Ayala took two trips to the emergency room with high blood pressure last week while the Braves were in Denver. He gave up a run on two hits in just 1/3 of an inning in the series finale but didn't travel with the team to Detroit over the weekend.
"He's been put on blood-pressure medication to hopefully ease the anxiety," general manager Frank Wren said. "But right now, it's just a function of him getting used to the medication and getting back to feeling well. It's a bit of a process to get those meds regulated."
Atlanta acquired Ayala via a trade with the Baltimore Orioles on April 9. He put up a 3.86 ERA in five apperances.
To fill Ayala's spot, the Braves called up David Carpenter from Triple-A Gwinnett. The 27-year-old righty had a 3.52 ERA in six appearances.
