Atlanta Braves rookie Evan Gattis was hitless in his first rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett Friday night.
Gattis went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts as the Gwinnett Braves lost 3-0 in a road game at Durham. He also struck out twice.
Gattis is expected to play with Gwinnett Saturday and Sunday. He will then either play with another Braves minor league team next week or continue his rehab with private workouts.
The Braves suffered two more injuries Friday night against the Reds, with B.J. Upton going out with a right abductor sprain and Justin Upton going out with a calf strain.
It was also announced that an MRI showed that outfielder Jordan Schafer has a stress fracture in his right leg. It was orginally thought to be nothing more than a deep bruise, but the advanced tests showed the additional severity of the injury.
Right fielder Jason Heyward injured his right hamstring Thursday night and is questionable in the Saturday and Sunday games against the Reds.
