Braves place Schafer on DL, call up Terdoslavich

ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Braves have placed outfielder Jordan Schafer on the 15-day disabled list with a right ankle contusion and have called up outfielder Joey Terdoslavich from AAA Gwinnett.

Schafer has been limited since fouling a ball off his ankle on June 26. He was limping after running out a pinch-hit infield single on Tuesday and only jogged when he grounded out in another pinch-hit appearance on Wednesday night.

Terdoslavich was hitting .318 with 18 homers and 58 RBIs at Gwinnett and has been named to the Futures and AAA All-Star games. He was expected to be with the team for Thursday night's game against Miami.

A former third baseman, Terdoslavich has played the corner outfield spots this year.
