B.J. Upton did pretty much exactly what he did before he got hurt. The Atlanta Braves center fielder went hitless in his first minor league rehab start with Triple-A Gwinnett.

Upton, recovering from a strained right adductor muscle, went 0-for-3 with a strikeout, flyout and groundout while batting lead-off for Gwinnett against the Charlotte Knights.

As far as lineups are concerned, Upton should keep his Major League-worst .177 batting average in the minors a while longer.
