The Braves have released reliever Cory Gearrin, who missed the 2014 season after having Tommy John surgery on his elbow during spring training.
Gearrin was a fourth round draft pick out of Mercer in the 2007 amateur draft. He first made the big leagues in 2011 and pitched in 18 games. Gearrin was solid in 22 games during 2012, as he posted a 1.80 earned run average. Then in 37 games in 2013 Gearrin had a 3.77 ERA.
Last March Gearrin was close to winning a job in the big league bullpen when he popped his elbow ligament.
The Braves now have 36 players on the 40-man roster, giving the team flexibility to add players in trades or free agency.
