Recker was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday, David O'Brien of the AJC reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran backstop was DFA'd on Sunday to clear a 40-man spot for the recently acquired Matt Adams, but Recker went unclaimed on waivers and will remain with the organization. With the way Tyler Flowers and Kurt Suzuki are producing with the Braves, Recker figures to be an organizational depth piece at Triple-A for the foreseeable future.

Recker was designated for assignment Sunday, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Braves needed a spot on their 40-man roster for Matt Adams, and Recker drew the short straw. The 33-year-old catcher went 1-for-7 for Atlanta earlier this season and was hitting only .178/.288/.444 in 14 games for Triple-A Gwinnett, so assuming he goes unclaimed on waivers Recker will probably return to Gwinnett.

Recker was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The backstop didn't see much playing time as the third option on the depth chart. Recker will camp out at Triple-A until he's needed again.

Recker is 1-for-7 and has started one game in 2017.

EDGE Analysis

As the Braves' third catcher, Recker's lack of playing time isn't too shocking. The 33-year-old slashed .278/.394/.433 in 112 plate appearances for Atlanta last season, but has taken a back seat to Tyler Flowers and Kurt Suzuki this season. While Flowers battled a hamstring ailment earlier this season, Recker saw a minor uptick in at-bats. Now that Flowers is healthy again, it's likely Recker will not see much action in the immediate future.

Recker was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Recker was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett roughly two weeks ago, but the Braves have decided to roster three catchers to open the 2017 season. The 33-year-old's opening stint with the big league club may be short-lived and he isn't likely to see much playing time.

Recker was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

This isn't entirely surprising, as the 33-year-old dropped to third in the pecking order of catchers after the Braves acquired Kurt Suzuki in the offseason. Recker is just a .200/.284/.350 career hitter, and will serve as organizational depth in 2017.

Recker agreed to a one-year, $800,000 contract with the Braves on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old will provide low-cost catching depth for the Braves, perhaps serving as the primary backup to Tyler Flowers to begin 2017. He enjoyed his best offensive season in 2016, batting .278/.394/.433, but he's a .200/.284/.350 career hitter and has never logged more than 189 plate appearances in a season.

Recker went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in the seventh inning off Mets starter Bartolo Colon, sparking a comeback for a 4-3 win.

EDGE Analysis

Colon had been dominating the Braves lineup through six innings, but Recker turned around and cut the lead to 3-2 with his second home run of the season. The veteran catcher is hitting a solid .286 on the year, although he's scored just four runs in 81 at-bats.

Recker (personal) went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI singles in Saturday's 7-3 victory over the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

The backstop made a successful return from the paternity list, driving in Adonis Garcia with a fifth-inning hit and adding a seventh-inning single that plated Matt Kemp and extended the Atlanta lead to the final margin of 7-3. Recker has hit safely in four of the six September games he's been active for, with five RBI over that span.

Recker (personal) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Recker joined teammate Freddie Freeman on the unofficial paternity list earlier in the week, but he'll return to make his first start since Sunday against the Mets. Recker will get the nod behind the plate, while batting sixth against the Nationals' Gio Gonzalez.
