Braves add reliever Pedro Beato to roster

Pedro Beato was signed and added to the roster today, with the corresponding move being Ryan Buchter's demotion to triple-A.

Beato spent most of last year in triple-A with the Red Sox but will get an opportunity in the bigs, at least for a bit, with the Braves. For his career he has a 4.55 ERA and a -0.3 WAR.

He primarily throws fastball variations, with a four seamer and cutter being his primary pitches. He also throws a changeup, which still clocks in at an average of 86 mph. He threw 67 inning with the Mets back in 2011.

Buchter never got to pitch with the big league team, but he may get a shot down the line as he is currently third on the lefty depth chart after Luis Avilan and Ian Thomas.
