Schuerholz, son of Braves GM, invited to camp

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves will have a familiar name at
spring training -- Jonathan Schuerholz.
The son of longtime Braves general manager John Schuerholz was
one of 14 non-roster players invited to camp on Tuesday.
Schuerholz, who can play second base and shortstop, split last
season between Double-A Mississippi and Triple-A Richmond. He
batted .278 with four homers and 21 RBI at Mississippi but
struggled after being promoted to the R-Braves, hitting .175 with
no homers and 12 RBI in 44 games.
The Braves also invited catcher Eddie Perez and outfielder Brian
Jordan to their major league camp. Both agreed to minor league
deals last week.
The first workout for pitchers and catchers is set for Feb. 17,
with the rest of the squad taking the field five days later at the
Braves' Disney World complex in Kissimmee, Fla.
