Mississippi Braves fans that were waiting until tonight’s game at Trustmark Park in Pearl to get a look at major leaguer Jeff Francoeur apparently are out of luck.
Francoeur will rejoin the Atlanta Braves in time for tonight’s game in Los Angeles against the Dodgers, general manager Frank Wren told The Associated Press.
Francoeur, solid in the Atlanta outfield the previous two years, was hitting only .234 when he was sent to Double-A Mississippi on Friday. He had four hits in Sunday’s 11-9 loss to the Chattanooga Lookouts and was recalled by Atlanta today.
The Braves said Sunday they will place three players on the disabled list today: pitchers Manny Acosta and Jeff Bennett and utility player Omar Infante. Infante hurt his hamstring while playing in right field, Francoeur’s position.
