Today's Wounded; Today's Call-Ups

The damage from last night's 17-inning affair was plenty. Infielder Omar Infante reaggravated his strained groin early in Sunday's contest (after recently straining my groin I can tell you what a pain it is - I used to make fun of players with strained groins, not anymore). Jeff Bennett injured his right shoulder in Saturday's game and Manny Acosta strained his hamstring trying to leg out a bunt in the wee innings of yesterday's marathon.

The Braves recalled Jeff Francoeur from double-A Mississippi, of course I was puzzled by that earlier... still am. The team also recalled infielder Brent Lillibridge and called up for the first time as a Brave, RHP Vladimir Nunez, who last pitched in the majors in 2004 with Colorado. Don't look for Nunez to be anything too spectacular, he's one of those barely marginal major league players.
