Rasmus was knocked around in his only two Major League appearances on May 22 and 27. He gave up five runs on five hits and three walks in just 3 2/3 innings.
“I feel way more confident now,” Rasmus said. “Before I was more nervous, and I guess you could say a little bit scared, to see what was going to happen. Now I feel a lot more relaxed and I’m like, you know what, I’m going to go out here and make some things happen.”
A rule instituted last season allows teams to call up a 26th man for split doubleheaders, when separate admission is charged for each game. The team must then reduce their roster to 25 players afterward.
Rasmus has posted a 1.44 ERA and seven saves this year with Triple-A Gwinnett.
