The Braves Show's Bill Shanks talks with reliever Chris Resop.
Braves sell Resop to Japanese team
Resop, who was acquired off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels last winter, won a job in the Atlanta bullpen out of spring training. He pitched in 18 games at the big league level and had a 5.89 ERA. Resop allowed 12 earned runs on 16 hits in 18.1 innings, with 10 walks, and 13 strikeouts.
The Braves then designated him for assignment on May 26th. Resop passed through waivers and was assigned to Richmond in the International League. Resop pitched in nine games for the Richmond team and was 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA. He allowed three earned runs on 14 hits in 18 innings, with 12 walks, and 22 strikeouts.
