As expected, the Atlanta Braves He brought left fielder Kolby Allard back from the 60-day injured list. Wednesday’s series final will start against Minnesota Twins. To make room on the active roster, Atlanta optioned Derrick Rodriguez back to Gwinnett.
The Braves reacquired Allard from the Rangers last season in the deal that sent Jake O’Dorizi to Texas. He appeared twice during the spring before suffering a minor injury that forced him to start the season on the injured list. He made two rehab appearances at Gwinnett allowing a combined six hits and two runs scored in 6 2/3 innings pitched. Allard has 65 career appearances in the majors and has a 6.07 ERA and 5.36 FIP in 232 2/3 innings pitched.
Rodriguez was called up to the active roster Monday as the new arm after the ball was pushed hard over the weekend in Cincinnati. He did not enter any games during this period.
