Kris Medlen Called Up!

Posted by m1fournier on May 15, 2009

krismedlenThe Braves have decided to call up right handed pitcher Kris Medlen and not Tommy Hanson, to replace the struggling Jo-Jo Reyes today.

From the article:  Right-handed pitching prospect Kris Medlen will make his major-league debut Tuesday against the Colorado Rockies, in place of the struggling Jo-Jo Reyes. Braves manager Bobby Cox announced the decision Friday afternoon. The Braves will move Reyes to the bullpen. Medlen has a 5-0 record with a 0.96 ERA for Class AAA Gwinnett, sizzling numbers to get him the nod over his teammate and fellow prospect Tommy Hanson, who is 1-3 with a 1.99 ERA.

It will be interesting to see how long this move lasts and also how well Medlen does in his first start. The move of replacing Jo-Jo Reyes isn’t a surprise, but a think the surprise is that the Braves called up Medlen and not Hanson. For Medlens spot, we are not sure if he will replace James Parr or someone else who might go on the DL, well know more sooner.

We will be tracking his progress in the upcoming weeks.
