Scott Proctor is back with the Braves. Kind of.
According to David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the veteran right-hander agreed to a minor league contract on Sunday morning and will report to Triple-A Gwinnett this week.
Proctor was cut by the Braves at the end of spring training after allowing 12 hits and 14 runs in just over 10 Grapefruit League innings. He appeared in only six games with the club in 2010.
The Braves will have him serve as organizational relief depth in case injuries begin to plague their bullpen.
Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
