Jose Bautista's Florida Fire Frogs career is over.
After two games over the weekend in Single-A ball, the 37-year-old slugger has been promoted to the Atlanta Braves' Triple-A affiliate, the Gwinnett Stripers.
Bautista signed a minor-league deal with the Braves last week. Bautista led off in the opening half of Monday's doubleheader with the Rochester Red Wings.
In two games in Florida, Bautista went 3-for-9 with a double, two runs scored and a pair of walks.
