Braves right-hander Peter Moylan underwent surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back in mid-April and hasn’t pitched in a major league game since. That should change tomorrow. Or at some point early next week.
According to David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Moylan will be activated from the 60-day disabled list on Sunday morning and will be available out of the Atlanta bullpen for the Braves’ series finale against the visiting Dodgers.
Moylan allowed one unearned run and struck out 10 batters over six minor league rehab appearances. A 32-year-old from Australia, he has posted a sparkling 2.61 ERA in 251 2/3 career major league innings. The Braves are likely to use him frequently down the stretch.
