Before the game the Braves emptied 10 lockers from Champion Stadium and optioned those guys to the minors to begin their seasons there. One of the 10 caught me by surprise at first, INF Joe Leonard who has been getting a fair amount of playing time. In 19 games so far, Leonard appeared in 14 of them but only had four hits in 15 attempts and started only one game. Really nobody shocking was cut on Tuesday morning, the others that were cut included pitchers Cory Rasmus, Juan Jaime, Aaron Northcraft, Ryan Buchter, Yohan Flande and Gus Schlosser. Additionally, catchers Luis De La Cruz, Braeden Schlehuber and Jose Yepez were the final ones who didn’t make the first cut.
