As everyone’s probably aware by now, the Braves released Craig Wilson, calling up Brayan Pena who will… I don’t know. See if he can wear a groove on the bench with his butt, I guess. Saltalamacchia will back up both McCann and Thorman. Chris Woodward is also considered a candidate for PT at first base, for no readily apparent reason.

Wilson’s shoulder never did heal right and I expect it will turn out to be the reason that he’s been so hopeless. On the other hand, he’s 30 years old and never was a star, and wouldn’t be the first guy to wipe out at that age, or the last.
