PHOENIX – The Braves promoted lefty Dylan Lee from Triple-A Gwinnett to their major-league roster Wednesday as part of a series of transactions. Lee, 27, will make his MLB debut if/when he enters a game.

The team also recalled utilityman Orlando Arcia from Gwinnett, placed right-hander Edgar Santana on the paternity list and placed righty Touki Toussaint on the bereavement list.

Lee was a 10th-round pick of the Marlins in 2016. He signed a minor-league deal with the Braves early this season, a move that went largely unnoticed but has been a quiet success. The southpaw posted a 1.58 ERA with a 52:6 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 45-2/3 innings with the Stripers.

Lee’s gaudy strikeout numbers and consistent production earned him Wednesday’s call-up, where he’ll join a bullpen that used six pitchers in Tuesday’s win over Arizona.

Santana is the third Braves player to go on the paternity leave since late August, following catcher Travis d’Arnaud and reliever Luke Jackson.
