It's the moment that every young prospect dreams about, hopes after, and works tirelessly for. The day that the big club has a roster spot available, and calls them up for a look-see. Top farmhand Joey Terdoslavich got that call from the Atlanta Braves, and he finally has the chance to show off his skills in front of MLB.
Just imagine, your first game in the big leagues...on July 4th.

The Atlanta Braves have placed outfielder Jordan Schafer on the 15-day disabled list and called up outfielder Joey Terdoslavich from Triple-A Gwinnett. Schafer fouled a ball off his foot against Kansas City on June 29 and it has not responded to treatment. Schafer says that he can walk and jog okay but is unable to run. On the season, Schafer is hitting .312, with a .399 on-base...
After fouling a ball off his right ankle in Kansas City, Jordan Schafer has not been able to return to full speed. The Braves are hoping some time on the 15-day disabled list will help the young, resurgent outfielder return to form.
The franchise placed the 26-year-old on the DL with a right ankle contusion Thursday afternoon.
Schafer received sporadic playing time (two pinch...

In order to fill his roster spot the Braves have promoted Joey Terdoslavich from Triple-A. Terdoslavich, 24, has hit .318/.359/.567 with 18 homers and 58 RBI in 85 games this season at Gwinnett.

Considering he's dealing with an oblique injury, the Atlanta Braves are expected to play it safe with Evan Gattis' recovery. While there's not currently a set timeframe for his return, Gattis took a big step back yesterday as he completed roughly 20 pain-free swings in the indoor batting cage of Turner Field, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com.
The pain-free cuts...
The Atlanta Braves amassed 16 hits as they defeated the Miami Marlins 11-3 on Tuesday night. The 16 hits by the Braves is the most they have had this season. Their 11 runs is also the most runs they have scored without hitting a homerun. It looked like it may be a long night for the Braves, as the Marlins jumped out to an early 2-0 lead. Kris Medlen walked Giancarlo Stanton,...
it rained alllll night
Totally didn't go up to our real seats (my church bought group tickets), and instead said hi to an usher friend and sat under cover. We couldn't see the scoreboard but we had TVs overhead that even showed replays! So that was cool.
Remember how I have plans to open a t-shirt shop? Well, I wore my #36 sample shirt last night and Alison had to talk me...
Atlanta Braves right-hander Brandon Beachy logged two successful side sessions over the weekend, but neither outing was extended.
Yesterday, Beachy threw a lengthier bullpen session that lasted roughly 10
minutes and was viewed by pitching coach Roger McDowell and bullpen coach
Eddie Perez, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com.
Beachy continues to feel good in his recovery...
ATLANTA Here are three things we learned from the Braves' 11-3 win over the Marlins, the club's fourth straight victory and largest hitting output of the season (16 hits):
1. For Kris Medlen, 'tis better to be somewhat shaky and lucky ... than very good and snakebitten
In the postgame media scrum, Medlen (three runs, nine hits allowed over six innings) was the first...
The Atlanta Braves placed outfielder Jordan Schafer on the 15-day disabled list Thursday morning with a right knee contusion.
As reported by Mark Bowman of MLB.com,
"Schafer has had limited mobility since fouling a pitch off his ankle
last week on June 26 in Kansas City. The versatile outfielder favored
his right leg while running to first base during the two pinch...
The Atlanta Braves dropped their second straight game in soggy conditions with a 4-3 loss to the Miami Marlins on Independence Day. Here are three observations from the game:
1. A rare Craig Kimbrel loss sealed the deal for the Braves
The Braves bullpen held on as long as it could, but the Marlins eventually found a way to push the game-winning run across -- a bloop single to...
Likely all star Craig Kimbrel surrendered the go-ahead run to the Marlins in the final game of the series.
If there is anything more inexplicable than the feast or famine offense for the Braves, it is the way they can sweep one of the better teams in baseball and then drop the following series to presumably the worst team in baseball. That is precisely what happened in the 3-game...
ATLANTA Here are three things we learned from the Braves' 6-3 loss to the Marlins on Wednesday, aside from the drainage system at Turner Field has few peers in baseball circles:
1. The genesis of Mike Minor's undoing was a walk to Marlins pitcher Ricky Nolasco
For 4 23 innings, Minor bore the look of a burgeoning ace, allowing just one hit and striking out seven. But then...
Friday was the start of an important 10-game stretch for the Philadelphia Phillies. With the fourth-oldest roster in the majors, and a so-so first-half of the season at best, decision-makers have to evaluate the Phillies postseason chances before making any decisions ahead of the July 31 trade deadline.
Are they buyers or sellers?
With just over week before the All-Star break, this...
Cliff Lee, who had thrown six innings of shutout baseball, exited Friday after giving up a three run home run that put the Braves within two runs. They would get one more in the inning but the Phillies held on to beat the Braves 5-4. J.C. Ramirez cleaned up the mess that Lee made in the seventh.
The offense was able to put up five runs on Braves starter Paul Maholm, and...
