    ATLANTA — Left-hander Ian Thomas has been recalled by the Atlanta from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Atlanta made the move Tuesday, one day after left-hander Andrew McKirahan was suspended for 80 games following a positive test for the banned substance Ipamorelin, which releases growth hormone.

    The 28-year-old did not allow a run in two relief appearances with Gwinnett this season. He was 1-2 with a 4.22 ERA in 16 relief appearances with Atlanta last season.

    Atlanta also agreed to a minor league contract with left-hander Greg Smith, who was assigned to Gwinnett. The 31-year-old last appeared in the major leagues in 2010 with Colorado and was at the Braves' minor league camp in spring training.
