Braves designated LHP Donnie Veal for assignment.

Veal was also DFA'd by Atlanta on May 5, but he passed through waivers unclaimed and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Gwinnett. Now he's off the 40-man roster again after allowing three earned runs in one inning of relief spread over two appearances.
Jun 1 - 2:01 PM

Braves purchased the contract of LHP Donnie Veal from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Veal was removed from Atlanta's 40-man roster earlier this month after allowed four runs over 3 1/3 relief innings. He'll give the Braves another lefty reliever after they traded Eric Stults and Ian Thomas.

May 8 - 4:41 PM

Braves designated LHP Donnie Veal for assignment.

Veal allowed four earned runs in 3 1/3 innings of relief with Atlanta, but he's a left-hander so he will probably draw some interest on waivers. The 30-year-old owns a 5.16 ERA in 68 career major league frames.
May 5 - 4:24 PM

Braves purchased the contract of LHP Donnie Veal from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Veal had made 10 scoreless appearances for Gwinnett, striking out 11 batters in 8 2/3 innings. Atlanta will hope he can bring that level of dominance with him to the majors. Veal, 30, owns a 4.87 career ERA in the bigs.
Apr 30 - 2:22 PM

Braves reassigned LHP Donnie Veal, C Braeden Schlehuber, and RHP Sugar Ray Marimon to minor league camp.

No surprises in this round of cuts. Veal logged only six innings at the major league level in 2014 and owns a rough 4.87 ERA in 100 career relief appearances.
Mar 23 - 9:15 AM

Braves signed LHP Donnie Veal to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Veal allowed five earned runs in six innings of relief this past season with the White Sox. The 30-year-old is doubtful to crack the Braves' Opening Day bullpen.

White Sox recalled LHP Donnie Veal from Triple-A Charlotte.

With Matt Thornton getting dealt to the Red Sox, there is a clear opening for a left-handed reliever on the roster, and Veal is the best in-house option that the White Sox have. The 28-year-old has posted an 8.59 ERA and 2.73 WHIP in 7 1/3 innings with the White Sox this season.
Fri, Jul 12, 2013 11:32:00 PM

Wed, May 22, 2013 11:44:00 PM

White Sox recalled LHP Donnie Veal from Triple-A Charlotte.

Veal posted a 4.26 ERA in 12 appearances with the White Sox earlier this season, but seems to be over his command issues. The 28-year-old will serve as a left-handed specialist.
Sat, May 18, 2013 12:47:00 PM

The White Sox are expected to call up left-hander Donnie Veal from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday.

Veal struggled with the White Sox earlier this season, but hasn't allowed a run in four appearances (eight innings) at the Triple-A level. The 28-year-old will provide bullpen depth as a left-handed specialist.
