Braves optioned OF Todd Cunningham to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Cunningham has hit .239/.299/.296 in 77 plate appearances this season at the major league level. The 26-year-old outfielder will probably be up and down all summer.
Jun 15 - 3:02 PM

Todd Cunningham went 3-for-4 with a two-run double, but the Braves dropped Tuesday's game to the Diamondbacks.

Cunningham capped off a five-run sixth inning with a two-run double, giving the Braves a temporary 6-4 lead. The 26-year-old had been held hitless over 19 plate appearances in his previous six games. He's batting only .277/.333/.362 on the year and doesn't have fantasy relevance at the moment.
Jun 3 - 1:05 AM

Todd Cunningham delivered a go-ahead RBI single in a 5-3 win over the Marlins on Friday night.

After Giancarlo Stanton tied the game with a long solo homer in the bottom of the seventh inning, Cunningham lined a single up the middle in the top of the eighth to put the Braves right back in front. It was the first RBI of his career. Cunningham, who was just called up from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday, went 3-for-4 on the night with two runs scored and also stole his first base. He figures to share playing time with Jonny Gomes in left field for now, but he's not a consideration in mixed fantasy leagues.

Apr 4 - 1:24 PM

Mar 9 - 4:02 PM

Todd Cunningham went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored Saturday against the Mets.

Recent pickups Eury Perez and Eric Young Jr. appear to be the favorites to step in for Melvin Upton Jr. in center field, but Cunningham will have a chance to make his case. The soon-to-be 26-year-old hit .287/.347/.406 with eight homers and 19 steals in Triple-A last season.
