KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Right-hander James Parr, who had a 5.79 ERA in eight games with the Atlanta Braves in 2009, has been optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett.

The Braves trimmed 13 players from their major league roster in their first major round of cuts in spring training.

Pitchers Lee Hyde, Steve Marek, and Todd Redmond also were optioned to Gwinnett.

The team optioned pitchers Juan Abreu, Kyle Cofield, and Jose Ortegano to Double-A Mississippi. Six players were assigned to the minor league camp: pitchers Erik Cordier, Chris Resop and Mike Minor, catchers Braeden Schlehuber and Jesus Sucre and outfielder Cody Johnson.
