Braves to keep J.R. Graham in starting role
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Braves have no plans to move pitching prospect J.R. Graham into a minor-league relief role, MLB.com reports.

"We like him as a starter," said director of player development/assistant general manager Bruce Manno. "He has started before for us. He had a shoulder issue last summer and rehabbed during the rest of last season and in the offseason. He came to Spring Training healthy and ready to go. Our feeling is we'd like to have him remain as a starter."

Graham made just eight starts last season while dealing with a strained shoulder.
