Braves place 1B Freddie Freeman, RHP Jason Frasor on DL
Freeman, who returned on July 25 from five weeks on the DL due to a right wrist injury, strained his right oblique Monday in Atlanta's comeback victory over the San Francisco Giants. Atlanta recalled first baseman/outfielder Joey Terdoslavich from Triple A Gwinnet to fill Freeman's roster spot. Terdoslavich, along with Chris Johnson, are expected to fill in for Freeman in the interim.
Before being sidelined earlier this season, Freeman played in a league-leading 243 consecutive games. In 76 games this year, the two-time All-Star is batting .284 with 14 home runs and 45 RBIs.
Frasor, who was traded to the Braves from Kansas City in mid-July, landed on the DL with a right shoulder strain. Since the trade, the reliever has allowed three hits and three walks and has recorded four strikeouts in 4.2 scoreless innings. Frasor is 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA in 28.0 total innings this season.
Right-handed pitcher Ryan Kelly was recalled from Gwinnet to take Frasor's place on the roster. Kelly has a 6.75 ERA in 2.2 innings for the Braves this season.
