"Anthony has kept me abreast of the whole situation when it started getting closer," Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We've got our fingers crossed... . We wish her the best of luck."
Varvaro could be out up to three days, but Gonzalez said the right-hander expects to be back Thursday. Per Gonzalez, Varvaro's wife had her labor induced on Wednesday.
Schlosser is part of the big-league roster for the third time this season. He broke camp with the Braves, but was demoted on May 2 to make room for the return of starter Mike Minor, then returned to pitch in a double header on June 28 against the Phillies.
In 10 appearances this season, Schlosser has a 4.50 ERA with six strikeouts and four walks over 12 innings.
"He was pitching good and we kind of needed a long guy," Gonzalez said. "We needed a guy who could give us some length so he's the guy."
