Braves Cut Struggling LHP Redman

ATLANTA (AP) - The Braves have resumed the search for a fifth starter after releasing left-hander Mark Redman.

Former Number One draft pick Joey Devine was called up from Double-A Mississippi Tuesaday to help out in the bullpen.

Redman was an All-Star with Kansas City in 2006 who signed with Atlanta during spring training after Mike Hampton went down with an injury. In six appearances, including five starts, Redman went Oh-and-4 with an 11.63 E-R-A and gave up 38 hits in 21 and two-thirds innings.

He went on the disabled list this month for surgery to remove an ingrown toenail. He returned to make his last appearance Saturday, giving up a grand slam to Boston's Mike Lowell in his first relief outing of the season.

After Redman went on the disabled list, the Braves called up Anthony Lerew to fill the fifth spot in the rotation. The rookie had an impressive debut, then struggled in his last two outings before going on the 15-day D-L himself over the weekend with inflamed nerves in his right forearm.
