Braves dump SP Chien-Ming Wang, OF Joe Benson

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/19/15) The Braves have released center fielder Joe Benson and veteran right-hander Chien-Ming Wang, both of whom had been playing for Triple-A Gwinnett.

The 35-year-old Wang had not pitched in the major leagues since 2013. He posted miserable numbers this season, the most disturbing of which was 96 hits allowed in 62 innings, which explains his 6.10 ERA.

Benson has not participated in a major league game since 2011.

Braves option Todd Cunningham, reassign Joe Benson

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/4/15) The Braves trimmed their roster by sending two outfielders to Triple-A Gwinnett, the team announced on Saturday. 

Outfielder Todd Cunningham was optioned to the minor-league affiliate. Cunningham hit .333 with six RBI in spring games for the Braves. 

The Braves also reassigned Joe Benson to Gwinnett. Benson hit .239 with two RBI.

Braves option Cunniff to Triple-A, add Benson as non-roster invitee

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/2/15) The Braves announced Thursday they optioned reliever Brandon Cunniff to Triple-A Gwinnett. They also added outfielder Joe Benson, who is competing for a spot on the bench, to the non-roster invitee list.

Braves outfielder Joe Benson still pushing for roster spot

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/1/15) Braves outfielder Joe Benson continues to impress the organization as they prepare to make the final roster adjustments before Opening Day.

Wednesday, Benson drew the start in center field and ripped a solo home run in his appearance.

"He barreled two balls off of Cole Hamels," manager Fredi Gonzalez said to MLB.com. "The center fielder made a terrific play on a ball that I thought beat him out in right-center field. He made a really, really nice swing on the home run."

Benson is hitting .250 with two RBI in 12 plate appearances this spring and Gonzalez wants to see him continue on this path for the next few days.

"[Benson] hasn't done anything not to be in the mix, really," Gonzalez said. "He's played some solid center field, and you trust him out there. He takes solid routes."

Joe Benson has good chance to make Braves' roster

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/29/15) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said that outfielder Joe Benson has a good shot to make the team's Opening Day roster. 

Gonzalez praised Benson's "energy and passion", per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"We are looking for a right-handed outfielder that can play a little bit of center, and he comes over and he keeps doing something good," Gonzalez said. “I got on the phone yesterday with (assistant GM John Coppolella) and said 'I’d like to see Benson more.' It doesn’t cost us anything, and you can bring him back and forth anytime we want. So Benson’s here and we get a chance to play him."
