The Braves will call up RHP Jake Brigham on Saturday, per MLB.com.

Brigham was 6-3, 3.05 in 12 starts at Double-A Mississippi and won his only start at Triple-A Gwinnett. He has never appeared in a MLB game. 

The Braves created a roster spot by placing pitcher Williams Perez on the 15-day disabled list with a left foot contusion.

News
Braves right fielder Nick Markakis has neither scored nor driven in a lot of runs this season, but he has proven remarkably consistent.

Markakis has only suffered through one three-game hitless streak this year - and that was the first three days of May. He has three hits in his last eight at-bats after two straight hitless games.

One issue for Markakis has been the lack of extra-base hits. He has two doubles, no triples and no homers since June 3 and is homerless on the year after blasting at least 10 in each of his previous nine seasons.

Braves center fielder Cameron Maybin was held out of the starting lineup Friday against the Pirates for the first time since June 2. Eury Perez started in his absence.

Maybin does not have a good track record against Pirates starting pitcher Francisco Liriano, who is on the mound Friday. He has struck out in all five of his career at-bats against the lefty.

Maybin has enjoyed a productive month offensively, batting .337 with one home run, two doubles, 14 RBI, 10 runs and six stolen bases in 21 games in June.

News
Braves starting pitcher Alex Wood has spent several weeks making adjustments to his pitching mechanics in order to find the form that made him a successful starter in 2014. Wood admits he might have finally found that form after throwing 7 1/3 scoreless innings during Sunday's 2-1 win against the Pirates.

"This is my best [start] of the year for sure, just in terms of my fastball command, being able to move it in and out," Wood said, per MLB.com. "Today is how I felt during that long stretch that I put together last year. Hopefully, it will carry over the rest of the year."

Wood tied a season-high with eight strikeouts, while allowing five hits and no walks.

"He was pretty much in control the whole game," Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski said. "He had all three of his pitches working and he was moving his fastball around. He was ahead in the count. That's what he can do. When he's right, he can dominate lineups. Today you saw a glimpse of what he can do.

"He threw a lot of fastballs in to a lot of their right-handed hitters that backed them up and made them respect both sides of the plate. He had a lot of strikeouts, especially looking at fastballs that were in on the plate because they were looking out over [the plate]."

Foot - 15-day DL. Out until at least late July (Updated - 6/27/15)
News
Braves starter Williams Perez was forced to leave Friday's game after 4 2/3 innings when he took a linedrive off of his ankle in the fifth inning. After being drilled by a comebacker, Perez was checked out by the medical staff, but he was able to remain in the game.

That is until he walked the next batter, and then committed a balk. Perez was lifted for a reliever, who promptly served up a two-run single, with both runs being charged to Perez. 

Perez did escape with a no-decision as the Braves were able to tie it up, before losing in extra innings. 

"When I first got hit, I thought it was a lot more serious," Perez said, per MLB.com. "I thought I might have broken my foot, but thank God it wasn't that serious and hopefully, I'll be out there soon."

The right-hander has been diagnosed with a left foot contusion. He was taken for X-Rays, which came back negative for any fractures. Still, his status for his next start is in question at this point.

"We feel like we might have dodged a bullet, but again we'll see how it materializes tomorrow, maybe with more swelling or something will come up," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We're going to wait. But yeah, I thought it was going to be more serious."

Braves third baseman Juan Uribe came through in the clutch on Friday, but it wasn't enough to avoid the 3-2 extra-innings loss to the Pirates. Uribe went 2 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run on Friday.

Uribe's home run, his fourth of the season, tied the game at 2-2 in the sixth inning. But the Pirates were able to push across the winning run in the 10th inning. 

Uribe had been hitless in his previous five games. He has hit three of his four home runs since coming over from the Dodgers in a trade at the end of May.

News
Braves outfielder Eury Perez checked out OK after colliding with Cameron Maybin in the outfield in the bottom of the ninth Sunday against the Pirates, per MLB.com. 

Maybin was fine after the collision, but Perez was down on the warning track for a few minutes holding his torso before leaving the game under his own power. However, Perez's stomach and ribs checked out without injury upon further evaluation.

"I was a little nervous. I thought we were going to lose two players out there," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We dodged a bullet there."

Perez, who entered the game in left field in the eighth inning as a defensive substitution, said through a translator he didn't hear anyone else calling for the fly ball. But he knew after the play he wasn't seriously hurt.

"We're playing for each other. We've got each others' backs and going hard," said Jason Grilli, who was pitching at the time of the collision. "I'm glad everyone is OK. That's the most important thing."

News
It appeared that former Braves ace Julio Teheran had turned around his season when he pitched seven shutout innings against the Mets on Sunday.

Appearances can be deceiving.

Teheran reverted to the form Saturday in Pittsburgh that has made this season a personal disappointment. He yielded six runs on nine hits in six innings to raise his ERA to 4.94. Several strong outings still have his record at 5-4.

The right-hander nearly didn't make it out of the first inning. He gave up five hits, including a Starling Marte single, Pedro Alvarez double and Francisco Cervelli single successively that plated four runs. By the time the dust had cleared, he had faced 10 batters in the inning and surrendered five runs.

Teheran settled down thereafter, allowing just one more run, but the brutal start put the Braves behind to stay. And it had Fredi Gonzalez quite unhappy.

"There's something there that we've got to fix," he told MLB.com. "We've got to take care of it collectively. Julio has a big voice in this. When we get home and he throws his side [session] on Tuesday, we've got to sit down and figure out what needs to be addressed."
