The Atlanta Braves announced a roster move prior to Thursday’s series finale against the New York Mets. Atlanta reinstated reliever Michael Tonkin from the injured list and optioned reliever Roddery Munoz back to Gwinnett.

The Braves placed Tonkin on the 15-day injured list with a strained neck on May 25. He struck out two in a scoreless inning in a rehab assignment Wednesday night for Gwinnett. Tonkin appeared to be on the roster bubble during the spring, but landed a spot on the Opening Day roster and has made the most of his opportunity as a multi-inning relief arm. He has appeared in 13 games and has a 3.42 ERA and a 4.50 FIP in 26 1/3 innings.

Munoz was added to the active roster Tuesday as a placeholder. He will return to Gwinnett where he has a 4.63 ERA and a 5.73 FIP in 23 1/3 innings so far this season.
