Burawa gave up one hit and one walk in a scoreless seventh inning against Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday. Burawa has now given up zero earned runs in four straight appearances and has lowered his ERA to 1.29 on the young season. The 27-year-old is coming off a stellar 2015 campaign where he posted a 2.64 ERA over 64.2 innings between Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Double-A Trenton, and Triple-A Gwinnett. The 6-3 righty was called up briefly in 2015 and gave up nine earned runs over 13 innings; however, if he continues to be effective with Gwinnett, it likely won't be long before he receives another shot in the majors.
Burawa was optioned to Triple-A on Saturday. He was in the mix for a bullpen spot to begin the season, but instead, he'll likely be among the first callups from Gwinnett when the team needs a fresh arm.
The Braves made a flurry of roster moves with the expansion of the roster on Tuesday. Left-hander Manny Banuelos (elbow) was activated from the 15-day disabled list, and he'll start Tuesday's game against the Marlins. Additionally, right-handers Danny Burawa and Brandon Cunniff , as well as infielders Hector Olivera and Daniel Castro were recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett.
The Braves claimed reliever Danny Burawa off waivers from the Yankees, the team announced on Friday. The Yankees designated Burawa for assignment on August 5. The Braves will assign him to Triple-A Gwinnett.
The Yankees were busy with transactions Wednesday. They announced first baseman Garrett Jones was re-signed to a major-league deal after he was designated for assignment last week. Reliever Danny Burawa was designated for assignment Wednesday as part of the transactions, while reliever Caleb Cotham was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
