Braves | Tyler Pastornicky out for season

Atlanta Braves SS Tyler Pastornicky (knee) will miss the rest of the year and will have surgery to fix a torn anterior cruciate ligament Monday, Aug. 19. Pastornicky tore the ligament in his knee after he crashed into OF Jason Heyward Wednesday, Aug. 14, attempting to catch a fly ball. INF Phil Gosselin is being called up from Triple-A Gwinnett. Gosselin hit .277 with two home runs and 11 RBIs in the minors.

Fantasy Tip: Pastornicky was filling in for Dan Uggla (Lasik eye surgery) at second base. Now, that task will fall to some combination of Paul Janish and Gosselin. Nothing really worth pursuing unless you're desperate for a middle infielder in NL-only leagues.
