Braves' Joe Dunand: Sent to minor-league camp
Dunand was reassigned Tuesday to minor-league camp by Atlanta.
Dunand will likely be a lineup option for Triple-A Gwinnett to begin 2023. The 51st pick of the 2017 draft hit just .214/.313/.342 in 90 games with Gwinnett and Triple-A Jacksonville before being claimed off waivers from the Marlins.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Joe Dunand: Clears waivers
Dunand cleared waivers Sunday and was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Braves' Joe Dunand: DFA'd Friday
Dunand was designated for assignment by Atlanta on Friday.
Dunand was claimed off waivers June 1 after he was designated for assignment by Miami, but he was once again DFA'd on Friday. The third baseman appeared in three games with the Marlins earlier this season and went 3-for-10 with a solo home run and two runs scored in those contests. The move opened a spot on the 40-man roster for Mike Ford, who was claimed off waivers by Atlanta on Friday. Dunand will now either get claimed by another team himself, remain with Triple-A Gwinnett or be released outright.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Joe Dunand: Scooped up by Atlanta
Atlanta claimed Dunand off waivers from Miami on Wednesday and optioned him to Triple-A Gwinnett.
Atlanta opened up room for Dunand on the 40-man roster by transferring catcher Manny Pina (wrist) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL. Dunand appeared in three games for Miami over two stints in the majors earlier this season, but he'll likely stick around at the Triple-A level with Atlanta for the remainder of the campaign if everyday infielders Austin Riley, Ozzie Albies and Dansby Swanson maintain health in the months to come....

Marlins' Joe Dunand: Loses 40-man roster spot
The Marlins designated Dunand for assignment Sunday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
With the Marlins needing to open up a 40-man roster spot to facilitate Avisail Garcia's return from the COVID-19-related injured list, Dunand ended up being the casualty. Assuming he goes unclaimed off waivers, Dunand will likely stay in the organization and stick with Triple-A Jacksonville. Dunand was recently optioned to the affiliate after he went 3-for-10 with a solo home run and a double during a three-game stint with the big club earlier in May.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Joe Dunand: Headed back to Jacksonville
Dunand was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Dunand was recalled Sunday to provide infield depth as the Marlins faced a number of injuries. However, Joey Wendle (hamstring) was activated Thursday, which alleviated the need for Dunand. Across 11 plate appearances with Miami this season, Dunand has three hits and a home run.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Joe Dunand: Called up from Triple-A
The Marlins recalled Dunand from Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Jazz Chisholm has been cleared to start at second base Sunday after he was spiked in the left leg in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Atlanta, but Miguel Rojas (calf) will be on the bench for the series finale. As a result, the Marlins were motivated to bring up some extra infield depth in the form of Dunand, who is back in the big leagues for the second time this month. Unless Rojas' calf issue forces him to the injured list, Dunand should be in line for a brief stint with the Marlins.... See More ... See Less

Marlins' Joe Dunand: Contract selected for MLB debut

Dunand is a 26-year-old with no major-league experience, but he's looked good through 14 games for Triple-A Jacksonville this year, hitting .255/.368/.426. He'll head straight into the starting lineup, batting ninth and playing third base against the Padres.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Joe Dunand: Recovers from thumb surgery
Dunand (thumb) returned to action for Triple-A Jacksonville on July 1 and is batting .194 with a 48.5 percent strikeout rate in his 10 games since rejoining the affiliate.
The 2017 second-round pick has struggled to get his timing back at the plate after thumb surgery kept him on the shelf for nearly two months. The 25-year-old doesn't possess a spot on the Marlins' 40-man roster, so even if he begins to perform better offensively, he may not be in the mix for a late-season promotion to the big leagues....

That translates to a 124 wRC+, a solid mark for a 22-year-old in his first full-season campaign in the Florida State League, which generally favors pitchers.... See More ... See Less
