Tim Drew has a “strained calf muscle”. I could have sworn it was a strained neck from watching all the hits he gave up Tuesday, but anyway he’s on the DL now. (Maybe the Braves have figured out a way to transfer all the injury problems to the less important brother.) Roman “Not Ramon” Colon has been called up. His line from AAA:
W-L SV ERA G GS IP H R ER BB IB SO HR
4- 1 0 3.65 51 0 74.0 72 33 30 22 1 64 4
I doubt he’s very long for Atlanta, and likely he’ll be sent back down on Aug. 31 when the Braves are setting up who will be eligible for the postseason roster.
Colon was notified of his callup (which happened before last night’s game) by none other than Matt Whiteside. I hope Colon didn’t catch anything from him.
