Nate McLouth returns to the lineup for the first time since banging his shoulder falling on a bunt attempt. He received a cortisone shot a couple days ago and is back in action. After Uggla, the rest of the lineup looks like potential bench players with the exception of Schafer. It's good to see Matt Young getting another start. They seem to be more frequent now.

Brian McCann is away for the day for a family wedding.

If I'm not mistaken, we have yet to hear why Eric O'Flaherty didn't make the trip with the team yesterday, though he was scheduled to.
