Recapping the news and scores for May 7:
The Braves will likely call up shortstop Diory Hernandez to take the place of Julio Teheran once Teheran is demoted (link). The rule says a player must remain at Triple-A for 10 days once demoted, so Brandon Hicks can't come back up yet, meaning Hernandez will probably get the call instead.
