Tonight the Pirates will be taking on the Atlanta Braves, who will be without two of their top outfielders.
The Braves have placed center fielder Nate McLouth on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.
Sunday, the Braves put Jason Heyward on the disabled list with lingering right shoulder problems.
McLouth was only hitting .238 with 3 home runs.
McLouth injured himself over the weekend against the Angels checking his swing on a pitch in the dirt. He immediately doubled over in pain.
To take McLouth’s spot on the roster, the Braves have recalled center fielder Jordan Schafer.
Schafer was hitting .256 (42-for-164) with one home run and 21 RBIs in 42 games for Gwinnett.
