Atlanta Braves Designate Donnie Veal for Assignment

The Atlanta Braves have designated reliever Donnie Veal for assignment for the second time this season. The team has recalled reliever Cody Martin from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Everyone expected this move after Veal gave up two earned runs in yesterday’s game against the Giants. The Braves were up 3-2 with a runner on second when Veal entered and after two hits and three runs the lefty was removed from the game. Luckily for Veal the Braves would pull off a ninth inning comeback.

Veal, 30, has given up seven earned runs in just 4 1/3 innings this season.

Martin, 25, got off to a good start for the Braves but started to struggle as the innings added up.  He has a 4.12 ERA in 19 2/3 innings this season.
