Vizcaino, 24, is coming off an 80-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s drug policy. He pitched one inning in a start for Triple-A, giving up two earned runs on three hits. This will be his first major league action since September 22nd of last year.
Carpenter, 27, has been great for Triple-A Gwinnett this season, posting a 0.73 ERA over 37 innings.
