The Braves announced today that they have outrighted righty Jason Hursh. He has already cleared waivers and been assigned to Double-A, leaving two openings on the club’s 40-man roster.
Hursh, 26, came to the club with the 31st pick of the 2013 draft. He opened his first full season in the minors at the Double-A level, but was bumped into a relief role in the ensuing campaign and has worked in that capacity since.
Though he briefly reached the majors in 2016 and 2017, Hursh has mostly plied his trade in the upper minors over the past several seasons. This year, he carries a 3.97 ERA in 56 2/3 innings, with 8.3 K/9 and 5.2 BB/9.
