Braves recall reliever Cory Gearrin from minors

The Braves have recalled right-hander Cory Gearrin from Triple-A

Gwinnett to replace Julio Teheran, who was with the team for one

fill-in start.

Gearrin was 1-1 with a 7.85 ERA in 18 games with Atlanta in

2011. He is 3-0 with a 1.65 ERA and seven saves with Gwinnett this


The 26-year-old Gearrin joined the Braves’ bullpen for Monday

night’s game against the New York Yankees.

Teheran gave up four hits and four runs in 4 1-3 innings in

Sunday’s 12-4 loss to Toronto. He was optioned back to Gwinnett

following the game.

Teheran filled in for Tim Hudson, who missed a start due to bone

spurs in his left ankle. Hudson, who says his ankle feels better,

is scheduled to start Wednesday against the Yankees.
