Atlanta chops Freddy Garcia

The Braves recently announced that old man 37 year old pitcher Freddy Garcia was released from his contract hours shy of being guaranteed $1.25 million and a place on the roster. Garcia was fighting for a spot in the already weakened pitching rotation, but a languishing pre-season ERA of 4.76 eliminated his chances. The Atlanta bullpen will be without both Brandon Beachy and Kris Medlen for the duration of the season. In addition, Mike Minor’s health remains in question however, he is expected to see minor league action in the near future.550205_2660014918936_1812824434_1550768_1002389457_n
