While David Justice, Greg Maddux, and Steve Avery are three popular Braves who share a birthday on this date, a lesser-known Brave is also celebrating today.
Minor league relief pitcher Cory Gearrin was born on April 14, 1986 in Chattanooga, Tn. Cory, who made his major league debut last April 25, is currently in AAA Gwinnett-where he pitched two scoreless innings tonight against Durham. The side-arm slinger allowed no hits while striking out three as the Braves beat the Bulls. Hopefully Gearrin can earn his way back up to the big club at some point this season.
