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.

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.

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.

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.
