Braves top pitching prospect Kyle Wright is being promoted to Triple-A

One of the Braves top arms in the minor leagues is about to be one step closer to the major leagues. The last few days have been a whirlwind in the minor leagues. With the reporting that Kolby Allard is supposed to be making his major league debut on Tuesday and other players been mentioned in trade rumors such as Luiz Gohara, there are going to be a lot of moving pieces in the minors. Well, while it seems pretty certain that Kolby will at the very least not be in Gwinnett for his next start (likely to make his major league debut), that leaves an open spot at Triple-A. It looks like Kyle...

Reports: Braves could trade Luiz Gohara to Rangers for Keone Kela, bullpen help

Kela has electric stuff and is signed for three more seasons.

The club has also been tied to veteran third baseman Adrian Beltre, although Beltre would have to waive his no-trade clause. As we know, Gohara had a brutal offseason in which his father died in his arms. He then...
