Braves purchased the contract of OF Matt Tuiasosopo from Triple-A Gwinnett.
Tuiasosopo hasn't appeared in the majors since 2013, when he hit .244/.351/.415 in 191 plate appearances for the Tigers. He'll operate as a backup outfielder for Atlanta.
Braves recalled RHP Mike Foltynewicz from Triple-A Gwinnett.
Folty will start against the Mets on Monday and could stick around for a while if things go well. He was sporting a 2.05 ERA in four starts this season, though it has come with a rough 5.7 BB/9 (or 14 walks in 22 innings). His ongoing control issues make him a poor fantasy streaming bet against a good Mets offense.
Braves optioned RHP John Gant to Triple-A Gwinnett.
Gant has already been up and down a couple times this year. He owns a 7.04 ERA in 7 2/3 innings.
Braves signed LHP Sean Burnett to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Gwinnett.
Burnett inked a minor league deal with the Dodgers in early April but exercised his May 1 opt-out and will now join a team with maybe the worst bullpen depth chart in the league. He should move quickly to the majors and could even be pitching in high-leverage situations for the Braves by the end of the month. The veteran lefty had a very good showing this spring in Nationals camp and he was off to a pretty good start with the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate.
Red Sox optioned INF Marco Hernandez to Triple-A Pawtucket.
The move opens up a roster spot for Carson Smith, who will join the Red Sox bullpen on Tuesday after missing the first month of the season with a flexor muscle strain. Hernandez was only in the majors for a couple days.
