Evan Gattis Unlikely to Return to Atlanta Braves Lineup Before All-Star Break

Screengrab Snafu: BJ Upton drops a deuce into left field

Photo galleries for games are located way out in the boondocks of ESPN.com, which is maybe why not too many people caught this little snafu from the Marlins-Braves game.  (Additionally, it was Justin Upton and not B.J., the trouble of having the Upton brothers on the same roster.)  I'm not sure whether that's ESPN's caption or the AP's caption, but either way it...
