Gotay, who batted .295 with four homers and 24 RBIs in 98 games for the Mets last season, will be on Atlanta's 25-man roster as a utility infielder. The Braves needed a backup infielder while Omar Infante recovers from a broken bone in his hand.
Thorman began last season as the Braves' starting first baseman but hit .216 with 11 homers and 36 RBIs. He lost his starting job when Atlanta acquired Mark Teixeira.
