This series against the Reds to close out the first half is already a disaster, even though the Braves have split the first two games of the four game set. Last night, B.J Upton and Justin Upton both left the game early due to injuries just a day after Jason Heyward suffered the same fate. B.J. has a strained adductor while Justin has a calf strain.
Due to Jordan Schafer already being on the disabled list, the Braves have called up Jose Constanza as the team suddenly has a lack of depth in the outfield. Constanza is not hitting well this year and is not all that good, but as a bench outfielder there could be worse options. I will update this post when we get the severity of the injuries reported. We already know that Heyward suffered a hamstring strain and will try to avoid the disabled list by playing right after the All-Star Game.
