Braves make some spring cuts
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com (3/14/2014)The Braves have reassigned 13 players Friday.
Pitcher Aaron Northcraft will go to Triple-A. Matt Lipka, RHPs Jason Hursh, J.R. Graham, Yunesky Maya, Mark Lamm, Cody Martin, Edward Salcedo, Hector Daniel Rodriguez, Matt Kennelly, Jose Yepez, Braeden Schlehuber and 1B Mark Hamilton will head to minor-league camp.
None of the moves are surprising, as the 13 players were not expected to make the opening day roster.
