37 – number on camp roster after Manny Acosta was cut
The right-handed reliever was optioned to Class AAA Gwinnett on Saturday.
Manager Bobby Cox said the Braves would make more cuts Sunday and/or Monday as they whittle the roster to 25 before opening day.
Acosta allowed five hits, four runs and four walks in three innings over his last three spring appearances, and his good arm and 10 strikeouts (in seven innings) this spring weren’t enough for the Braves to consider keeping him on the opening-day roster.
He issued three walks in his final spring appearance Thursday against Pittsburgh, and took the loss in that gave after blowing a save in his previous appearance.
