Braves recall LHP Dodd to start vs Phillies, place Tonkin on IL
ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves recalled left-hander Dylan Dodd on Thursday to start the opener of a four-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Dodd was making his fourth start for the Braves, coming in with a record of 2-1 with a 6.46 ERA in the big leagues.
He has split time between the majors and minors, going 1-3 with a 6.67 ERA at Triple-A Gwinnett. Atlanta has been forced to patch up its rotation after long-term injuries to Max Fried and Kyle Wright.
To make room for Dodd, the Braves placed right-handed reliever Michael Tonkin on the 15-day injured list with a strained neck, retroactive to Wednesday. He is 3-2 with a 3.42 ERA in 13 games.
