Braves Demote Mike Minor, Recall Catcher J.C. Boscan

The Atlanta Braves have sent starting pitcher Mike Minor to triple-A Gwinnett, and promoted catcher J.C. Boscan to Atlanta. No official word yet from the Braves, but this smacks of Brian McCann possibly having some lingering effects from all the hits he took at home plate in the Brewers series this past week.

McCann is in tonight's lineup, so perhaps this is truly just precautionary, or because they were going to demote Minor anyway, they figured they'd add another catcher for a couple of days(?).

Tonight's home opener lineup:

  1. Martin Prado, LF
  2. Nate McLouth, CF
  3. Chipper Jones, 3B
  4. Brian McCann, C
  5. Dan Uggla, 2B
  6. Jason Heyward, RF
  7. Alex Gonzalez, SS
  8. Freddie Freeman, 1B
  9. Tim Hudson, P
