Early in last night’s game the Atlanta Braves watched outfielder B.J. Upton exit due to injury. Later in the contest, the team’s other Upton was forced to leave with a strained calf, according to Eric Single of MLB.com. Justin Upton suffered his calf injury while running out a ground ball in the seventh inning. During the play, he pulled up roughly halfway to first base. He told reporters after the game that his calf locked up on him. "My calf kind of locked up on me, and that was kind of it halfway down the line," Upton said. "It's calmed down, it's a little sore, and we're kind of going to play it by ear tomorrow." With both of the Upton’s going down, the Braves could be without their entire starting outfield leading up to the All-Star break. Jason Heyward exited Thursday’s contest with a hamstring strain, and while he’s hoping to avoid the disabled list Atlanta could elect to rest him until after the upcoming hiatus. To account for the injuries and absence of Heyward last night, the Braves finished the game with an outfield that included Joey Terdoslavich in left, Tyler Pastornicky in center and Reed Johnson in right. Atlanta recalled outfielder Jose Constanza from Triple-A after the game to bolster their bench. The Braves has yet to announce a roster move to account for Constanza’s arrival, and the club could opt to send one of their ailing outfielders to the DL. However, Atlanta could be hesitant to do so considering they have the upcoming break to get the trio healthy without missing an extended stretch.
