News
Grilli worked a scoreless 10th inning Sunday, walking one and striking out one, to pick up his second save of the season.

The Braves actually had a lead in the ninth for once but Arodys Vizcaino couldn't nail things down, allowing Grilli to do the honors instead when Atlanta re-took the lead in the top of the 10th. The veteran right-hander threw just nine of his 19 pitches for strikes and has a 6.00 ERA, 2.11 WHIP and 10:9 K:BB in nine innings on the season, though, so he isn't about to supplant Vizcaino in the closer role any time soon.

News
Beckham (hamstring) will begin his rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Gwinnett.

Beckham appears to be getting back to full speed on schedule. As long as he doesn't experience any setbacks in the coming days, he could be very close to returning from the disabled list.

Position Breakdown
SS - 142
News
Aybar went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Monday's loss to the Mets.

The struggling shortstop may finally be starting to come alive for the Braves. Aybar is hitting .304 in his last six games, but all of that work only brings his average up to .178 for the season. Since Aybar has hit worse than .270 just once since 2008, he should bring his average up significantly sooner rather than later.

News
Stubbs was designated for assignment Monday.

Stubbs shared some time in center field with Mallex Smith while Ender Inciarte (hamstring) has been injured, but his .237 batting average hasn't exactly impressed the Braves brass very much, leading them to send him off the 40-man roster. He has a decent amount of MLB experience under his belt, so he could get swiped up by another team in need of outfield depth, although he'll likely end up in Triple-A with whatever team has him.

News
Inciarte (hamstring) will begin his rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Gwinnett.

This holds true to prior reports stating that he would begin his rehab assignment this week, and it appears that this should keep him on track to rejoin the Braves roster sometime over the weekend barring any setbacks. He should re-enter the starting lineup once he's activated.

News
Gant was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

Gant made four relief appearances with the Braves, but was rendered ineffective after allowing six runs on nine hits and three walks in 7.2 innings pitched. He did post 11 strikeouts in that same span, so he could be back with the major league club once he can improve his ability to get upper-level batters out when they manage to make contact.

News
Castro is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Mets.

Castro was getting pretty consistent starting time recently, but this is the second game in three days that he will not start after garnering only two hits since April 25. Kelly Johnson will man second base in his stead.

News
Freeman went 10-for-22 (.455) with two home runs, two RBI and three runs last week, as he officially broke out of his early season slump.

He was hitting just .080 on April 14 and still only .156 by April 20th, but Freeman has reached base safely in 12 of his last 15 games. Before Sunday, he also had three straight games with multiple hits. He's still not going to get a lot of RBI opportunities in the Braves lineup, but it's good to see Freeman break out of the early slump.

News
Withrow was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

The right-hander has generally been serviceable in his 10 appearances out of the bullpen to date, allowing three runs on five hits and five walks over seven innings. However, with the Braves deciding to prioritize adding bench depth over bullpen help, Emilio Bonifacio will be added to the 25-man roster at Withrow's expense.

News
Smith will continue to bat ninth in the Atlanta lineup whenever he is in the lineup, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

He hit ninth in Boston with the designated hitter Thursday, and then ninth again Sunday because Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez elected to bat pitcher Julio Teheran eighth versus the Cubs. In those two games, Smith went 6-for-8 (.750) with three doubles, two RBI and a stolen base. Before that, he was hitting .136 in 44 at-bats.

News
Flowers went 0-for-10 with six strikeouts and two walks over four games last week.

The Braves backup catcher had a strong start to the season, going 9-for-26 (.346) in his first eight games. He went 4-for-4 with three RBI against the Dodgers on April 19. With A.J. Pierzynski struggling, there might have been a chance for Flowers to receive more playing time, but that's probably not as likely now with Flowers' recent slump.

News
Teheran (0-3) put together his best start of the season Sunday, tossing seven shutout innings while allowing just two hits and one walk while striking out nine, but came away with a no-decision in an extra-inning win over the Cubs.

After a rough start to his campaign Teheran has turned things around, posting a 1.40 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 20:4 K:BB over his last 19.1 innings and three starts. Unfortunately the woeful Braves' offense hasn't been able to give him enough run support to earn a victory despite that strong stretch on the mound. His next start will come Friday, at home against the Diamondbacks.

Francoeur is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets.

The Braves will move Adonis Garcia to left field and insert Reid Brignac at third base. Francoeur is just 1-for-12 over the past three games, so a day off could help him get back on track.

News
Peterson was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

Peterson was a pleasant surprise for the Braves during the second half of last season, but a rough .182 batting average to start the season was enough to send the 25-year-old back to the minors. There's a good chance that he could rejoin the major league club if he hits well in the minor leagues, though, as the Braves don't exactly have many set options in their lineup.
