The Braves sent former Rhea County star Cory Gearrin back down to their Triple-A affiliate.
They replaced him with fellow reliever Luis Ayala, who came off the DL.
Gearrin had a 2-1 record with an ERA of 3.77.
But he has struggled of late.
Since June 6th, he has given up eight earned runs in seven innings of work.
In his last outing on Wednesday, he gave up two runs in a loss to the Marlins.
