Braves inquiry about Jonathan Lucroy rebuffed by Brewers

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/22/15) With catcher Christian Bethancourt having a poor start to the season, the Braves inquired about Brewers starting catcher Jonathan Lucroy, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. However, the Braves were told he was unavailable.

Bethancourt began the season as the Braves starting catcher, but he was quickly replaced by veteran A.J. Pierzynski after he struggled at and behind the plate.

Braves' Christian Bethancourt doubles twice in win Thursday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/15) Braves catcher Christian Bethancourt went 3 for 4 with two doubles, one RBI and two runs scored in his team's 10-1 win over the Brewers on Wednesday.

Bethancourt isn't known for his offense, but he helped key a seven-run seventh inning that decided the outcome of the game. He had managed just nine hits on the season before coming through with the big performance on Wednesday. The catcher has hit .190/.215/.286 with five RBI in 63 at-bats.

Braves' A.J. Pierzynski, Todd Cunningham out of lineup Thursday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/15) Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski and left fielder Todd Cunningham are getting a rest and are being held out of the lineup on Thursday against the Brewers. 

Pierzynski had been behind the plate each of the last four games, but has struggled with the bat. He's hitting .185 (5 for 27) over his last seven games. He'll cede Thursday's start to rookie Christian Bethancourt.

Cunningham has been on a tear since being called up last week. In his first five games this season, the 26-year-old rookie is 9 for 19 with a pair of doubles. Nevertheless, he'll sit on Thursday with Jonny Gomes making the start in left while batting fifth.

Braves sign veteran catcher Wil Nieves to minors deal

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/13/15) The Braves have reportedly signed veteran catcher Wil Nieves  to a minor league contract, according to MLB.com. Nieves elected free agency after he was designated for assignment by the Padres earlier this month. He had one hit (a home run) in 13 at-bats before being let go.

Nieves will provide the Braves with catching depth. Currently, veteran A.J. Pierzynski and rookie Christian Bethancourt have been sharing time behind the plate for manager Fredi Gonzalez. The two have combined to hit .254 with three home runs so far, with Bethancourt really struggling offensively (he has just nine hits in 52 at-bats). 

Braves trying to turn around C Christian Bethancourt

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/9/15) Braves catcher Christian Bethancourt has lost his starting job. Hitting coach Kevin Seitzer is trying to help him find his swing.

Seitzer has been urging the 23 year old to stop swinging for the fences and start swinging for hits.

"Don't try to do too much," Bethancourt told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution when asked what Seitzer was telling him. "Try to use my hands, try to get back in my approach, and I should be alright."

Bethancourt has received more playing time since veteran replacement A.J. Pierzynski slowed down after a torrid start. But it hasn't helped. He is 3-for-26 with five strikeouts in eight games previous to Saturday. That lowered his slash line to .159/.196/.227.
