Rodriguez (shoulder) was activated from the 60-day disabled list and is in the starting lineup for Monday's contest with the Cubs.

After initial reports suggested that the utility man would miss the entire 2017 campaign, Rodriguez will return to provide the Braves with his trademark positional versatility. He'll bat seventh and play third base Monday, although it seems like he'll act in more of a reserve role now that he's back in the fray. Rodriguez looked quite rusty during his two-week rehab assignment across four different levels, going 3-for-39 (.077) with 12 strikeouts.
