Eury Perez DL’d (broken hand); Braves release Frasor

Outfielder, Eury Perez was placed on the Triple-A Gwinnett Braves’ disabled list Saturday, a day after getting hit by a pitch that broke his left hand.

Perez hit .269 with a .331 OBP and four doubles in 47 games (133 plate appearances) for the Braves this season before the 25-year-old rookie was optioned to Gwinnett last week when the Braves recalled catcher Christian Bethancourt.

Perez excelled at Gwinnett, batting .297 with a .370 OBP and 28 stolen bases in 64 games.

Frasor released: The Braves released veteran reliever Jason Frasor, who went on the disabled list Aug. 4 with a strained shoulder. Frasor signed a free-agent contact for the rest of the season with the Braves on July 16, after being released by the Royals.

The 38-year-old right-hander pitched well for the Braves, allowing three hits and no runs in 4 2/3 innings over six relief appearances, but Frasor developed shoulder soreness less than three weeks after signing with the Braves and hasn’t pitched since.
