  • Braves' Ray Kerr: Moved to 60-day IL

    Atlanta transferred Kerr (elbow) to the 60-day injured list Friday.

    The transaction frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of outfielder Eli White. Kerr is out for 2024 and perhaps all of 2025 after having Tommy John surgery last month.

  • Braves' Ray Kerr: Headed for Tommy John surgery

    Manager Brian Snitker announced Monday that Kerr (elbow) will require Tommy John surgery, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Kerr was moved to the 15-day injured list earlier in the day due to a UCL injury, and Snitker confirmed shortly after that the lefty will undergo surgery to repair the ligament. With the news, Kerr's 2024 campaign will officially come to an end after posting a 5.64 ERA and 1.61 WHIP with a 27:7 K:BB across 22.1 innings. He'll likely also miss a good chunk of the 2025 season depending on how he fares during his rehab.

  • Braves' Ray Kerr: Goes on IL with UCL injury

    Atlanta voided Kerr's option to Triple-A Gwinnett and placed him on the 15-day injured list with a left elbow UCL injury.

    Kerr had been sent down to Triple-A on June 15, but he never made an appearance for Gwinnett following the demotion, so the transaction has been rescinded. Atlanta hasn't provided much detail regarding Kerr's injury, but UCL damage is often a precursor to Tommy John surgery.

  • Braves' Ray Kerr: Sent out to Triple-A

    Atlanta optioned Kerr to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Atlanta will swap the left-handed Kerr out of its bullpen for a right-hander in Grant Holmes, whose contract was selected from Gwinnett in a corresponding move. After making a pair of spot starts in late May, Kerr shifted into a relief role this month and gave up three earned runs on eight hits and four walks over 5.1 innings spanning four appearances.

  • Braves' Ray Kerr: Back in bullpen Wednesday

    Kerr tossed 2.1 innings of relief in Wednesday's 9-0 loss to the Red Sox, giving up two earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out two.

    Kerr had started in both of his previous two appearances, but he shifted back to the bullpen this week while Atlanta opted to scale back to a five-man rotation following Monday's off day. With starter Spencer Schwellenbach getting chased from the game midway through the fifth inning while Atlanta faced a 5-0 deficit, Kerr immediately allowed a run-scoring double and then walked a batter before inducing an inning-ending flyout to leave the bases load. The run he let in was tacked on to Schwellenbach's final line, but Kerr was charged with two runs of his own when he served up a 361-foot home run to Rafael Devers in the bottom of the seventh with a runner on base. Assuming Atlanta isn't yet ready to pull the plug on Schwellenbach as its No. 5 starter, Kerr looks set to remain in the bullpen as a lower-leverage, multi-inning option.

  • Braves' Ray Kerr: Surrenders three runs in loss

    Kerr (1-2) took the loss against the Nationals on Thursday, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks over 3.2 innings. He struck out seven.

    Kerr struck out three of the first four batters he faced, but things began to unravel for the 29-year-old in the top of the third after he hit Jacob Young with a pitch. The lefty would end up surrendering three runs in the frame on two hits and a walk while also plunking another batter. Kerr has allowed at least three runs in each of his first two starts, taking the loss on each occasion. He also hasn't gone more than four innings in any of his outings with Atlanta.

  • Braves' Ray Kerr: Starting Thursday

    Kerr will start Thursday's game against the Nationals, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Reynaldo Lopez was originally scheduled to start Thursday's series finale, but Atlanta will instead give Kerr another shot after he allowed five earned runs in four innings during his first MLB start last Friday in Pittsburgh. The 29-year-old southpaw owns a 5.40 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 13.1 innings this season and has never pitched more than four innings in a game throughout his career.

  • Braves' Ray Kerr: Promoted, starting Friday

    Atlanta recalled Kerr from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Friday's game at Pittsburgh.

    The left-hander was optioned to Gwinnett following Monday's twin bill against the Padres but will be allowed to quickly rejoin the big club as AJ Smith-Shawver (oblique) lands on the injured list. Kerr's four appearances for Atlanta this season have all come out of the bullpen, but he's pitched well with a 2.89 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 10:0 K:BB across 9.1 innings. He threw 64 pitches over 3.1 frames in his last outing and figures to face some workload limitations since that was his longest outing of the campaign. Kerr could piggyback with Darius Vines, who was called up Monday but has yet to appear in a game for Atlanta.

