Braves recalled LHP Ryan Buchter from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Buchter was optioned to the minors earlier this week, but plans changed after Cory Gearrin's elbow injury. The 27-year-old southpaw had a 2.76 ERA and 103 strikeouts over 62 innings in Triple-A last year, but he also walked 51 batters. He has never pitched in a major league game.

He needed to be added to the 40-man roster in order to avoid the Rule 5 Draft. Buchter posted a 2.76 ERA while striking out 103 over 62 relief innings at Gwinnett this season, though control (51 walks) remains a major issue.
