The Atlanta Braves made seven roster moves Thursday morning, cutting their spring roster to 40 active players.

Four players, including Brookwood grad Lucas Sims, were optioned to the Class AAA Gwinnett Braves. The 2012 first-round pick was joined on the G-Braves list by fellow pitchers Aaron Blair and Akeel Morris, along with infielder Johan Camargo. Pitcher Max Fried was sent to the AA Mississippi Braves, while pitcher A.J. Minter and infielder Travis Demeritte were assigned to minor league camp.
