Schreve was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday and was immediately called upon out of the bullpen by the Braves in their 7-0 loss to the Phillies. He tossed a scoreless inning in the outing, striking out two batters.
Schreve will provide the Braves with another lefty option out of the bullpen in September, and he already paid dividends Monday, striking out slugger Ryan Howard when the outcome was still in question. He was an absolute strikeout machine in the minors this season, whiffing 87 batters over 64 innings between Double-A Mississippi and Gwinnett. It may not be long before he becomes one of the top setup options for Craig Kimbrel.
