|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) With Alex Wood scratched with a stomach virus, the Braves promoted left-hander Ian Thomas from Triple-A Gwinnett for some insurance. Thomas has tossed 15 2/3 scoreless innings in the minors this season, per MLB.com.
In a corresponding move, the Braves optioned third baseman Adonis Garcia down to Triple-A. Garcia made just two big-league appearances and had only one at-bat.

|(5/19/15) The Braves officially called up Cuban infielder/outfielder Adonis Garcia from Triple-A on Tuesday, giving the 30-year old his first-ever taste of the Major Leagues, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
“I want to thank God and the organization for being called up,” Garcia said through translator Eddie Perez, the Braves’ bullpen coach. “Ten years ago when I was in Cuba, my dream was to play in the big leagues. I left Cuba four years ago, so now I’m so happy to be here.”
The roster spot opened up Monday when the Braves placed Phil Gosselin (fractured thumb) on the 15-day disabled list.
Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Garcia would primarily serve as a pinch hitter while with the Braves.
This year was Garcia's 11th as a minor leaguer, posting a .306 career batting average.

|(5/18/15) The Braves have placed infielder Phil Gosselin on the 15-day disabled list due to a fractured thumb, the team announced Monday.
Gosselin is expected to undergo surgery on the injured thumb on Wednesday. He's expected to be sidelined for about eight weeks while recovering, which should put him out through the All-Star break.
Gosselin has hit .325/.357/.425 with two stolen bases in 40 at-bats.
The Braves will select the contract of infielder Adonis Garcia to replace Gosselin on the active roster. He has hit .351/.380/.455 with one home run, 21 RBI and two stolen bases in 134 at-bats with Triple-A Gwinett while playing third base and left field.
