Thomson goes on disabled list; reliever called up |

Why Matt Childers? Well, in 19 1/3 innings over 15 games, he has a 3.26 ERA and a .203 batting average allowed. He also has 24 strikeouts and six walks and no homers allowed. All pretty impressive. He pitched nine dreadful innings for the Brewers a few years ago and his career minor league numbers aren’t that good. It looks like the Braves will make another move in a few days whenever they need another starter, not put Bernero in the rotation.
