CINCINNATI (AP) -Edgar Renteria saw one pitch before leaving Atlanta's game against the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night with an apparent ankle injury.
The Braves' shortstop had missed 17 games since Aug. 3 with a sprained ankle. He was activated from the 15-day disabled list before the game.
Renteria took a ball from Reds starter Bronson Arroyo, slightly lifting and striding with his left foot before briefly stumbling backward. He stepped out of the batter's box and was attended to by a team trainer, with manager Bobby Cox joining the discussion.
Renteria was replaced by Yunel Escobar, who grounded out.
Renteria was batting second in Atlanta's lineup. He entered the night hitting .336 with 11 home runs and 53 RBIs in 105 games.
Also Wednesday, the Braves optioned infielder Martin Prado to Triple-A Richmond.
