The Atlanta Braves continue to shuffle bullpen pieces. The team announced on Saturday that reliever Josh Ravin has been designated for assignment and will be replaced on the active roster by RHP Miguel Socolovich.

Ravin allowed two hits, two runs and a walk in two innings of relief in Friday’s loss to the Mets. That was the first action he had seen since being activated from the disabled list.
Ravin was DFA’d towards the end of spring training but went unclaimed on waivers and was outrighted to Gwinnett. He later earned his way back into the bullpen picture and rejoined the 40-man roster but went on the 10-day disabled list with a viral infection after making just one appearance.
Socolovich is making his second appearance on Atlanta’s 40-man roster since the season began. He pitched two scoreless innings in his only appearance with Atlanta this season. He made four appearances for Triple-A Gwinnett where he allowed nine hits and four earned runs over 6.1 innings.
