News
Despite only surrendering one run during Thursday's game against the Giants, Braves pitcher Shelby Miller received a loss for his effort.

Miller (5-2) tossed seven solid innings and allowed one run on five hits during the 7-0 loss. He did not walk a batter and struck out one, which tied his season low. His lone mistake was giving up a home run to Brandon Belt in the sixth inning. It was the first home run hit off Miller since April 30.

"Tough hit to give up at that point of the ballgame. I can't do that right there," Miller said. "I'm taking the blame on that loss."

The quality start was his eighth in a row. Miller has allowed a total of four runs in his last five starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Tuesday at Arizona.

Braves closer Jason Grilli served up a homer on Wednesday but was able to record his 14th save in his team's 3-2 win over the Dodgers.

Grilli needed 24 pitches to escape the outing, getting a quick out before surrendering a solo home run to cut his team's lead to one run. He then gave up a single and recorded another out to bring pinch-hitter Alberto Callaspo, making his Dodger debut after opening the season with the Braves, to the plate. The closer got Callaspo to fly out to end the game.

Grilli owns a 4.41 ERA and 23:7 K:BB ratio in 16 1/3 innings.

News
Braves starting pitcher Alex Wood is confident his early-season struggles are behind him. Following Wednesday's win against the Dodgers, the lefty has won his last two starts and has a 2.88 ERA in four May starts.

"It's been a number of things," Wood said, per MLB.com. "The best comparison I can give is just putting the pieces of a puzzle together. You know it's going to click. It's a matter of when and putting those right parts in place. After tonight and [my recent side sessions], I feel like it's really starting to click.

Wood returned to the mound Wednesday after a 10-day layoff due to a stomach virus. He allowed one run on seven hits and two walks, while striking out six in seven innings.

"I'll be honest. I was nervous after not throwing for 10 days and being as sick as I was," Wood said. "It was kind of one of those things where before the game you tell yourself, 'I wonder what is going to happen tonight?'"

News
Braves third baseman Chris Johnson is reportedly going to be activated on Wednesday, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. The team later confirmed the report.

Johnson, who was on the 15-day DL with a hand injury, will be called up a little earlier than expected after the team completed a trade for Alberto Callaspo, leaving a vacant spot on the roster. The team will also call up pitcher Donnie Veal to join the bullpen. Both will be with the team for Wednesday's game.

Johnson is hitting .279 with five RBI in 43 at-bats this season. Veal is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA in 16 innings of work for Triple-A Gwinnett this season.

News
Braves pitcher Williams Perez allowed one run on seven hits in six innings of work in Atlanta's 6-3 loss to the Dodgers on Monday, but did not factor into the decision.

Perez's lone blemish came in the first inning when he loaded the bases for Andre Ethier. Perez walked Ethier to plate a run. After that, Perez settled down and recorded seven strikeouts and no more walks. 

"He was a little shaky in the first inning; I think he had 30 pitches in the first inning. But he bounced back and he did a nice job," manager Fredi Gonzalez said to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "To come in here as a rookie – I know they didn’t have a sellout, but it's still Dodger Stadium against a pretty good lineup, and the juices are flowing. You kind of expect that first inning. But I'm proud of him the way he settled down and gave us six innings. It was right about where we wanted him, 25 pitches more than last time. Something to build on and go forward."

Perez, who reamins 0-0, moved his ERA to 4.05 in 13 1/3 innings of work. He will look to pick up his first win of the year Saturday against the Giants.

As Chris Withrow continues to recover from Tommy John surgery, the Braves can only think about the long-term potential he can bring to their bullpen after picking him up in a trade with the Dodgers on Wednmesday. 

"We feel like he has a chance to pitch real late in games," Braves assistant general manager John Coppolella said, per MLB.com. "He has the stuff where at some point he could close. It's a really good arm."

The 2007 first-round pick (20th) has been a pretty strong reliever in his MLB career. He is 3-0 with a 2.73 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 46 career appearances. He is striking out 11.4 batters per nine innings. Although, he also has some control issues, as he has walked 5.0 batters per nine innings.

Withrow's fastball ranges from 93-98 mph and he has a plus-plus slider.

Braves starting pitcher Julio Teheran is not happy with how his season has gone through the first two months of the season. Following Tuesday's loss against the Dodgers, the right-hander has a 4.91 ERA and .303 opponents' batting average through 10 starts.

"I've never gone through this kind of thing," Teheran said, per MLB.com. "But I'm just trying to learn from it and trying to do my best to get through it. Hopefully, I can work hard and get back to where I want to be like I did the past two years."

Teheran is having a lot of struggles against left-handed batters. The right-hander has a 5.66 ERA and .371 opponents' batting average vs. lefties.

"It comes down to execution of pitches," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Those pitches he's trying to get to come back against left-handers are getting left right over the middle of the plate. He's not missing barrels. We need to work on that."
