The Atlanta Braves have been fairly busy the previous couple of days in managing their roster. Other than the spotlight transfer of signing Shane Greene to bolster their bullpen, they’ve recalled Bryse Wilson to start tonight’s game, signed Tanner Roark to a minor league deal, and have made a a number of shuffles between Gwinnett and the large league roster to make such strikes work.
Nevertheless, when the Braves made one of their last moves yesterday, it ended up leading to a free spot on the 40 man roster which led to a certain quantity of hypothesis as to who would fill it.
Sorry, Mitch Haniger commerce hopefuls….the transfer ended up being a bit much less impactful.
The #Braves at present claimed RHP Jay Flaa off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles. Atlanta’s 40-man roster is now full.

You might be excused in case you are not conversant in Jay Flaa as he has a grand whole of 1.1 innings on the main league degree throughout one singular look for the Baltimore Orioles. A cursory take a look at his minor league numbers reveals that he has been fairly robust towards opposing righties and appears to have had his fair proportion of points with giving up too many walks. The scouting report on him when he was drafted had him throwing a low 90’s fastball and an above common to plus slider that was his greatest pitch.
For a staff that wants right-handed assist/depth within the bullpen, this looks like an inexpensive declare and stash arm that might be useful because the season progresses.
