Hursh was outrighted to Double-A Mississippi on Wednesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. This move cast Hursh off the Braves' 40-man roster. He hasn't appeared in a big-league game this season, instead spending a majority of this season at the Triple-A level. Across 39 games with Gwinnett, he logged a 3.98 ERA and 1.58 WHIP with 45 strikeouts in 52 innings.
Hursh was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday. Hursh made nine appearances at the major-league level last year, and despite a 5.06 ERA, the results were much better than during his previous brief stint in the majors. He'll open the year again in the minors but could always be called upon as a bullpen depth option.
Hursh was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to serve as the Braves' 26th man for their doubleheader Wednesday with the Phillies. Hursh has previously made nine appearances as a reliever for the Braves this season, logging a 5.06 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 10.2 innings. He'll provide the team with some extra length out of the bullpen, but it's not expected that he'll be used in high-leverage situations if the Braves have other options available to pitch. The right-hander will only be available for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader.
Hursh was recalled by the Braves on Thursday. The back-and-forth season continues for Hursh, who returns to the big leagues for the second time this month and the fifth time this season. The 25-year-old righty will likely provide depth in the Atlanta bullpen in low-leverage situations, but has been solid over 5.2 innings with the Braves thus far, allowing just one run on five hits in that short span.
Hursh was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday. The 25-year-old reliever will return to the minors now that both Sean Rodriguez and Danny Santana are back from the DL. Hursh didn't make a single appearance during this most recent cup of coffee in the big leagues, but his strong showing earlier in the season could help him jump back into Atlanta's bullpen later in the summer.
