Braves send reliever to Gwinnett

Braves relief pitcher Shane Carle’s latest stint in the big leagues lasted just two days. 

Carle, who was recalled from Gwinnett on Tuesday, was returned to the Triple-A team to make room on the Braves’ roster for Thursday’s starting pitcher Mike Soroka.

Carle, a right-hander, pitched one inning against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night, allowing no hits or runs but walking two.

He opened the season with the Braves but was sent to Gwinnett on April 5. Across his two brief big-league stints this season, he has pitched in four games, allowing three hits and five earned runs in 4-2/3 innings (9.64 ERA) while walking seven and striking out two.