  • Braves' Ray Kerr: Returned to Triple-A

    Kerr was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett after Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Padres.

    Kerr had a shaky performance his last time out Sunday against the Padres, surrendering two runs on four hits while striking out four over 3.1 innings of work. He'll return to Triple-A following Monday's move, where he's posted a 4.50 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with 22 strikeouts over 14 frames.

  • Braves' Ray Kerr: Recalled from Triple-A

    Atlanta recalled Kerr from Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday, Grant McAuley of 929 The Game reports.

    Kerr holds a 4.50 ERA and an impressive 22:5 K:BB across 14 innings this season with Gwinnett. He will give manager Brian Snitker another left-handed bullpen option while Tyler Matzek (elbow) is sidelined.

  • Braves' Ray Kerr: Sent to minor-league camp

    Atlanta optioned Kerr to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

    The 29-year-old was acquired from San Diego for Matt Carpenter and cash in December but won't make Atlanta's Opening Day roster. Kerr had a 4.33 ERA in 22 relief outings for the Padres last season, and he allowed three runs with an 8:1 K:BB over 4.2 innings during Grapefruit League play this spring.

  • Braves' Ray Kerr: Sent east in trade

    Atlanta acquired Kerr, Matt Carpenter (elbow) and cash considerations from the Padres on Friday in exchange for Drew Campbell.

    Kerr carries an ugly 5.06 ERA in 29 career major-league appearances, but he delivered a promising 2.25 ERA with 42 strikeouts across 36 innings with Triple-A El Paso in 2023. The hard-throwing 29-year-old lefty reliever could blossom in Atlanta's vaunted pitching system.

  • Padres' Ray Kerr: Summoned from El Paso

    The Padres recalled Kerr from Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday.

    Kerr will join the big-league bullpen as a replacement for right-hander Steven Wilson, who was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with left hip inflammation. The 28-year-old southpaw has previously made 13 relief appearances for the Padres this season, compiling a 6.28 ERA and 1.53 WHIP over 14.1 innings.

  • Padres' Ray Kerr: Optioned to El Paso

  • Padres' Ray Kerr: Gets call to majors

    The Padres recalled Kerr from Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday.

    Kerr will give the Padres another left-handed option out of the bullpen after the Padres moved southpaw reliever Tim Hill (finger) to the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move. The 28-year-old Kerr has previously made eight appearances for San Diego this season, giving up five earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out seven over eight innings.

  • Padres' Ray Kerr: Optioned to minors

    San Diego optioned Kerr to Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.

    The move comes a day after Kerr was charged with a blown save as a result of serving up a 10th-inning, game-tying, two-run shot to Matt McLain that led to another Padres defeat. Kerr has struggled to keep the ball in the park while with the big club this season, serving up three homers in eight innings. San Diego made a number of other bullpen moves Saturday, placing Drew Carlton (elbow) on the injured list, activating lefty Tom Cosgrove from the 15-day IL and recalling righty Pedro Avila from Triple-A El Paso.

  • Padres' Ray Kerr: Blows save in 10th inning

    Kerr blew the save Friday against the Reds, allowing one earned run on one hit over one inning. He didn't record a walk or strikeout.

    Kerr was a spotted a two-run lead in the 10th inning, but he allowed a game-tying, two-run shot to Matt McLain, marking the first blown save of his career. The left-hander has made eight appearances across three different stints in the big leagues this year, but he's allowed three home runs across eight innings and sports an ugly 5.63 ERA.

  • Padres' Ray Kerr: Promotion imminent

    Kerr will be promoted from Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    With Reiss Knehr (elbow) landing on the injured list after filling in for Yu Darvish (illness) on Tuesday, Kerr will be called upon to provide much-needed depth to the Padres' bullpen. Kerr holds a 6.00 ERA and 1.17 WHIP through six innings in the majors this season.

  • Padres' Ray Kerr: Back in minors

    The Padres optioned Kerr to Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.
