Braves DFA'd Jim Johnson. They gave his roster spot to newly acquired Tony Sanchez. Micah Johnson also got DFA'd. Max Fried will be called up to start on Sunday 

Not seeing the Jim Johnson DFA anywhere, and the Braves have walked back the Micah Johnson DFA after they counted again and realized they only had 39 guys on the 40-man roster.

So added to the active roster: Rex Brothers, Ian Krol, Max Fried, Rio Ruiz, Tony Sanchez, and Luke Jackson.

DL'd: Jason Motte

Not DFA'd: Micah Johnson. At least not yet. In yet another example of the front office not getting some of the little things right, Johnson found out he was DFA'd second-hand via Twitter. Now he's not DFA'd, at least not until after the weekend.

oListening to Freeman after the game it sounds like the Braves should consider shutting him down. Freeman told the media he's steadily losing more power due to his wrist. He said it's like swinging a wet newspaper. He said "I've got nothing left really".

I've noticed him shaking and rubbing his wrist a lot. For a team player like Freddie to say that, it means something.  There is no real reason to play him everyday now.  Largely (if not completely) shut Freddie down.  Give him some rest; protect him from further damage &  give Matt Adams some at bats.  We need Freddie to be 100% at the beginning of next season.

Got nothing to gain by him playing hurt. Shut him down and let him rest and get back to 100% for 2018.
