Braves designate Tyler Pastornicky for assignment


To make room on the 40-man roster for a trio of new additions the Braves designated for assignment infielder Tyler Pastornicky.

Pastornicky debuted at age 22 and once looked likely to establish himself as at least a semi-regular, but he’s hit just .243 with two homers and a .608 OPS in 124 career games.

His recent numbers in the minors haven’t been much better, but he’s still only 25 years old and could latch on somewhere as a utility man.
