Injuries continue to haunt the Braves at shortstop.

Atlanta Braves shortstop Paul Janish could be out for the season after suffering a dislocated shoulder on Tuesday night, as reported by the Braves' official twitter.

He will have X-rays done on the shoulder, but Janish does not seem overly optimistic: "I've probably done it eight or nine times before but never got stuck," according to Kevin McAlpin of the Braves Radio Network.

Janish, who joined the Braves in July, has been the starting shortstop for most of his time in Atlanta, as injuries have kept Alex Gonzalez and rookie Andrelton Simmons out of the lineup.

Janish has not dazzled at the plate -- he's hitting just .186 -- but he has contributed with his solid defense.

The injury leaves the Braves with Tyler Pastornicky and the aforementioned Simmons, for whom injuries continue to be a nagging problem.
