Following Thursday’s win over the Miami Marlins, the Atlanta Braves optioned left-hander Tucker Davidson back to the alternate training site. Davidson was called up on Wednesday when Max Fried was placed on the injured list to give the team another multi-inning relief option out of the bullpen.

Davidson didn’t get into a game during this stint with the major league club. He made one start at the end of last season allowing three hits and two earned runs in just 1 2/3 innings.
The Braves have not yet announced a corresponding roster move but will need a starter to take Fried’s start on Sunday. Atlanta will begin a five-game road trip on Friday with a three-game series at Wrigley Field against the Cubs. From there they will travel to New York where they will take on the Yankees.
