LINCOLN -- The Atlanta Braves have taken over the contract of Lincoln Saltdogs pitcher Joe Bisenius. The American Association’s strikeout leader has reached the big leagues before, playing for the the Phillies organization in 2007 and Washington Nationals. Over his last five starts, Bisenius had struck out 41 hitters while walking just five. The Saltdogs have now had two players purchased by MLB organizations in the past two weeks. Infielder Dennis Raben was signed by the Kansas City Royals. Lincoln has signed 42 players to big league clubs since 2001, and 16 since the beginning of 2011 (most in the American Association).
