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. Jul 5 - 4:11 AM
