Francoeur Back Up


ATLANTA (AP) -- Jeff Francoeur's stay in the minor leagues has
already ended.
Francoeur, who had four hits with Double-A Mississippi on
Sunday, was recalled to the Atlanta Braves on Monday and will be
with the team in Monday night's game at the Los Angeles Dodgers,
general manager Frank Wren told The Associated Press.
Francoeur, hitting only .234, was sent to Mississippi on Friday.
The Braves said Sunday they will place three players on the
disabled list Monday: pitchers Manny Acosta and Jeff Bennett and
utility player Omar Infante. Infante hurt his hamstring while
playing in right field, Francoeur's position.
