Starting today 6/20, teams can only carry 13 pitchers on the active roster.  Braves currently have 14, so Cruz or Lee is likely headed back to Gwinnett and Demeritte is likely coming back.

Yep, the rule has been delayed for essentially 2 seasons. The Braves will have to make a roster move before tonight's game.

Ford is a placeholder until Rosario gets back.

Seems like a long time for a guy who hasn't hit much.

Yeah, I felt we might see an IF but I thought more of Kramer Robertson, little more versatility and another 2B. Hes also been hot at Gwinnett. Not a big deal but still a little weird to me.

I was hoping they would add another catcher so Contreras can DH more.

I dont think they're ready to cut Ozuna's time that much considering the large paycheck he's collecting. They probably hope he'll catch fire, maybe after the ASG we'll see him reduced if hes still struggling. Snitker said he was going to utilize a 2 day plan. Contreras for 2, d'Arnaud for 2.

Is the two day plan regardless of who’s on the mound? I thought Snit was trying to make sure certain pitchers were matched up with certain catchers.

He hatched that plan but he's shifted a bit for it at times if he wants Contreras at DH. He just said going forward they'd be looking at keeping both catchers fresh and get them ABs by rotating every 2 games.

Are we really going to carry three catchers next year when Manny Piña gets back?

If Contreras can play LF and have an entire offseason and ST it doesn't matter.

They could also trade TDA.

Maybe I get too attached to players, but something tells me this doesn't happen. I could see them not resigning him, but I can't imagine trading him in any circumstance.

If the Braves just fell off of a cliff and were clearly out of it ...I could see it then but so many bad things would need to happen for that to be the case.

Well the issue is we have 3 catchers next year. Contreras is ready, d'Arnaud and Pina are under control for next year. So you'd think someone is going. Unless you can unload Ozuna and you feel comfortable splitting Contreras and d'Arnaud at DH. You want Contreras to get ABs but not hinder his development as a catcher.
