Player Notes
Gerald Laird (oblique) returned to the Braves lineup without missing a beat on Friday, going 2-for-4 with a run scored in a victory over the Diamondbacks.

Advice: The veteran backstop sat out the previous three contests due to a strained right oblique. He will continue to share the bulk of the playing time with Christian Bethancourt while Evan Gattis is stowed away on the disabled list.

Gerald Laird (oblique) expects to return to the lineup Friday.

Advice: Christian Bethancourt has caught three straight games while Laird nurses a right oblique strain that he originally suffered a couple weeks ago. However, Laird thinks he'll be ready to roll Friday. "If (Bethancourt) wasn't here I could play, (Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez) knows that," said Laird. "(Gonzalez) just said, let's nip it in the bud and then Friday will probably be my day to play."
