Postgame quotes following Braves loss to Nats on Saturday | Atlanta Braves
Fredi Gonzalez, on Hanson’s performance: "The bottom of the order got him. The pitcher got two hits. Ramos, that was the only mistake he made the whole night. It cost him a two-run homer. He gave us an opportunity to win the ball game and we just didn’t score any runs against them."

Relievers get rest, but ready to work | News
With the All-Star break sandwiched between Sunday's blowout loss to the Phillies and Friday's night's convincing win over the Nationals, the Braves entered Saturday having not used Venters, Kimbrel or their other valuable setup man, Eric O'Flaherty, for an entire week. "It feels weird," Venters said. "But my arm feels great."

Chipper hoping to start rehab games soon | News
Exactly one week after an arthroscopic surgical procedure repaired torn meniscus in his right knee, Jones ran sprints and hit some balls off the tee with more intensity than he had Friday. If he wakes up feeling good Sunday, he plans to take batting practice.

Medlen coping with latest elbow setback | Atlanta Braves
Kris Medlen has had almost a week to get used to the idea that he can’t resume his throwing program until September and might not return at all this season from elbow reconstruction surgery. But he’s at least holding out some hope. "That’s all I can do," Medlen said. He conceded the odds aren’t in his favor since by the time he’s cleared to begin throwing again, the minor league seasons will be over and he’ll have a hard time coordinating an injury rehab, not to mention the major league season will be coming to a close as well.

Braves' 10,000th win special for Fredi | News
After the Braves captured their 10,000th win in franchise history with an 11-1 victory over the Nationals, Gonzalez signed his lineup cards, which were sent over to the museum inside Turner Field. "They're going to put a sticker on it, authenticate it, and we're going to give it to the museum," Gonzalez said.
