Braves Vs. Nationals: Matt Diaz Sent To The 15-Day DL With Right Thumb Contusion

The Atlanta Braves will be without the services of outfielder Matt Diaz as a trip to the disabled list is evidently in his future. Courtesy of the Atlanta Braves twitter feed:

Jonny Venters could be in line for some immediate duty as the Braves bullpen have had to pitch into extra innings in two of their last three games. Venters is 3-3 overall on the season with a 4.45 ERA in 40 games this season and will be available for Saturday's contest versus the Washington Nationals.
