Hanson activated, Gearrin optioned to Triple-A
The Atlanta Braves have optioned to reliever Cory Gearrin to
Triple-A Gwinnett to make room for pitcher Tommy Hanson coming off
the disabled list.
Hanson, who had been sidelined by a lower back strain, started
Friday night’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Gearrin has pitched well for the Braves, but the team is going
temporarily to a six-man rotation to cope with a stretch of 20
games without an off day. Gearrin allowed only one run in 11 1-3
innings, a 0.79 ERA.
