The 27-year-old Boyer was designated for assignment on Saturday when the Braves recalled left-hander Jo-Jo Reyes from Triple-A Gwinnett to start against the Pirates.

Boyer was 0-1 with a 40.50 ERA in three games, allowing six runs in 1 1-3 innings. He appeared in a career-high 76 games last year with Atlanta while also setting highs in innings (72) and strikeouts (67).

The Cardinals acquired the 26-year-old Barton in the Rule 5 Draft in 2007. He batted .268 with two home runs and 13 RBIs last year as a rookie.
