Atlanta Braves Transactions: Cory Gearrin Optioned To AAA, Anthony Varvaro Recalled

Fredi Gonzalez will have a fresh arm for Wednesday's contest against the New York Yankees, as Goznalez' Braves look to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Bronx Bombers.

On Wednesday, the Braves announced that reliever Cory Gearrin has been optioned to AAA, and Anthony Varvaro has been recalled to take Gearrin's spot on the active roster.

Varvaro, who turns 28 in October, has pitched well for the Gwinnett Braves. Through 25.2 innings, Varvaro posted a 2.81 ERA, allowing 27 hits while issuing 12 walks and striking out 35. Though the WHIP (1.52) is concerning, Varvaro's strikeout rate has been very good. In his last 10 appearances, Varvaro has allowed 18 base runners in 13.2 innings while striking out 22.

Gearrin, who was just called up on Sunday, made two appearances for the Braves before being optioned back to AAA.
