|Braves recall David Carpenter |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/30/13) The Braves recalled reliever David Carpenter from Triple-A Gwinnett Tuesday.
Carpenter will take the spot of Luis Ayala, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with an anxiety disorder. Carpenter is 1-2 with a 3.52 ERA through 15 1/3 innings in the minors. He has yet to make an appearance with the Braves this season.

(4/20/13) The Braves recalled pitcher David Carpenter from Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday to fill the roster spot vacated by second baseman Blake DeWitt after he was placed on the disabled list. Carpenter, who was one of Atlanta's final cuts during the spring, posted a 1-2 record and 4.76 ERA over four relief appearances for Gwinnett.
|David Carpenter, Mitch Stetter fighting for Angels' bullpen |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(3/26/13) David Carpenter and Mitch Stetter are fighting for the final spot in the Angels' bullpen.
The team could also send Garrett Richards to Triple-A to act as an emergency starter, but he has a 1.88 ERA in 14 1/3 innings this spring.
Carpenter has been bothered by a back injury during the spring, which pushed his debut back to March 17.
Stetter was a non-roster invite to camp, and has been strong against lefties over his career.
|Braves begin to finalize roster |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(3/26/13) The Atlanta Braves announced Tuesday that Jordan Schafer has made the opening day roster, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Atlanta optioned infielder Tyler Pastornicky, outfielder Jose Constanza and reliever David Carpenter to Triple-A Gwinnett.
Braves skipper Freddi Gonzalez said Pastornicky, who hit .375 this spring with two homers and 14 RBI over 56 at-bats, remains a valuable piece for the team. He will play second, shortstop and some outfield in the minors. He'll play mostly second after Paul Janish returns.
The 26-year-old Schafer hit .241 this spring with four stolen bases. The speedster will be a backup outfielder.
|After a horrendous 2012 season pitching for the Blue Jays and Astros, David Carpenter bounced back in 2013 and emerged as one of the Braves' most-reliable relievers. Carpenter wouldn't join the Atlanta bullpen until mid-May, but thrived once getting his opportunity. Carpenter would go 4-1 with a 1.78 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 56 appearances. He also struck out 74 batters in 65 2/3 innings and finished tied for third on the team with 12 holds. Carpenter didn't get his first hold until Aug. 2, but he managed 12 over his last 29 appearances after Atlanta moved him into a late-inning role. Carpenter might have to compete for holds with Luis Avilan, Jordan Walden and Jonny Venters in 2014, which could limit his opportunities. Therefore, Carpenter might be just a low-end option in Fantasy leagues that reward for holds.
