Braves optioned third baseman Andy Marte to Triple-A Richmond.
The Braves felt they needed a 13th pitcher, and Wilson Betemit deserves to start at third base. Marte might return in 10 days, depending on Betemit's performance and Rafael Furcal's shoulder. Until then, both Kelly Johnson and Pete Orr can back up Betemit at third base. Jun. 25 - 1:05 pm et
