1057topper Os Trade RHP Ayala To Braves

ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves have bolstered their bullpen depth by acquiring right-handed reliever Luis Ayala from the Baltimore Orioles for a minor-leaguer.

The Braves sent left-handed pitcher Chris Jones to the Orioles in Wednesday’s deal. The 24-year-old was pitching at Double-A Mississippi.

Ayala, 35, is expected to join the Braves when they open a series Friday in Washington. He is 1-0 with a 9.00 ERA in two appearances this season, after going 5-5 with a 2.64 ERA and one save in 66 games for the Orioles in 2012.

The Braves were seeking more depth in their bullpen because of an injury to Jonny Venters. He was shut down for a month after receiving an injection in his sprained left shoulder.
