Braves Call up Vizcaino; Release Scott Proctor

By: Kyle Chambers

It seems as if the Braves are opening another book in the franchise while closing another. This morning the Braves announced the release of the struggling Scott Proctor and the addition of one of the “untouchable 4” pitchers in Triple-A Gwinnett.

Vizcaino had only been in Gwinnett for about two weeks and was already impressing every body at that level while putting up a 1.29 ERA. On the year Vizcaino had made his way from Lynchburg to Mississippi to Gwinnett.

This year, with all three minor league stops combined, Vizcaino went 5-5 with a 3.06 ERA. Opponents batted just .225 against him. He started this year as a Starting Pitcher. However, halfway through this season the Braves made the decision to turn him into a reliever where they thought he would be more comfortable.

As for Proctor, he was a very nice guy. I have several autographs from him just because he would always take time to talk to the fans after games and practices. He just couldnt find his command this year like he had in years past. I wish him the best going forward in his career.
