Brave return: Gattis to begin rehab assignment Thursday
Today's post will be a short one, as not much happened on Tuesday outside of the All-Star Game - otherwise known as the night Adam Wainwright learned that you should never tell anyone when you intentionally serve up a very hittable pitch.
News & notes
Braves C Evan Gattis (back) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment on Thursday. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Gattis is expected to play in three or four rehab games, so we could be looking at a Monday reactivation.
Reds' closer Aroldis Chapman tweaked a hamstring during his All-Star appearance, but he expects to be ready when the season resumes on Friday.
It sounds like Danny Salazar will rejoin the Indians' rotation on either Saturday or Tuesday.
Here's a link to Friday's probable starters, in case you'd like to set your lineup nice and early.
See! I told you today's post would be short. See you back here tomorrow morning. Send me a tweet (@jhalpin37) if you have any questions before then.
