PHILADELPHIA -- Shortly after arriving in Durham, N.C., with their Triple-A Gwinnett teammates late Thursday evening, right-handed relievers Michael Kohn and John Cornely learned they were being promoted to the Major League level to aid the Braves' battered and fatigued bullpen.
Kohn and Cornely were placed on Atlanta's active roster before Friday night's series opener against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. To create roster spots for their two latest bullpen additions, the Braves optioned right-handed relievers Brandon Cunniff and Sugar Ray Marimon to Gwinnett.
