The Atlanta Braves pulled a surprise today, recalling Evan Gattis from his rehab assignment at Triple-A Gwinnett and inserting him into the starting line-up.  Gattis was recalled to replace Freddie Freeman, who was injured in Saturday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds. Gattis will play first base and bat clean-up, as the Braves try to finish out the weekend with a series win against the Reds. In Saturday’s game, Freddie Freeman sprained his left thumb on a tag play at first base and is experiencing soreness which may keep him out of the All-Star game. The Braves lost the first game of the series against the Reds Thursday night, but bounced back with wins Friday and Saturday night. In his Triple-A rehab assignment, Gattis went 0 for 4 Friday night with two strikeouts, but bounced back Saturday evening with a double in four at bats. The Braves will place a somewhat makeshift line-up on the field Sunday afternoon.  Here is the line-up: 1. Constanza LF 2. Simmons SS 3. C. Johnson 3B 4. Gattis 1B 5. Uggla 2B 6. R. Johnson CF 7. Laird C 8. Terdoslavich RF 9. Teheran P The post Freeman Hurt, Gattis Activated For Sunday’s Game appeared first on Atlanta Bullpen.
