Recker is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Recker caught the last two games for the Rockies, but will sit Sunday afternoon in favor of veteran A.J. Pierzynski. Recker wouldn't be a primary backstop on most rosters, but has gotten off to a good start in Atlanta, going 6-for-17 at the dish with two doubles.

Recker is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds, according to Kevin McAlpin of the Braves' Radio Network.

EDGE Analysis

Recker started the last three games behind the plate, but he will be held out Wednesday with the Braves playing a day game following a night game and facing a tough right-hander in Anthony DeSclafani. A.J. Pierzynski will serve as the Braves' catcher Wednesday afternoon.

Recker is in the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

With Tyler Flowers on the 15-day DL, it is likely that Recker gets the majority of the starts against left-handed pitching, while A.J. Pierzynski gets the starts against righties. The 32-year-old is 2-for-5 since having his contract selected by the Braves and will have a decent matchup with Cincinnati southpaw Brandon Finnegan (4.71 ERA).

Recker's contract was selected from Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The journeyman catcher hit .244/.348/.421 with eight homers in 197 at-bats with multiple organizations at Triple-A this year. Tyler Flowers was placed on the 15-day DL with a broken hand on Friday, and Recker figures to stick up with the Braves serving as A.J. Pierzynski's backup until Flowers is activated in mid-to-late August.

Recker is likely to be promoted from Triple-A Gwinnett, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Recker is an option to take Tyler Flowers' roster sport while he is out for 4-6 weeks with a broken hand. Over 197 at-bats at the Triple-A level, Recker has slashed .244/.348/.421, with 48 hits and 62 strikeouts.

Recker hit a walk-off home run in the 10th inning for Triple-A Gwinnett Wednesday. The home run was his fifth in his last 10 games.

EDGE Analysis

Recker has spent time with the Athletics, Cubs, Mets and Indians before being traded to the Braves in May. He has shown flashes of power at the minor league level, but it has never fully translated to the big leagues. The 32-year-old Recker will need an injury or trade of A.J. Pierzynski or Tyler Flowers to get a call-up to Atlanta.

Recker was traded to the Braves on Monday in exchange for cash considerations.

EDGE Analysis

Recker opened the year at Triple-A and that's where he's remained, hitting .246 with 10 RBI in 19 games (61 at-bats). The 27-year-old, who made 32 appearances for the Mets last season, will now join his third organization in the last two years, and he'll initially report to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Recker was assigned to minor league camp Friday.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Recker will begin the year in the minors, likely at the Triple-A level. The veteran will serve as organizational depth who could be recalled in the event of an injury.

Recker signed a minor league contract with the Indians on Friday that includes an invite to spring training.

EDGE Analysis

He will offer organizational depth at catcher, likely beginning the year at Triple-A, as he will probably be behind Yan Gomes and Roberto Perez on the depth chart. Recker has a little pop, hitting 15 home runs in 432 plate appearances over the last three years with the Mets, but he is just a .185 hitter for his career.

Recker was sent outright to Triple-A Las Vegas Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Recker made 32 appearances with the Mets this season, but the back-up catcher failed to register at least 100 at-bats in a season for the first time since 2012. He has the option to enter free agency this offseason, but he's unlikely to garner much interest after submitting a .125/.239/.213 slash line in 80 at-bats this season.
