The Braves released O'Brien on Monday.
ANALYSIS
According to David O'Brien of The Athletic, during the latter stages of summer camp, O'Brien was exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, derailing any hope he had of cracking the Braves' season-opening 30-man roster. Though O'Brien has presumably cleared all COVID-19-related protocols, the Braves evidently determined he wasn't worth keeping around at their alternate training site in Gwinnett. The Braves added 2020 fourth-round pick Spencer Strider to the 60-man roster pool in a corresponding move.
