Braves | Jordan Walden activated

The Atlanta Braves activated RP Jordan Walden (shoulder) from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, May 29, and optioned RP Cory Rasmus to Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move. Walden is 1-1 with a 4.85 ERA in 14 outings this year.

Fantasy Tip: The return of Walden is a welcome sight for the Bravos, who recently learned that both Jonny Venters and Eric O'Flaherty have been lost for the season. Walden will be expected to play a big role in setup duties before Craig Kimbrel. Should Kimbrel be injured, Walden would be a top candidate to replace him in the ninth inning.
