Braves sent RHP Juan Jaime outright to Triple-A Gwinnett.
It's a tad surprising that he cleared waivers, as there's usually always one team willing to take a shot on a guy who can tough the upper-90s with his fastball. However, it appears that not only the Braves are skeptical about Jaime's ability to ever throw strikes consistently. Apr 24 - 8:07 AM

Braves designated RHP Juan Jaime for assignment.

Jaime throws hard, but he just hasn't been able to find the plate consistently in the majors or minors. It's possible some team will take a shot on the 27-year-old on waivers.
Apr 13 - 4:16 PM

Juan Jaime walked three and gave up four runs in two-thirds of an inning Friday against the Nationals.

Jaime is 27 and entering his third year on the Braves' 40-man roster, but it doesn't look like the team is ready to count on him as a bullpen piece. He has one of the strongest arms in the league, but he walked 45 in 53 1/3 innings between Triple-A and the majors last year. We're not very optimistic that he'll ever be of much use.
Mar 6 - 5:48 PM

Braves recalled RHP Juan Jaime from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Jaime owns a 2.25 ERA and 13/5 K/BB ratio in eight appearances this season at the major league level. He'll give the Braves some extra bullpen depth down the stretch and try to prove himself worthy of a postseason roster spot. Of course, Atlanta has to make the playoffs first.

Braves optioned RHP Juan Jaime to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Braves recalled RHP Juan Jaime from Triple-A Gwinnett.

He'll take the place of Evan Gattis (back) on the active roster. Jaime made four appearances with the Braves earlier this season and has posted a 2.30 ERA, 13 saves, and a 41/20 K/BB ratio over 27 1/3 innings in Triple-A this year. He'll pitch in middle relief.

Braves optioned RHP Juan Jaime to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Jaime allowed just one earned run and struck out seven batters in four innings of relief for the Braves. The 26-year-old right-hander has also been impressive this season as the primary closer for Gwinnett. He's sure to get another shot in Atlanta soon.

Braves recalled RHP Juan Jaime from Triple-A Gwinnett.

He'll replace Pedro Beato on the active roster. Jaime has been pitching as the closer in Triple-A this year, posting a 2.39 ERA, 17 saves, and a 40/20 K/BB ratio over 26 1/3 innings. He has a big arm, but struggles to throw strikes with consistency.

The deal covers the rest of 2011 and the 2012 season, according to MLB Trade Rumors.

Diamondbacks designated RHP Juan Jaime for assignment.

Jaime posted a 2.27 ERA and 11.4 K/9 over 31 2/3 innings in 2009 for a Single-A affiliate of the Nationals, but he hasn't pitched since. The 24-year-old might pass through waivers and wind up back with Arizona.

Diamondbacks claimed RHP Juan Jaime off waivers from the Nationals.

Jaime was outrighted off the Nats' 40-man roster earlier this week despite posting a 2.42 ERA and 146 strikeouts over 111 2/3 career major league innings in Washington's farm system. He might be able to climb his way into the Diamondbacks' bullpen with a strong spring training.
