Braves Lineup - Chris Johnson Out

According to Mark Bowman Chris Johnson was scratched fro today’s series finale with Turf Toe. Paul Janish will play third.Turf toe is essentially a sprain of the ligaments around the big toe joint. It can be extremely painful. The only treatment is rest, ice, compression and elevation.  Typically ibuprofen is taken for pain and sometimes the toe is taped to the index toe to stabilize it.

This is just the latest blow to the Braves lineup and leaves only Freddie Freeman as the only regular hitting over 300. Today’s lineup:

Jordan Schafer, CF .264/.350/.384
Elliot Johnson, 2B.182/.182/.182
