      Chris Stewart was traded from the Braves to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday, Robert Murray of The Athletic Wisconsin reports.Stewart appeared in just five games for the Braves before being traded, struggling to an unsightly .214/.250/.214 slash line. He put together a similarly poor line with Triple-A Gwinnett, slashing .219/.299/.277 across 47 games. The veteran backstop should serve as organizational catching depth for Arizona.

      Braves' Chris Stewart: Resting Wednesday

      Chris Stewart is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals.With Tyler Flowers (oblique) on the disabled list and Kurt Suzuki (hand) not expected back in the lineup until Friday, Stewart has temporarily taken over as the Atlanta Braves' primary catcher, starting each of the past four contests. Manager Brian Snitker will give Stewart a much-needed rest for the Wednesday afternoon affair, allowing Carlos Perez to make his team debut behind the dish. Assuming Suzuki is ready to go Friday, it appears likely that Stewart will see only a couple of starts per week going forward.

      Braves' Chris Stewart: Could break camp with Braves

      Chris Stewart is still in the running for the final spot on the Atlanta Braves' Opening Day roster, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.With Johan Camargo (back) headed for the DL, the Braves are deciding between an additional utility player like Danny Santana, or a third catcher in Stewart, which would allow the team to use Tyler Flowers and Kurt Suzuki as late-game pinch hitters. For his part, Stewart has had a decent spring in his limited opportunities, going 4-for-12, but the 36-year-old is highly unlikely to see enough playing time to have any real fantasy value even if he does win the job.
