Braves Designate Ryan Church For Assignment

The Braves designated outfielder Ryan Church for assignment, tweets Bill Shanks.  The move was done to make room for Rafael Soriano, who accepted arbitration last night.  Church had been considered a non-tender candidate anyway after hitting .273/.338/.384 in 399 plate appearances for the Braves and Mets in 2009.  He earned $2.8MM in '09 and would've been due a raise through arbitration.
