With the start of the 2017 season right around the corner, the Braves continue to trim their spring training camp roster.
Boyer, a native of Atlanta, had been with the Braves organization since being selected by Atlanta in the third round of the 2000 draft, until 2009 when he went to St. Louis. He had been with several teams since, before joining the Braves for spring camp this preseason on a minor league contract in January.
The Braves released RHP Blaine Boyer today. The club has 36 players in camp.
