As expected, the Atlanta Braves recalled right-hander Bryse Wilson and he will start the first game of Sunday’s doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals. Wilson will be taking the place of Tucker Davidson who was placed on the injured list earlier this week with inflammation in his left forearm.

Wilson has made five starts at the major league level for the Braves this season posting a 4.38 ERA and a 5.97 FIP in 24 2/3 innings. His last start came on May 22 against Pittsburgh where he allowed five hits, one run and struck out four in a season-high 6 2/3 innings. Wilson has made six starts at Gwinnett logging a 4.36 ERA in 33 innings.

The Braves have not yet announced who they will add as the 27th man for the doubleheader but that should be coming soon. Atlanta optioned reliever Jacob Webb back to Gwinnett Saturday to open up a roster spot for Wilson.
