Braves released LHP Paco Rodriguez.
Rodriguez, who missed the entire 2016 season following Tommy John surgery, allowed one run over four innings this spring. The release is a bit of a surprise. The 25-year-old owns a 2.53 ERA and 91/30 K/BB ratio over 85 1/3 innings in the majors, so he shouldn't be out of a job for long. Mar 28 - 9:37 AM
