Pastornicky suffered a sprained left knee and is listed as day-to-day.
The injury is a major blow to Pastornicky who was called up from Triple-A Gwinett on Tuesday to replace Uggla, who went on the DL after undergoing laser eye surgery. He was in a position to play regularly until Uggla returns and into September following roster expansion.
