The Braves announced that they called a player Kramer Robertson From the concessions of the Cardinals and his choice to Triple-A. To make room in the list of 40 players, defensive player Eddie Rosario Converted to IL for 60 days.
A fourth-round pick for the cards in the 2017 draft, Robertson made his way to the seniors mostly by walking, as well as stealing some bases. This year, in 38 Triple-A games, he walked in 19.3% of his board appearances, producing a slash of .220/.398/.371, 120 wRC+, along with 12 steals. He was able to make his MLB debut with the cards, but only made two games, and only had one plate appearance, which resulted in a delayed RBI.
Robertson played second, third, and short in Triple-A this year, which means he’ll provide some depth to the Braves game. The club has Ozzy AlbisAnd the Dansby Swanson And the Austin Riley as regular and Orlando Archia As a primary bench player. Robertson is likely to be competing with Joe Dunandis the same as a recent waiver claim, to be the next summons whenever the need arises.
As for Rosario, it was announced in late April that he was undergoing a laser operation to deal with “blurred vision and swelling in the right retina.” The projected timeline for recovery from this procedure is listed as 8 to 12 weeks, which would likely mean that Rosario would not return before July. With today’s transfer, he will not be eligible to return until 60 days from his initial IL status, which will be in late June. Although he has recently started crate beating, per Justin Toscano from The Atlanta Journalis not on his way back in the next few weeks, making today’s transaction a mere formality.
