Braves | B.J. Upton rehabbing

Atlanta Braves OF B.J. Upton (groin) doubled in both of his at-bats with Triple-A Gwinnett Thursday, Aug. 1. He went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in five innings Wednesday, July 31. "For the first time in two weeks facing live pitching, the at-bats were good," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "He'll go again (Thursday and Friday) and we'll check with him and see if he needs a couple more days, more at-bats, before we bring him up here."

Fantasy Tip: When Upton returns, possibly this weekend, Evan Gattis will return to less-frequent at-bats, making it tough to hang onto him in deep mixed leagues if he's not playing every day.
