Braves release Wandy Rodriguez
The 36-year-old, at spring training with a minor league contract, became expendable when Atlanta acquired Trevor Cahill from Arizona on Thursday night.
Rodriguez is 91-94 with a 4.06 ERA in 10 seasons with Houston and Pittsburgh. He was competing with Eric Stults for the final starting slot in Atlanta's rotation and was 2-0 with a 3.13 ERA in six exhibition starts.
The Braves also released catcher Jesus Flores and reassigned veteran right-hander Chien-Ming Wang to their minor league camp.
