the 40th overall (sandwich round) pick of the Braves in the 2008 draft was just released by the Braves. DeVall is 21 years old and has a career 3.92 ERA, although he has been limited to 160 IP in Class A over the last two years due to elbow troubles.

My guess is, like another former HS sandwich round pick, his elbow has to be in pretty bad shape for them to cut bait so soon. I'd like to at least bring the kid in for a physical. If we're going to keep Lotzkar around, might as well get a left-handed Lotzkar as well. Certainly no worse than a lottery ticket at this point.

The Braves released left-hander Brett DeVall, a sandwich-round pick in 2008 (40th overall), tweets Matt Eddy of Baseball America. DeVall is still only 21, but elbow troubles limited him to just 160 innings at Class A Rome the past two seasons, according to Eddy. For his career, DeVall has a 3.92 ERA, 6.3 K/9 and 2.3 BB/9. Atlanta selected DeVall with the pick it received for the loss of Ron Mahay - whom it acquired with Mark Teixeira from Texas - to free agency following the 2007 campaign.

The Marlins released right-handed reliever Brett Sinkbeil, according to Eddy (on Twitter). Sinkbeil, the 19th overall selection in 2006, spent 2010 on the Marlins' 40-man roster and boosted his strikeout rate to 8.0 K/9 as a reliever at Triple-A.

Should the Reds take a look at Brett Sinkbeil? Any word on Brett DeVall?
