The Atlanta Braves swapped some rookies on Tuesday morning and recalled LHP Jared Shuster to Atlanta. The club also optioned right-hander Allan Winans to Triple-A Gwinnett following Monday night’s game.

The New York Mets handed Winans the first big league loss of his career on Monday, where he tossed 4.1 frames and allowed seven runs.
Jared Shuster, however, has not seen big league game action since June 24, when he faced the Cincinnati Reds. Shuster has more major league experience with nine starts and looks to add some bullpen strength.
