Notes:

  • Ryan Braun was ejected in the eighth inning of Sunday’s game against the Cubs. Braun got thrown out for a bat flip after he argued a called third strike. He finished 1-for-4 with a home run before being tossed. Logan Schafer replaced him in left field. (Rotoworld)
  • Rob Brantly scored twice while going 2-for-3 with a walk during Sunday’s loss to the Reds. Brantly is hitting just .200 with zero home runs and three RBI in 50 at-bats, and Sunday’s pair of runs were his first two of the season. The Marlins still figure to give him the bulk of the playing time behind the dish as they evaluate the rookie’s long-term prospects, but backup Miguel Olivo – who homered Sunday as a pinch hitter – could begin to eat into Brantly’s at-bats if the youngster does not pick things up offensively. (Rotowire)
  • Chris Johnson is expected to assume everyday duty at third base when Freddie Freeman returns from the disabled list Monday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Though the Braves broke camp with Chris Johnson and Juan Francisco in hard platoon, Johnson has separated himself in the competition with multi-hit games in seven of his past 11 starts. Both Johnson had played primarily first base while Freeman was out, allowing Francisco to play everyday as well at third base. Francisco’s regular starts should come to an end quickly. (Rotowire)
  • Braves pitcher Kris Medlen (1-2) surrendered season highs in runs (three) and hits (seven) over six innings during a 4-2 loss at Pittsburgh Sunday. The three runs allowed matched the season total Medlen allowed in his previous three starts as his ERA jumped to 2.16. The right-hander failed to preserve a 2-0 lead in the second inning and permitted another run in the sixth inning while taking his second loss. Last season, he finished with only one defeat in 50 appearances (12 starts). Medlen also struck out a season-high six batters and walked just one, giving him just one walk over his past two starts (13 innings). He earns the nod again Friday at Detroit, a team he held to one run in 6 2/3 innings during his only start against it in 2010.(CBS Sports)
  • Brewers reliever Jim Henderson picked up his fourth save with a clean inning Sunday against the Cubs. Henderson remains perfect in save opportunities and has an even 1.00 ERA in nine innings. He added two more strikeouts for 12 on the season. John Axford has been sharp lately, with five straight scoreless outings. Henderson’s job may be in jeopardy if he hits a rough patch, but he should remain the Brewers closer for the near future. (CBS Sports)
  • Wilton Lopez took the loss after surrendering two runs on three hits in the top of the ninth Sunday against the Diamondbacks. Called upon to fill in at closer for Rafael Betancourt, who had pitched the last two days, Lopez failed to preserve a 4-3 Rockies lead. For a team that has gotten solid performances across its lineup and pitching staff, Lopez stands as one of the few exceptions, as he now has a 9.00 ERA and 2.25 WHIP through nine outings. His struggles could lead Walt Weiss to plug in Matt Belisle or Rex Brothers as the top setup man to Betancourt, bumping Lopez down to sixth or seventh-inning duty. (Rotowire)
