The Atlanta Braves announced that they have added right-hander William Woods as their 27th man for Tuesday’s doubleheader against the New York Mets. Woods was optioned after Sunday’s game when the Braves trimmed their roster down to 26 players.

Woods made his major league debut on April 27 with a scoreless inning against the Cubs. He pitched again Sunday in Texas and allowed a pair of hits but escaped without allowing a run.
