Braves Activate Two Players

The Braves have activated players Tyler Matzek and Eddie Rosario off of the injured list.

Matzek has been out since mid-May with left shoulder inflammation and will rejoin the Braves bullpen for their series opener against the Cardinals tonight. The thirty-one year old has only appeared in 10 innings this season, posting a 5.06 ERA and 1.41 WHIP. Matzek was a critical piece in the Braves World Series win last season and will provide great depth for the team's bullpen. 

Eddie Rosario is starting in left field tonight and batting seventh tonight.

Rosario underwent a procedure in late April to correct blurred vision and swelling in his eye and has only appeared in 15 games this season, as a result. Now that Michael Harris has taken over in the outfield, and excelled, it will be interesting to see how Rosario is utilized moving forward.
