The Atlanta Braves brought back left-handed reliever Jesse Biddle from the injured list, while left-hander Jerry Blevins was designated for assignment Tuesday. The Braves also recalled right-hander Wes Parsons from Triple-A Gwinnett a day after right-hander Kyle Wright was optioned.
Biddle, 27, was out of action since late April with a right thigh contusion and right groin strain. He had a 3.18 ERA in 14 appearances and had allowed just two earned runs over his last 11 outings. Blevins, 35, had a 10.80 ERA in six outings for the Braves. The 13-year veteran gave up four runs in his last outing on May 7 against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Parsons, 26, had a 4.35 ERA in 12 outings earlier this season with the Braves and did not allow a run in four appearances at Triple-A. --Field Level Media
