The Atlanta Braves called up catcher Christian Bethancourt today from double-A Mississippi. Bethancourt was in Sip last year too, along with the other fellow in this photo, Andrelton Simmons. That 2012 M-Braves team had a lot of players who have spent time in the Majors with Atlanta this year:
Zeke Spruill, who is now with the Diamondbacks (Chris Johnson trade), was also on that 2012 team.
Best tweet of the day:
We are one catcher away from each member of our starting rotation having their own personal catcher.
