On Tuesday night, the Atlanta Braves continued their rebuild for the future when they traded veteran reliever Jason Grilli for minor league pitcher Sean Ratcliffe; the 39-year-old Grilli was 1-2 with a 5.29 ERA in 21 appearances for Atlanta this season.
On Monday night, the Atlanta Braves acquired left-handed pitcher Brian Matusz from the Baltimore Orioles for two minor league players, however, less than a couple of hours after landing him in the deal, the Braves designated Matusz for assignment, thus ending his tenure in Atlanta before it ever began.
On Tuesday, the Atlanta Braves have officially fired Fredi Gonzalez as their manager after almost six seasons at the helm following a 9-28 start to the 2016 season; Brian Snitker, who was the team's Class-AAA manager, will serve as the interim manager for the remainder of the season.
