The 31-year-old Harrell was signed by the Braves as a minor league free agent on May 21 after he began the season in Detroit’s organization. Harrell was 2-1 with a 2.81 ERA in nine games with Gwinnett.

He is 18-33 with a 4.84 ERA in 88 games in the majors. His last appearance in the majors came on April 15, 2014, with Houston.
