Braves dispatch five to minors


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) The Braves have optioned right-handers Juan Jaime and Luis Vasquez, catcher Christian Bethancourt and center fielder Todd Cunningham to Triple-A and shortstop Elmer Reyes to Double-A. None of the moves are considered a surprise.

Braves unwilling to meet price for Jeff Samardzija, David Price


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) The Braves were unwilling to meet the Rays' asking price of pitcher Alex Wood, catcher Christian Bethancourt and at least two other top prospects to acquire David Price, nor were they willing to trade outfielders Justin Upton or Jason Heyward in a package for Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija, MLB.com reports.

The Braves instead signed Gavin Floyd to a one-year deal rather than trade multiple significant pieces to acquire a proven ace. It appears to be a seller's market with regards to starting pitching that could potentially be traded this offseason.


Braves face uncertainty at catcher


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2013) With catcher Brian McCann heading into free agency this offseason, the Braves face uncertainty at the catcher position for the first time in eight years. Manager Fredi Gonzalez indicated Wednesday that Evan Gattis, Gerald Laird and Christian Bethancourt are all in the mix for playing time behind the plate, MLB.com reports.

"Maybe not knowing what's going on, but you give Bethancourt a little chance and bring him along a little bit," Gonzalez told MLB.com. "Go with Gattis and Laird, and throw Bethancourt a bone every once in a while, put Gattis out in left field because we know that he can do it."

McCann played 92 games behind the plate in 2013, including 91 starts and 84 complete games. Gattis made 42 appearances and 38 starts at catcher while drawing 48 appearances (47 starts) in left field, as well as four appearances at first base. Laird was the only other Brave to draw playing time at catcher, making 40 appearances and 33 starts at the position.


Braves recall Christian Bethancourt


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2013) The Braves have recalled prospect catcher Christian Bethancourt, MLB.com reports.

Bethancourt is the final scheduled Braves callup of the season. The 22-year-old hit .277/.305/.436 with 12 home runs in 90 games for Double-A Mississippi.


Braves option Christian Bethancourt to Double-A


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2013) The Braves have optioned catcher Christian Bethancourt to Double-A.

The 21-year-old hit .243/.275/.291 in 288 plate appearances at Double-A last season. Catchers Evan Gattis and Gerald Laird will likely begin the year on the 25-man roster until Brian McCann is ready to return.


Bethancourt ready after setback


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2013) MLB.com reports Braves catcher prospect Christian Bethancourt, who was limited to half a season at Double-A Mississippi in 2012 because of a fractured left hand, could be in line to make the major-league roster in 2014. "I think if he would have been able to complete the full season there, I think it would've made a world of difference for him," Braves assistant general manager and director of player development Bruce Manno said of Bethancourt. "He's fine [health-wise], he went and played winter ball in the Dominican and was able to kind of make up some at-bats, so that helped quite a bit with the time he missed. He's a player who we really, we really like his defensive ability, and offensively we think he's going to continue to improve. We have to see where he is in his development in the spring before we decide what's going to happen to him [level-wise], because we just don't know without the full sample of a season last year."
