Wisler was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.
Luke Jackson was sent to the disabled list with a shoulder strain, so Wisler was summoned back to the big club to take his place on the roster and in the bullpen. The 24-year-old has a 2.84 ERA and 4:2 K:BB in 6.1 innings of relief with Gwinnett since being shifted to the bullpen. He has the stuff to become an effective late-inning reliever, so he'll be worth keeping an eye on in his new role.
Wisler will transition to the bullpen at Triple-A Gwinnett, Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Despite some flashes of success as a starter in the minors, a 5.12 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, 199:98 K:BB and 1.4 HR/9 in 284.2 career big-league innings have prompted the Braves to re-evaluate whether Wisler has a place in their future rotation, especially considering the sheer volume of top-shelf pitching prospects moving quickly up the ladder behind him. The 24-year-old righty has the stuff to become an effective late-inning reliever, and he'll likely get a month at Triple-A to acclimate to his new role before getting called back up in September.

Wisler, who was recalled by the Braves on Monday, had a short and difficult stint in the big leagues, as he allowed four earned runs on five hits over two innings in Monday's blowout loss to Arizona. The right-hander now owns an 8.53 ERA over 19 innings in the majors this season and will need to turn things around at Gwinnett if he hopes to see similar opportunities in the future. Aaron Blair, the scheduled starter for Wednesday's game, was recalled in a corresponding move.
Wisler was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.
Wisler was summoned back to the big club to offer bullpen reinforcements after Arodys Vizcaino was placed on the DL with a finger strain. The 24-year-old owns a 7.00 ERA and 3:3 K:BB through nine innings out of the Braves' bullpen this season. He has strictly served as a starter this season for Gwinnett, so he'll provide some length as a reliever before ultimately returning to Triple-A to continue being developed as a starter.
Wisler was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday, MLB.com reports.
Called up from Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday to make his first start of the season for the Braves in the second game of a twin bill with the Mets, Wisler was able to effectively eat some innings for the big club. He conceded four runs on six hits and three walks in the outing, but covered six frames and struck out seven batters along the way. Unfortunately for Wisler, fellow Triple-A call-up Sean Newcomb outperformed him while starting the first game of the doubleheader, and will have the opportunity to stick around as the club's fifth starter while Bartolo Colon (oblique) remains on the disabled list. Expect Wisler to reclaim a spot in the rotation at Gwinnett, with whom he's posted a 5.01 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 41.1 innings this season.
