The Braves season-long injury issues continued again last night when LHP Horacio Ramirez was placed on the 15-day DL with left shoulder tendinitis, retro to 5/26.

RHP Travis Smith had his contract purchased from Richmond (AAA) for Sunday's game...Chipper Jones was forced to leave Friday's game in the bottom of the first inning with a bruised left quadricep muscle after being hit by a pitch in the top of the inning. That was after Julio Franco, who had aggravated his back on the turf in Montreal was forced to be a late scratch from the lineup. Finally, Adam LaRoche separated his left shoulder on a collision at the plate with Mike Lieberthal in the top of the second inning and was placed on the 15-day DL following the game. INF Mike Hessman and OF/C Eli Marrero were recalled from Richmond for yesterday's game and INF Wilson Betemit was optioned to Richmond.
