On Sunday, the Atlanta Braves recall Kameron Loe from the Gwinnett Braves and send down Tyler Pastornicky. The Braves signed Loe on May 11, 2013 after he was granted free agency the day prior by the Chicago Cubs.
Since acquiring the 31-year-old, Loe has pitched well in Gwinnett. Appearing in 21 games he has a 4-2 record with a 3.19 ERA. He’s thrown 42.1 innings and only gave up eight walks and two home runs – which has been his down fall since his MLB debut.
Loe will wear #40 for the Atlanta Braves. He posted this on Twitter this afternoon
@Braves fans and players in the clubhouse for the warm welcome to the team. Awesome fans and great group of dudes on this team.
Loe previously pitched in Major League Baseball for the Texas Rangers, Milwaukee Brewers, Seattle Mariners, and Chicago Cubs. At 6 feet 9 inches, Loe is one of the tallest players in the game.
In 24 at bats this season in Atlanta, Pastornicky has seven hits and a line of .292/.320/.333 but currently wasn’t enough to stay with the club. The 23-year-old still has a bright future and could possibly be trade bait in the upcoming weeks.
