Braves designate Brandon Jones for assignment

Brandon Jones, who was once considered one of the Braves top prospects, was designated for assignment to make room for Eric Hinske on the 40-man roster.

Jones, 26, hadn’t done much in recent years to justify keeping him around and after a decent spring spent most of last year in  Triple-A. He hit .281/.360/.419 with seven home runs and 57 RBI during his time there.

There figures to be plenty of teams such as Cincinnati, Kansas City and Pittsburgh interested in taking a flier on the guy so who knows maybe he will see the majors this season after all. I just wouldn’t count on him doing all that much.
