Atlanta Braves catcher Gerald Laird has finally resumed baseball activities Wednesday afternoon for the first time since a procedure to remove kidney stones last week, reports.

Laird worked out Wednesday with Class-A Rome. The Braves currently have him scheduled to play a minor league rehab game with Triple-A Gwinnett before being activated Saturday.

In the midst of the Braves having several standard injuries, Laird started struggling with trying to pass a kidney stone at the end of July. He has hit .293 in 28 games this season.
