The Braves have placed righty reliever Peter Moylan on the 15-day disabled list due to a lower back strain. Moylan has pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Braves so far this year and he is 1-0 with a 4.15 ERA and a 2.31 WHIP. The Braves will miss Moylan as he pitches pretty much every other day when he’s healthy. The Braves activated 25-year old righty starting pitcher Jair Jurrjens before the second game of the doubleheader with the Mets and he was the winning pitcher after working the first seven innings in which he shut out the Mets. He only gave up 2 hits and 1 walk while whiffing 4 batters as he looked really sharp.
UPDATE: (5/11/2011) - Peter Moylan will undergo back surgery next week to repair a herniated disc. His season is likely over.
