Left-handed relief pitcher Royce Ring has been designated for assignment, and right-hander Vladimir Nunez has been recalled from triple-A Richmond. Ring had been rather combustible this year putting up an 8.46 ERA in 42 appearances. His work lately has been especially poor, posting a 31.50 ERA since the All-Star break (14 ER in 4 IP covering 8 games).
Nunez was up briefly earlier in the season for Atlanta and pitched well with a 3.86 ERA.
I'm at the game today in the clubhouse and in the press box, so I'll have more later on including some updates on some of the injured Braves.
