Braves recall reliever Gearrin from Triple-A

With their bullpen weary from a recent heavy workload, the Braves have recalled reliever Cory Gearrin from Triple-A Gwinnett for Sunday night’s game against the Cincinnati Reds.

The Braves optioned outfielder Wilkin Ramirez back to Triple-A Gwinnett to open a roster spot.

Gearrin  impressed team officials while posting a .158 opponents’ average and 3.18 ERA in his first 10 major league appearances during a 3-1/2-week stint with the Braves through May 17.

The rookie sidearmer from Tennessee had 13 strikeouts and five walks in 11-1/3 innings. Right-handed batters were 2-for-23 with nine strikeouts against Gearrin,  who was optioned back to Gwinnett only because the Braves needed a roster spot for veteran reliever Scott Proctor.

“He was good,” said Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez, who smiled and added, “and he hasn’t pitched in four days, so he can give us five or six innings [Sunday].”

Braves relievers worked 18-1/3 innings in three games over the past four days, including 8-2/3 innings of one-run ball from five relievers in Saturday’s 12-inning win after starter Derek Lowe lasted 3-1/3 innings.

Jonny Venters, Scott Linebrink and Eric O’Flaherty all were “off-limits”  for Sunday night’s game, Gonzalez said. Venters and Linebrink worked two scoreless innings apiece Saturday, the fourth two-inning appearance for Venters in 11 days and the second in as many nights for Linebrink.

O’Flaherty had some lingering back tightness and was being rested for a second day as a precautionary measure. He’s had a history of back problems and does an extensive daily stretching and conditioning regimen to keep the situation under control.

Rookie starting pitcher Mike Minor, who starts Tuesday, was sent to the bullpen late in Saturday’s 12-inning game, in case the game had continued much longer. On Sunday, he was told to skip his usual between-starts side session and be ready again in the bullpen.

I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, http://GoGetBids.com

the crap they’re doing with minor is the same thing they did with medlen. leave him in a rotation somewhere and keep him stretched out. i dont care if hes in the minors or in the bigs, but quit this rotation, bullpen,rotation,bullpen-if-we-need-you, rotation nonsense.

Worship Gearrin. Kid throws well and his motion and delivery are confusing. We miss Moylan, but we are lucky to have this dude.

Go Braves.

I too was impressed w/ Gearrin. It doesn’t surprise me that Righties struggled against him (2 for 23). Most sidewinders are very tough on batters from their throwing side. The side-arm delivery is tough for batters on that side to pick up out of the pitchers hand. It also isn’t surprising that lefties have hot more success against him (4 outta 15). What makes them tough on their own side is what also leads them to struggle against the other side. Batters from the other side get a full view of the ball coming out of a sidewinders hand. That’s why I personally like to avoid have sidewinders face batters from the other side.

Watching the AZ @ Houston game. Ryan Roberts looks like a fool with that nonsense. Asian characters on your neck? Suburban, er, tribal sleeves all the way to the hands. Kids, think before you go off and do this foolery, it does not wash off. At least Hinske has the good sense to keep most of it covered up.

Tomahaw- Until Minor establishes himself as a legitimate starter in the rotation, he is going to be used when he is needed. This is very common among all teams with pitchers of his skill level. Now it would be one thing if the Braves had done this with Tommy Hansen, but it’s really not a big deal for Minor to start some games and pitch in relief in others. Especially when you consider that more innings for Linebrink will definitely result in more blown leads.

I am glad they recalled Gearrin, too. I enjoy watching him pitch. He does a good job.

Good thing Molyan & Medlen will be back at the end of the season, they might not have any arms left by the end of the season.

I guess that’s baseball Wilkin gets his 1st hit as a Brave & gets sent down just like Gearrin picked up his 1st win and was sent down after the game.

Karl before you start with the name calling, think before you speak. DOB edits that when he finds out who is going down. It obviously wasn’t there originally or they wouldn’t have been asking.

Side arms can be effective if the manager knows how to use them.Older lefty’s will do well. The less rigthy’s see him the more effective he will be.
