It looks like the Braves have going to do whatever it takes to get the bullpen to perform up to expectations. While they have been significantly better than they were, recent performances from Dana Eveland and Nick Masset were iffy at best and after Sunday's loss to the Phillies where both players played a role in the loss in the 10th inning, the Braves made the move

Arodys Vizcaino, a former top Braves prospect before Tommy John surgery and a trade to the Cubs and back, just recently finished serving an 80 game suspension for PEDs. However, he also features a fastball that hits triple digits and was in line for a significant role in the bullpen before his suspension was announced. He just completed his rehab assignment this week and there was some speculation as to whether or not he would join the club immediately.
David Carpenter, no, not the former Braves traded to the Yankees in the offseason, has been a bit of a journeyman spending time with multiple organizations, in particular the Angels, before landing in Gwinnett this season. The 27 year old right-hander has an 0.73 ERA in 27 games this season at Gwinnett.
