Hamren, who has pitched to a 2.55 ERA in 13 relief appearances with Double-A Mississippi so far this season, was signed by the Braves in April after being released by the Padres during spring training. In 14 major league appearances with San Diego in 2011, Hamren was 1-0 with a 4.38 ERA. He will be assigned to Double-A Montgomery.

The Los Angeles Dodgers granted infielder Alfredo Amezaga his release Sunday after he exercised an out-clause in his contract, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com. Amezaga, who hit .339 with 2 HR and 25 RBI with Triple-A Albuquerque this season, will sign with the Quintana Roo Tigres of the Mexican League, according to a source. In nine major league seasons with the Angels (2002-2004), Rockies (2005, 2011), Pirates (2005), Marlins (2006-2009, 2011), the 35-year old has posted a .247 career average with 12 HR and 110 RBI.
