Update: Jean Segura has been placed on the bereavement list.
This is terrible news, as the Milwaukee shortstop is heading to the Dominican Republic to deal with the death of his nine month old son. All our best wishes for Segura and his family to overcome this tragedy. Elian Herrera was recalled to take his spot on the roster, and can provide some defensive depth in Segura's absence.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
