Recker was outrighted off the Twins' 40-man roster Friday, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old spent the bulk of the season with Triple-A Gwinnett before being traded to the Twins along with Jaime Garcia. Recker slashed .223/.301/.381 in 139 at-bats for Gwinnett this season, and posted even worse numbers in his few opportunities with the Braves. The veteran catcher is unlikely to be more than organizational depth for Minnesota and currently holds no fantasy value.

Recker was traded to the Twins on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The backstop was an add-on in a deal that ultimately netted the Twins left-hander Jaime Garcia. Recker recently spent time in the big leagues while Kurt Suzuki was away from the team, but the 33-year-old has largely been an organizational depth piece for the Braves. He'll now join the Twins' organization, likely to fill a similar role.

Recker was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

With Kurt Suzuki returning from the bereavement list ahead of Monday's contest, Recker's services were no longer needed at the big-league level. The 33-year-old didn't appear at all during this most recent cup of coffee with Atlanta, so he'll head back to the minors to act as organizational depth.

Recker was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett after Thursday's game, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kurt Suzuki is on the bereavement list and will return to the club Monday. Recker will provide depth behind Tyler Flowers for the weekend and probably will be optioned again once Suzuki rejoins the depth chart.

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.
