Atlanta Braves 2B Dan Uggla is not on the team's 25-man roster for the National League Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The roster includes slumping OF B.J. Upton and SP Freddy Garcia. SP Paul Maholm also did not make the roster after going 10-11 with a 4.41 ERA on the season. Uggla hit only .122 in 49 at-bats in the season's final month. 2B Elliot Johnson is expected to start at second base in the series.

Atlanta Braves SP Paul Maholm (elbow) felt soreness in his elbow, and he'll undergo an MRI exam and miss his start Friday, Sept. 13. P David Hale will start in his place. SP Freddy Garcia will start in the place of SP Alex Wood Thursday, Sept. 12, in order to give Wood a breather.

The Atlanta Braves placed SP Brandon Beachy (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation Friday, Aug. 23, and recalled OF Todd Cunningham from Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Beachy apparently had a setback in his return from Tommy John surgery, and he'll visit with Dr. James Andrews Monday. His season could very well be over, depending on what they find. Paul Maholm will slide into the rotation spot that Beachy leaves behind.

The Atlanta Braves placed OF Jason Heyward (jaw) on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured jaw Thursday, Aug. 22, and activated SP Paul Maholm (wrist) from the 15-day DL in a corresponding move. Also, INF Phil Gosselin was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett to make room on the roster for 2B Elliot Johnson.

Atlanta Braves SP Paul Maholm will make the start against the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, Aug. 22, to give SP Mike Minor extra rest.
Fantasy Tip: This will probably only be a spot start for Maholm in order to ease up on Minor down the stretch. The start against the Cardinals isn't intriguing for a stream option, either.

Atlanta Braves SP Paul Maholm (wrist) allowed one run on four hits over 5 2/3 innings in a rehab start for Class A Rome Saturday, Aug. 17, and said he is ready to return.

Atlanta Braves SP Paul Maholm (wrist) will throw six innings or 90 pitches for Single-A Rome Saturday, Aug. 17.
Fantasy Tip: Maholm could make spot starts in the rotation to rest the current starters down the stretch, but it's unclear if he'll have a permanent spot in the rotation when he's ready. As a result, he shouldn't be a candidate to own in mixed leagues.

Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran is a candidate to be rested down the stretch, as he's never thrown more than 168 innings in a season. He entered his start Monday, Aug. 12, with 137 innings. However, the team isn't going strictly on an innings count for Teheran.
Fantasy Tip: Teheran could be rested by Paul Maholm (wrist), who is nearing a return from the disabled list. Until Teheran is shut down or moved to the bullpen, continue to run him out their in your lineup.

Atlanta Braves SP Paul Maholm (wrist) tossed six simulated innings Monday, Aug. 12, and didn't suffer any setbacks. He'll likely need only one rehab start before returning.
