Atlanta Braves Claim Outfielder Off Waivers

The Atlanta Braves have made a roster move to strengthen their outfield depth by claiming Dalton Guthrie off waivers from the San Francisco Giants.

After acquiring him, the Braves decided to option Guthrie to their Triple-A affiliate, the Gwinnett Stripers.

Despite limited opportunities in the major leagues, he has shown promise in Triple-A this season, boasting a .279 batting average, a .362 on-base percentage, and a .443 slugging percentage.

This move not only bolsters the Braves' organizational depth but also provides an opportunity to assess Guthrie's potential impact.

To make room for Guthrie on the 40-man roster, the Braves had to place right-hander Nick Anderson on the 60-day injured list due to a significant shoulder strain.

Anderson had been performing well as a reliever this season but will now be ineligible to return until early September. His absence will be felt in the Braves' bullpen, but the team is hopeful for his full recovery and return later in the season.

Over his 37 career games in the MLB, Guthrie holds a .244/.393/.333 triple-slash line, with one home run, five RBIs, one stolen base, and seven runs scored. Photo Credit: Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports
