Braves optioned RHP Aaron Northcraft to Triple-A Gwinnitt; reassigned OF Matt Lipka, RHPs Jason Hursh, J.R. Graham, Yunesky Maya, Mark Lamm and Cody Martin, 3B Edward Salcedo, LHP Hector Daniel Rodriguez, Cs Matt Kennelly, Jose Yepez and Braeden Schlehuber and 1B Mark Hamilton to minor league camp.
There are no surprise cuts among this group. Graham is the highest rated of the bunch and could make his major league debut sometime this season as long as he's over his shoulder issues. Northcraft could also be an option for the rotation at some point with all the Braves' injury issues involving their starters. Mar 14 - 10:16 AM
