 CHICAGO (AP) -Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz had his scheduled start pushed back from Sunday to Tuesday because of discomfort in his right shoulder and an injured right pinkie finger.
Smoltz, who is 7-2 with a 2.82 ERA, is expected to start one of the doubleheader games against Florida.
Right-hander Lance Cormier will be activated from the 15-day disabled list and start Sunday against the Chicago Cubs. Cormier was on the DL with a strained right triceps and was 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA in four minor league rehab starts.
