In two roster moves, the Atlanta Braves brought back Brian McCann from paternity leave and Tyler Pastornicky from Triple-A Gwinnett. The move also sent J.C. Boscan back to Gwinnett.

McCann returns to the Braves from the birth of his first child on Friday, but Pastornicky was re-called to fill the roster spot vacated by Andrelton Simmons when he broke his hand. The move was especially important after last night's game against the New York Mets when Jack Wilson dislocated his pinky.

Martin Prado will start at shortstop for the Braves and filled in the last half of the game last night there. He has now played every infield position other than catcher and left field this year.

Eric Hinske will start in Prado's usual left field spot.
