Medlen to take Reyes' spot in Braves' rotation

By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Braves are moving left-hander Jo-Jo
Reyes to the bullpen and calling up right-hander Kris Medlen to
take his place in the rotation.

Manager Bobby Cox said Friday that Medlen, who is 5-0 with a
0.96 ERA at Triple-A Gwinnett, will be called up to start Tuesday
against Colorado.

Medlen is receiving the promotion instead of top prospect Tommy
Hanson, who is 1-3 with a 1.99 ERA at Gwinnett.

Medlen has allowed only 19 hits while striking out 44 batters in
37 1-3 innings.

Reyes is 0-2 with a 6.58 ERA in five starts.
