Player Notes
Christian Bethancourt has been placed on the 7-day disabled list with Triple-A Gwinnett due to a left hand contusion.

Advice: It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined, but Bethancourt figures to be a September call-up if he's healthy. Mostly known for his excellent ability behind the plate, the 22-year-old has batted .240/.283/.260 over his first 13 games in the majors.

Braves catching prospect Christian Bethancourt went 3-for-5 with a double and a home run for Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

Advice: Bethancourt remains the Braves catcher of the future, and will likely be called back up when rosters expand in September. Braves backup catcher Gerald Laird will be a free agent after the season, and Bethancourt will likely slide into a similar role for 2015. However, it is likely that Bethancourt will play more than Laird, pushing Evan Gattis to first base or a corner outfield position on occasion. Bethancourt is hitting .277/.279/.523 since being sent back down to Triple-A, and is a replacement-level offensive catcher who is an elite defender.
