Jordan Walden throws scoreless inning at Gwinnett, expected back Tuesday


The Atlanta Braves are expecting right handed reliever Jordan Walden to return on Tuesday in Colorado.

Walden competed his second rehab appearance Sunday at Triple-A Gwinnett throwing a scoreless inning. Walden had two strikeouts and a walk in what proved to be a 4-2 win for Gwinnett.

“I felt good out there, hamstring felt good,” Walden said via the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “I didn’t have any issues with it again, so that was a positive. I walked the first guy and I wasn’t very happy with that. I didn’t feel like the command was there, but I battled through and got a couple strikeouts.”

Walden has missed a month of action dealing with a strained hamstring. When he returns to the majors he is expected to resume his duties in the seventh and eighth innings.
