by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com (3/24/2013) The Braves pared down their roster Sunday, reassigning pitchers Sean Gilmartin and Wirfin Obispo to their minor-league camp. Gilmartin is viewed as one of the club's top pitching prospects and will open the season in the rotation for Triple-A Gwinnett.
Gilmartin again nothing special
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer (3/8/2013) Braves left-hander Sean Gilmartin, who allowed four runs on six hits over three innings in his last spring appearance Saturday, wasn't quite as bad Friday at the Astros, but he wasn't especially good either. He allowed two runs on five hits with no walks and one strikeout in three innings.
Gilmartin knocked around

Gilmartin did strike out three batters and his spring ERA is now at 7.20 after two appearances.
Gilmartin with sharp performance
by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com (2/24/2013) Atlanta starting candidate Sean Gilmartin pitched very well during his spring debut on Sunday against Pittsburgh. Gilmartin entered following starter Julio Teheran and was impressive with two scoreless frames. He allowed just one hit in the outing and struck out two batters for the Braves.
Gilmartin competing for spot
(2/11/2013) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez told MLB.com on Monday that Juilo Teheran and Sean Gilmartin will compete for the final spot in the rotation this spring. Teheran, who appeared to be the favorite for the job, has a career 5.19 ERA in seven appearances (four starts) in the majors. "Especially with young kids, I'm not big on anointing them by saying 'You're the guy and here it is,'" Gonzalez said Monday. "With a young kid, I think you still need to show them there is a carrot out there and you've still got to compete. The other guys read newspapers, too. Gilmartin, give him a good chance to compete."
