Braves recall AJ Minter and Bryse Wilson

The Braves add some pitching depth to the active roster after rosters expand.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Milwaukee Brewers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Braves announced Tuesday that they have recalled pitchers A.J. Minter and Bryse Wilson before their second game of the series against Toronto.

Because rosters expanded on September 1, the Braves do not need to make a corresponding move to make room on the active roster. The Braves’ active roster now has 31 players.

Minter has struggled during his time in the majors this season after serving as a closer for much of the 2018 season. He posted a 7.24 ERA, 4.39 FIP, and 16.8% walk rate over 27.1 innings before being demoted to Triple-A Gwinnett. Minter has fared much better in Triple-A, as one would hope. Most encouraging is that his walk rate has been just 3.2% over 22.2 innings in Gwinnett.

Wilson’s results during his time in the majors this season have not been great, but he has shown glimmers of promise. He has a 6.75 ERA over four starts for Atlanta, but the 21-year-old showed off his potential in a July 3 start against the Phillies, going six innings and allowing just five hits and two runs. Wilson performed well in Gwinnett this season, posting a 3.42 ERA over 121 innings.
