Stults had been designated for assignment immediately after the trade became official. By accepting an outright assignment, Stults returns to the club that drafted him in 2002 and employed him at the major league level from 2006-09.
In nine games (eight starts) for the Braves this season, Stults went 1-5 with a 5.85 earned-run average.
The Dodgers were ultimately able to keep all four players they acquired for Uribe and pitcher Chris Withrow in the organization. Pitcher Ian Thomas is in Triple-A, pitcher Juan Jaime is at extended spring training and infielder Alberto Callaspo is with the Dodgers.
Chris Cotillo of SBNation.com first reported that Stults accepted the outright assignment.
