As expected, the Atlanta Braves have activated reliever Chris Martin from the injured list. Martin has been sidelined since April 4 due to shoulder inflammation. To make room on the active roster, the team optioned Bryse Wilson back to Gwinnett.

Martin lasted just two-thirds of an inning against the Phillies back on April 4 before exiting with what was described as numbness in his fingers. He was later diagnosed with shoulder inflammation. He recently completed a rehab assignment at Gwinnett where he made three appearances while allowing four hits and three runs over 2 2/3 innings. Martin is in the final year of a two-year deal that he signed with the club in November of 2019. He has pitched well in parts of three seasons in an Atlanta uniform posting a 2.65 ERA and a 2.07 FIP in 37 1/3 innings.

Wilson was promoted to make the start on Tuesday and pitched well allowing six hits and two runs over six innings. He will slot back into Gwinnett’s rotation for the time being.
