The Braves are calling up left-hander Ian Krol from Triple-A Gwinnett, reports FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

Braves optioned LHP Ian Krol to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Krol had been competing for a spot as a left-handed reliever in the Braves bullpen. He certainly didn't do himself any favors in Grapefruit League play, posting a 12.71 ERA and 2.29 WHIP in his 5 2/3 innings. He'll try to right the ship at Triple-A.
Sat, Mar 26, 2016 09:09:00 AM

Braves acquired LHPs Ian Krol and Gabe Speier from the Tigers for OF Cameron Maybin and cash considerations.

Krol struggled to a 5.79 ERA in 28 innings with the Tigers in 2015. He's still just 24 years old, so the Braves at least have a southpaw that will theoretically have room to improve on his disappointing work this last season.

Tigers recalled LHP Ian Krol from Triple-A Toledo.

While Krol owns a spectacular 0.89 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 22/9 K/BB ratio over 20 1/3 innings at Triple-A, he simply has not been able to get the job done at the big league level this season. He'll work in middle relief for the Tigers.
