2012 Braves Roster: Cory Gearrin Called Up From Triple-A Gwinnett

The Atlanta Braves called up reliever Cory Gearrin on Tuesday to temporarily take the roster spot of Jair Jurrjens who was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett Monday night after he struggled in his start against the Dodgers. Gearrin figures to stick with the Braves until the weekend when Tim Hudson will be activated in time for his scheduled start on Sunday.

Gearrin has been solid at the Triple-A level this season pitching 12-1/3 scoreless innings in 10 appearances for the Gwinnett Braves. Gearrin has 15 strikeouts against two walks on the season. He will give manager Fredi Gonzalez and extra arm to use out of the bullpen until Sunday. As a rookie in 2011, Gearrin had a 7.85 ERA in 18 appearances with the Braves.
