Tyler Pastornicky continued his hot spring Thursday, going 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI.
The Braves opted to retain Paul Janish and sign Ramiro Pena over the winter, leaving no room on the roster for Pastornicky. He remains a long shot to make the team even with Janish now set to start the year on the DL. Still, he's been impressive in hitting .404/.475/.615 with 13 RBI in 52 at-bats. He might turn into a nice piece of trade bait if he keeps hitting in the minors.
