Braves place rookie Banuelos on DL with elbow inflammation

The emergence of Manny Banuelos will not come without a health hiccup. The Atlanta Braves' rookie starter was placed on the 15-day disabled list for what the team is classifying as left elbow inflammation.

The Atlanta Braves’ Chris Johnson wants out but will he get his wish?

The Atlanta Braves and their third baseman Chris Johnson don’t seem to agree on much anymore.  But they share the same desire to move Johnson to another team.  The problem is that, so far, it’s been easier said than done. At the heart of the problem: Johnson’s salary is not remotely commensurate to his production on the field. Johnson had a career year in 2013, finishing...
