CHICAGO (AP) -The Atlanta Braves activated pitcher Lance Cormier from the 15-day disabled list before Sunday's start against the Chicago Cubs and optioned infielder Marin Prado to Triple-A Richmond.
John Smoltz had his scheduled start pushed to Tuesday because of discomfort in his right shoulder and an injured right pinkie finger. So Cormier, who was 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA in four minor league rehab starts, made his regular-season debut.
Prado batted .179 in eight games with the Braves.
