Conrad among September additions
After Monday night’s win over the Marlins, the Braves announced that Brooks Conrad, Luiz Valdez and Clint Sammons will join the big league club when the rosters are expanded on Tuesday.
Conrad instantly became a fan favorite with the energy he displayed while hitting .344 with two homers in 14 games with Atlanta earlier this year. The gritty infielder’s power potential could bolster Atlanta’s bench.
Sammons will provide the Braves a third catcher for the season’s final month and Valdez, who has notched 26 saves and posted a 3.33 ERA in 57 appearances for Triple-A Gwinnett this year, will provide bullpen depth.
