Eric Duncan, who was perhaps the Mississippi Braves’ steadiest player from start to finish in 2010, is among the minor league free agents cut loose by Atlanta. Duncan, a former New York Yankees first-round pick, settled in as the M-Braves’ second baseman early in the year and hit .267 with eight home runs and 64 RBIs. Also on the list as published by Baseball America are 2010 M-Braves Orlando Mercado, Michael Daniel, Luis Bolivar and Christian Colonel. Ex-M-Braves James Parr and Clint Sammons, who were on the roster at Triple-A Gwinnett, also became free agents. It’s now unlikely any of them will return to the organization in 2011. Mauro Gomez, who led the M-Braves with 16 homers and 80 RBIs, would have been a free agent but had previously re-signed with the Braves. … Four former Mississippi college players are on the free agent list: pitcher T.J. Beam (Ole Miss), pitcher Roy Corcoran (Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College), infielder Edwin Maysonet (Delta State) and outfielder Jonathan Van Every (Itawamba CC).
