Gerald Laird (oblique) returned to the Braves lineup without missing a beat on Friday, going 2-for-4 with a run scored in a victory over the Diamondbacks.
The veteran backstop sat out the previous three contests due to a strained right oblique. He will continue to share the bulk of the playing time with Christian Bethancourt while Evan Gattis is stowed away on the disabled list. Sat, Jul 5, 2014 04:11:00 AM
