Jurrjens to begin rehab stint



Braves starter Jair Jurrjens threw three simulated innings for the Braves on Friday and will start for Triple-A Gwinnet on Monday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien reports .

Jurrjens has been out since April 30 with a left hamstring injury.

"Everything felt fine," Jurrjens told O'Brien. "I was throwing my off-speed pitches, throwing all my pitches. I was doing everything game-speed. Every time you go out and have a big test like this and everything’s fine, it’s always a good thing."

McLouth to DL


Apparently running into the brick wall that is Jason Heyward is hazardous to your health. The Braves have put center fielder Nate McLouth on the 15-day disabled list with concussion symptoms as a result of Tuesday's night collision with the star rookie.

“I’m still dizzy, like if I get up and move around,” McLouth told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution , who had not been told for sure that he had a concussion. “But they’ve treated it that way.”

The Braves don't have an obvious call-up to fill McLouth's spot on the roster and have yet to announce the corresponding roster move.

McLouth day-to-day


David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports via Twitter that the Braves' Nate McLouth is day-to-day after being hurt in a collision with Jason Heyward on Wednesday night.

However, McLouth still has a headache and will be seen by a doctor today to determine whether he has a concussion. If he does, the DL could still be a possibility.

McLouth out of game after collision


Simple physics -- Jason Heyward is 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds, Nate McLouth is 5-11, 180-pounds, when they collide someone's going to be hurt and it's no surprise which player left the game.

The ball bounced away from McLouth and to the wall and Gerardo Parra raced around the bases for an inside-the-park home run, giving the Diamondbacks a 2-1 lead in the eighth inning.

It was the first home run Peter Moylan had given up since opening day of 2008, a streak of 123 games. Moylan didn't allow a home run in 88 appearances last season.

UPDATE: McLouth has a headache and will be evaluated throughout the night, MLB.com's Mark Bowman Tweets. McLouth was seen by doctors before the Diamondbacks finished up the 2-1 victory.

Medlen has gone 2-0 with a 3.86 ERA in the place of Jair Jurrjens.

The Kids Are Alright

How about the rookies of the National League East?

• There was some guy in Washington who did something.

• The Mets' Ike Davis hit a walk-off against the Padres.

• Florida's Mike Stanton was 3 for 5 with two runs in his debut.

Jason Heyward started the day by moving into second in All-Star fan voting for National League outfielders, then went 2 for 5 and picked up his 40th RBI of the season in a Braves victory.
