 ATLANTA (AP) -The Atlanta Braves called up catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia from Double-A Mississippi and put the top prospect in Wednesday night's starting lineup against Philadelphia.
Saltalamacchia is needed after starter Brian McCann bruised his finger and backup Brayan Pena felt concussion symptoms Tuesday night.
Pena was placed on the 15-day disabled list.
The Braves also placed starting pitcher Mark Redman on the 15-day DL with a toe injury and purchased Kevin Barry's contract from Triple-A Richmond. Barry was 1-1 with a 5.61 ERA in 19 games, including one start, for Atlanta last season.
McCann took a hit on his left ring finger and had to leave Tuesday night's game. McCann first injured the finger while trying to bunt 10 days ago.
Saltalamacchia, the team's top draft pick in 2002, was hitting .309 with six homers at Mississippi.
Redman is 0-4 with a 10.62 ERA after lasting only 1 2-3 innings in Tuesday night's 6-4 loss to the Phillies. He will have surgery to repair an ingrown toenail.
Right-hander Tanyon Sturtze was moved to the 60-day disabled list to clear a roster spot for Saltalamacchia.
