Cairo Native Called up to the Majors

The trade of Ryan Langerhans to the A's brought about a sullen atmosphere to the Braves clubhouse. Langerhans was a popular teammate, but recently, he struggled to produce.

On the other hand, Willie Harris has been tearing up the Minor Leagues. The utility man had a .362 average in Richmond, VA, the Class AAA affiliate for the Braves.

Harris is most remembered for scoring the decisive run in the 2005 World Series. He was then honored with a parade in his hometown of Cairo, Georgia. However, the former starting second baseman has struggled to stay in the Majors recently. He is likely to split some time in the outfield with Florida State alumnus Matt Dias.
