Since being recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on June 13, Varvaro has appeared in four games. The right-hander has pitched 6 1/3 innings, striking out eight batters and walking four. But until Tuesday night against the D-backs, he had not put together a scoreless outing. Varvaro got the final three outs of the Braves' 8-1 victory, allowing one hit and striking out one batter.
Manager Fredi Gonzalez said he has quickly grown to trust Varvaro to get outs.
"You see a guy that you've got more confidence in, 'Here it is, go pitch,'" Gonzalez said. "I see a guy that you feel comfortable with using him in situations."
