Sanders Commings’ time with the Atlanta Braves organization has come to an end after the former Georgia defensive back was released Sunday.

Commings announced the Braves’ move on Twitter.

“I would like to thank my hometown Braves for granting me an opportunity to chase my dreams,” Commings wrote. “Classy organization with a great future.”

Commings played outfield for Atlanta’s Rookie Advanced level minor league affiliate Danville Braves. He was hitting .154, with two hits and one RBI in six games played.

Commings, who signed with the Braves in February, was drafted in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. He only played in two games because of injuries, both of which came during his rookie season in 2013.

Commings, a three-year starter at Georgia, had 154 tackles and eight interceptions during his Bulldogs career. He did not play baseball at the school.

In addition to thanking the Braves, Commings vowed on Twitter to continue pursuing a career in professional baseball.
