MLB News: On Tuesday the Atlanta Braves recalled infielder Tyler Pastornicky from Triple-A Gwinnett and optioned right hander David Carpenter to the same affiliate. Pastornicky is expected to act as a utility infielder for the time being.
Fantasy Ramifications: Pastornicky will not see enough at-bats to even warrant consideration in fantasy baseball leagues as a player to lean on. As far as Carpenter is concerned, he may or may not make it up again before September. Neither Braves player should be owned.
