    Jesse Biddle is packing his things. Looks like he’ll be the move to create a roster spot for Toussaint.

    Biddle has been terrible this year. I didn't even like dropping Blevins for him, Blevins is better.

    The Braves announced that they’ve designated left-hander Jesse Biddle for assignment on Wednesday and placed center fielder Ender Inciarte on the 10-day injured list due to a lumbar strain. Biddle’s 40-man roster spot will go to top prospect Austin Riley, whose previously reported promotion has now been made official. Atlanta also recalled Touki Toussaint from Triple-A Gwinnett to round out tonight’s series of roster moves.

    As much as I liked Biddle last year, this move had to be made. He didn't even look good in his AAA rehab IMO.

    How many games did Biddle cost us this year so far? Between him and Minter, we’d be in first place right now. Seemingly by several games...

    They both combined to cost us big time, just not sure the exact number as in some games others were involved too.

    I have to admit I like that lineup. I'd put Neck at 1 and Acuna at 2 but not really that important.

    If Albies can figure out his left handed swing or just hit right handed then that lineup should hit. We will see how it fields. It seems like everyone who scouted Acuna said he could play a very good CF....not sure I've seen that yet but he's young. I think Riley will be at least as good as Comargo, but that isn't saying a ton.

    I'm sure Comargo is not happy about this move. Guy keeps getting squeezed for plate appearances. Not sure yet if Comargo is the guy who can be super utility. SOme guys can't. Read an article today about La Stella and his improved performance when he plays consistently. That is why I think Culberson is under rated. Culberson has proven he can not play for long periods of time and just come in and produce. That is a tough role.

    The loss of Viz for the year gave Minter more games to blow too.

    Even if you could look at it that way you are still assuming the guys who replace Biddle/minter would have succeeded. And you can’t.
