Add Phil Gosselin's name to the Atlanta Braves' injury report. Gosselin left Sunday's game in the fourth inning with a sprained thumb. Gosselin suffered the injury while making a nice back-handed stop in the third on a grounder by Adeiny Hechavarria. Andrelton Simmons replaced Gosselin in the lineup as a pinch hitter in the fourth.

Gosselin was 1-for-2 on Sunday and had eight hits in his last 20 at-bats. According to the broadcast, the Braves are listing him as day-to-day with mention of a possible trip to the disabled list.
