Transaction Tuesday: S-Rod, Minter, Winkler, Freeman

Not a huge week in quantity of transactions this week, but plenty of interesting ones as three players begin rehab assignments and three others continue theirs. In addition, a draft pick from 2016 gets released while a former football player decides baseball is tough. Prospect Rankings reflect the preseason WOW list.

For the first time this season, the Braves have all seven minor league squads up-and-running. No longer will players get “demoted” to Danville just to get them off the active roster for a few days.

Elsewhere, one of Atlanta’s best young guns is back on the mound just a week after a liner had Braves fans holding their breaths after it struck him. A note on this report – moves referenced today took place between…
