Cory Gearrin has been recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett. He will be in Atlanta for tomorrow's game.— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) June 10, 2012
Teheran was up to make a spot start with the Braves to give Tim Hudson a few extra days to get over an ankle issue he is having. Gearrin is 3-0 with a 1.65 ERA and seven saves at Gwinnett. He has experienced great command in 2012 striking out 38 batters in just 32 2/3 innings while walking eight.
