James Loney granted release from Braves' Triple-A Gwinnett

ATLANTA (AP) First baseman James Loney has requested and received his release from the Braves' Triple-A Gwinnett team.

The 33-year-old Loney signed a minor league deal with the team on Thursday after the Braves learned first baseman Freddie Freeman will miss about 10 weeks with a fractured left wrist.

On Saturday, the Braves acquired Matt Adams from the St. Louis Cardinals. Adams was immediately inserted into Atlanta's starting lineup on Sunday, blocking Loney's path to the majors.
