Breaking: Atlanta Braves Confirm Major Blow As Another Experienced Star Confirm Ruled Out With Major Injury

Here are the latest updates on the Atlanta Braves from Tuesday:

The Braves announced that outfielder Brian Anderson has been placed on the 10-day injured list due to a bacterial infection, retroactive to June 22. Utility player Luke Williams has been recalled to fill his roster spot.

Anderson, who joined the Braves earlier this month, has appeared in three games, recording five at-bats with two strikeouts. He has played one inning at third base and 13 innings in right field for Atlanta. Williams, meanwhile, has played in eight games this season and even pitched an inning.

He has primarily played third base, covering for Austin Riley during his injury absence.

Orlando Arcia, who left Monday night’s game due to dizziness, underwent several tests at the hospital, all of which came back clear, according to Justin Toscano of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Tuesday night’s game in St. Louis was rained out and will be made up on Wednesday as part of a doubleheader. Reynaldo López will start game one, with Bryce Elder pitching game two.

In other news, Nacho Alvarez continues his impressive performance in Triple-A, hitting another home run. More details can be found in the Braves Prospects Weekly Report.

Additionally, Ken Sugiura of the AJC explores the influence Willie Mays had on Dale Murphy and Ralph Garr.
