Braves sent C Clint Sammons outright to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Sammons managed to pass through waivers successfully. The 27-year-old backstop hasn't made an appearance in the majors this year. He is batting .178/.263/.267 with two home runs and 13 RBI over 135 at-bats with Gwinnett this season.

Braves recalled catcher Clint Sammons from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Sammons will serve as the Braves' third catcher for the final month of the season. In other words, he carries absolutely no fantasy value. The 26-year-old hit just .214/.266/.344 in 299 Triple-A at-bats this season.

Braves optioned catcher Clint Sammons to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Sammons is the roster casualty for the return of Brian McCann. Hopefully, you weren't counting on him, as he is strictly backup material.

Braves recalled catcher Clint Sammons from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Sammons was sent down to Triple-A Gwinnett last week after David Ross returned from the disabled list. He will serve as the primary backup to Ross in Brian McCann's absence. He's not worth fantasy consideration.

Braves optioned catcher Clint Sammons to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Sammons became expandable again when Davis Ross was activated from the disabled list. Sammons doesn't have the bat to ever be fantasy relevant.

Clint Sammons hit a pair of two-run homers off Kyle Kendrick as the Braves beat the Phillies 12-10 on Wednesday.

Sammons is 6-for-13 this spring, but the Braves made it clear that they didn't think he was ready to take over a backup role when they signed David Ross to a two-year deal in the offseason. Sammons was the backup for the final two months of last season and went 8-for-54 with one homer. He'll return to Triple-A for the beginning of this year.

Clint Sammons went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI as the Braves defeated the Cardinals 9-4 on Thursday night.

Sammons was called up a few days ago to back up Corky Miller in the absence of Brian McCann. He had a big game tonight, as his two-run homer in the sixth inning broke a 4-4 tie and sent the Braves on their way to a comfortable victory, but considering he had a 608 OPS in Triple-A this performance was likely a mirage. Of course, being that Miller is a highly uninspiring option, Sammons could stay in the lineup until McCann returns.

Braves recalled catcher Clint Sammons from Triple-A Richmond.

Sammons will back up Corky Miller until Brian McCann is over his concussion. He'll probably return to the minors before the end of the week.

Braves purchased the contract of catcher Clint Sammons from Double-A Mississippi.

A fourth catcher for Atlanta. Sammons hit .249/.317/.364 between Single-A Myrtle Beach and Double-A Mississippi. It's unlikely that he'll have a future as a backup.
