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' 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' Alberto Callaspo, Cameron Maybin starting on Wednesday

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/13/15) Braves catcher Alberto Callaspo and center fielder Cameron Maybin are in the starting lineup on Wednesday, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Callaspo will replace A.J. Pierzynski behind the plate while Maybin takes Eric Young's place. Callaspo is hitting .218 with seven RBI in 87 at-bats this season while Maybin is hitting .225 with 12 RBI in 71 at-bats. The Braves are currently the underdogs (+115) against Cincinnati.

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 push C A.J. Pierzynski back to sixth in Monday lineup

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/11/15) Slumping Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski is set to bat sixth Monday night in Cincinnati. He had been batting cleanup before his recent struggles at the plate.

Pierzynski, who sat Saturday and Sunday behind Christian Bethancourt, has just one hit in his last 16 at-bats. His average has fallen from .439 to .323 over the last six games.
