BravesCenter's Bill Shanks talks with right-handed reliever Lance Cormier.
Braves place Cormier on DL, promote Moylan
After noticing some bleeding in the area overnight, Cormier informed the Braves, who promptly placed him on the 15-day disabled list.
Cormier has been one of Atlanta's most reliable relievers, posting a 3.00 ERA in 15 games. He's 2-1 on the season and has allowed 11 hits in 15 innings of work.
To replace Cormier on the roster, the Braves recalled right-hander Peter Moylan from Triple-A Richmond. Moylan had been up earlier in the year and pitched in one game with Atlanta, allowing only one hit and striking out one. Moylan has pitched in six games in Richmond and has struggled with a 7.27 ERA. He's allowed 7 runs on 11 hits in 8.2 innings.
