Braves release C Wil Nieves from Triple-A club
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Braves have released veteran catcher Wil Nieves from Triple-A Gwinnett, per Baseball America.

Nieves was designated for assignment in early May, but opted for free agency. He then signed a minor league deal with Atlanta that reportedly had a July 1 opt-out date, but the Braves have since chosen to release him.

The Braves indicated their feelings about Nieves when they acquired fellow catcher Ryan Lavarnway to back up starter A.J. Pierzynski after demoting Christian Bethancourt.

Nieves, who opened the season in the majors with San Diego, owned a slash line of .238/.324/.286 at Gwinnett before losing his job.

Braves sign veteran catcher Wil Nieves to minors deal
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Braves have reportedly signed veteran catcher Wil Nieves  to a minor league contract, according to MLB.com. Nieves elected free agency after he was designated for assignment by the Padres earlier this month. He had one hit (a home run) in 13 at-bats before being let go.

Nieves will provide the Braves with catching depth. Currently, veteran A.J. Pierzynski and rookie Christian Bethancourt have been sharing time behind the plate for manager Fredi Gonzalez. The two have combined to hit .254 with three home runs so far, with Bethancourt really struggling offensively (he has just nine hits in 52 at-bats).

Manager Bud Black said Monday Hedges will make a start during their series against San Francisco.

Nieves was hitting just .077 with one home run and four RBI in 13 at-bats this season.
