Michael Kohn has been placed on Triple-A Gwinnett's disabled list with a right shoulder strain.

It's bad timing, as Kohn would've had a chance to be recalled later this week. How long he'll be sidelined isn't known at this time.

Braves optioned RHP Michael Kohn to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Kohn didn't surrender a hit or run over 4 2/3 innings with the big club, but he walked six and that's surely the reason for his demotion. Williams Perez has taken his spot in the bullpen.

Braves purchased the contract of RHP Michael Kohn from Triple-A Gwinnett.

He'll give the club another much-needed fresh bullpen arm. Kohn has struck out a batter per inning in parts of four seasons in the majors but has had a terrible time throwing strikes consistently.

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that the Braves will call up Michael Kohn and John Cornely prior to Friday's game in Philadelphia.

The club needs a couple fresh bullpen arms after their relievers were overworked in the series versus the Mets. Kohn held a 3.04 ERA in 23 2/3 innings with the Angels last season.

Braves reassigned RHP Michael Kohn to minor league camp.

Braves signed RHP Michael Kohn to a minor league contract.

The deal includes a spring training invite. Kohn elected to become a free agent after he was outrighted off the Rays' 40-man roster last month. The 28-year-old had a 3.04 ERA in 23 2/3 innings with the Angels this past season -- the Rays signed him and proceeded to DFA him in the span of a month -- and could win a spot in the Braves' bullpen in spring.

Michael Kohn has elected free agency.

The Rays inked Kohn to a one-year deal in October but then designated him for assignment in November. The right-hander has elected to look for a deal elsewhere rather than accept a Triple-A assignment.

Rays sent RHP Michael Kohn outright to Triple-A Durham.

He's now cleared waivers twice since September after being removed from a pair of 40-man rosters. Kohn should still have a shot to crack the Rays' Opening Day roster if he accepts the assignment in lieu of free agency.
Fri, Nov 28, 2014 10:17:00 AM

Rays designated RHP Michael Kohn for assignment.

The Rays just signed Kohn last month, but the right-hander will now be eligible for the Rule 5 Draft. The 28-year-old holds a 3.67 ERA with 107 strikeouts across 110 1/3 frames at the major league level, though he's also walked 73.

Rays signed RHP Michael Kohn to a one-year contract.

Kohn elected free agency last month after being removed from the Angels' 40-man roster. The 28-year-old holds a 3.67 ERA with 107 strikeouts across 110 1/3 frames at the major league level, though he's also walked 73. He should be able to crack the Rays' Opening Day roster next season as a middle reliever.

Michael Kohn has elected to become a free agent.

Kohn was designated for assignment by the Angels last week but passed through waivers and has now chosen to test the open market. The 28-year-old right-hander posted a decent 3.04 ERA in 23 2/3 innings this season for Anaheim and should be able to find a spot in a major league bullpen heading into 2015.

Angels designated RHP Michael Kohn for assignment.

Kohn posted a 3.04 ERA in 23 2/3 innings this season for the Angels, but that came alongside a troubling 26/20 K/BB ratio. The righty is now off the 40-man roster.

Angels optioned RHP Michael Kohn to Triple-A Salt Lake.

He has been replaced on the active roster by the newly-acquired Rich Hill. Kohn owns a 3.04 ERA and 26/20 K/BB ratio over 23 2/3 innings with the Angels this season.
