The Atlanta Braves put pitcher Lance Cormier on the disabled list. Cormier was suffering from the inability to get anyone out. In two games against the Cubs, Cormier saw Alfonso Soriano get 5 hits in 6 ABs, which included FOUR home runs and a triple.
John Smoltz will miss his next start with inflammation in his throwing shoulder.
Buddy Carlyle was recalled from Richmond to replace Cormier on the roster. There is much rejoicing in other parts of the Toaster.
