The Braves have released infielder Blake DeWitt, tweets David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Presumably, the club's signing of Tyler Greene earlier today left DeWitt without a roster spot.
Since signing a minor league deal with the Braves in the off-season, DeWitt has seen little playing time at any level due to a lower-back injury. He was brought up briefly early in the year, registering a double and sacrifice in four plate appearances for Atlanta. DeWitt's career line in the bigs -- most of it accrued with the Dodgers and Cubs -- stands at .257/.324/.381 over 1,247 plate appearances. The 27-year-old was a first-round choice of the Dodgers back in 2004.
