The much-anticipated debut of Juan Uribe comes tonight after the Braves paid Callaspo $10,000 to go away. Nice knowing you, Alberto and, with Uribe in the fold, might we soon be saying au revoir to Chris Johnson? CJ was activated today and Donnie Veal becomes the 334th hurler to pitch for the 2015 Braves.
Uribe is probably not going to offset what has the makings of a disastrous road trip. Teheran’s outing last night is especially worrisome.
Here’s the line-up:
Peterson 4, Maybin 8, Freeman 3, Markakis 9, Uribe 5, Pierzynski 2, Gomes 7, Simmons 8, Wood 1
