Scott Downs leaves Angels, joins Braves

By  | 

The Atlanta Braves have added left-handed Los Angeles Angel Scott Downs to their bullpen in exchange for minor league righty Cory Rasmus.

The Braves add Downs to make up for lost left-handed relievers Jonny Venters and Eric O'Flaherty. He is now the second lefty in the bullpen next to Luis Avilan.

Downs racked up 29 consecutive scoreless appearances between May 5th and July 23rd. He broke the streak on Saturday against the Oakland A's.
