minor goes to the 60 day DL to clear a 40 man spot for Ciriaco.

John Hart was on the broadcast last night and he said that they had no clue when Minor would be back. Not good news.
