Julio Teheran was lit up for seven hits and seven runs over three sluggish innings Sunday in the Braves’ loss to the Brewers.

He walked two and struck out three. Teheran came out flat today, allowing a run in each inning that he pitched. He served up a two-run shot to Travis Shaw in the first before yielding a solo blast to Keon Broxton an inning later. Teheran has now lost two straight following a five-start unbeaten streak. He’ll carry a 5.30 ERA into his next start Saturday at Oakland.

Ender Inciarte led the Braves with two hits Sunday in a 7-0 loss to the Brewers.

Both of his hits were singles. Inciarte went 2-for-4 while his teammates combined for just three hits in 26 at-bats (.116 AVG). The 26-year-old has erupted this month, batting .356 over 101 June at-bats. He’s hitting .309 for the year with 31 RBI and 10 steals.

Matt Kemp (hamstring) has been added to the Braves' lineup on Sunday.

Kemp had been slated to miss a third straight start with a tight hamstring, but he talked his way into the lineup. He's in left field and batting cleanup against Zach Davies and the Brewers.

Matt Kemp (hamstring) remained out of the Braves' lineup Sunday.

Kemp hasn't played since his left hamstring tightened up on him Thursday. The hope is that he'll be ready to go Tuesday following Monday's off day. Danny Santana is in left field.

R.A. Dickey allowed just one run on five hits through seven innings to beat the Brewers 3-1 on Saturday.

He gave up a run in the first inning but then cruised the rest of the way. He whiffed six batters and issued one free pass in the drama-free outing. The veteran knuckle-baller eats a lot of innings for the Braves but doesn't offer a whole lot of fantasy value in mixed leagues. He improves to 6-5 with a 4.63 ERA and 1.39 WHIP through 15 starts. He has a paltry 58 strikeouts in 91 1/3 innings.

Jim Johnson struck out two batters in the ninth inning while earning a save against the Brewers on Saturday.

He allowed a single to Jesus Aguilar with two outs but was able to punch out rookie Lewis Brinson to sew up the save. Johnson has endured a couple of bad outings recently but didn't have much trouble this afternoon. He has 15 saves and a 3.86 ERA on the season.

Brandon Phillips walloped a two-run homer to provide the winning margin against the Brewers on Saturday.

He took starter Matt Garza over the wall with a runner aboard in the third inning for his seventh longball of the season. The veteran second baseman has seen an uptick in his production in his first campaign with the Braves after many years in Cincinnati. He has a .306 batting average that would be the highest of his career if he can keep it up. He has scored 39 runs, driven in 28 and stolen seven bases in 67 games.
Jun 24 - 8:47 PM

Matt Kemp (hamstring) remains out of the Braves' starting lineup on Saturday.

Kemp exited Thursday's game due to tightness in his left hamstring and hasn't returned since. Jace Peterson is starting in left field and batting eighth for the Braves against Matt Garza and the Brewers on Saturday.

Brandon Phillips went 2-for-5 with a homer and two RBI in Friday’s 5-4 victory over the Brewers.

Phillips got the Braves on the board with a solo shot off Jimmy Nelson in the first inning before knocking in another run with a double in the fifth. The 35-year-old left Thursday’s game with left groin tightness, but clearly he’s feeling a lot better. Phillips has turned back the clock so far this season by batting .303/.347/.450 with six homers, 26 RBI, seven steals, and 37 runs scored through 66 games.
Jun 23 - 11:34 PM

Mike Foltynewicz walked away with the victory after holding the Brewers to one run in five innings of work on Friday.

The lone run scored on a solo homer off the bat of Keon Broxton in the fourth inning. Folty gave up four hits and three walks while striking out nine batters, so he needed 104 pitches to complete five innings. He’s now won five out of his last six decisions to move to 5-5 on the year. He’ll bring a 4.10 ERA into a tasty matchup against the Padres in San Diego next week.
Jun 23 - 11:33 PM

Arodys Vizcaino notched his first save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Brewers.

Jim Johnson was unavailable after throwing 39 pitches over the previous two days. Vizcaino gave up a leadoff double to Eric Thames to begin the ninth inning, but Dansby Swanson bailed him out with a nice play at third base. Vizcaino then retired the final two batters he faced to lock down the victory. The 26-year-old owns a strong 1.99 ERA and 36/9 K/BB ratio through 31 2/3 innings. He’s the natural fallback to Johnson for the closer role.

Freddie Freeman (wrist) is hoping to begin a rehab assignment in 7-10 days.

That's after the end of the Braves' road trip. Freeman was cleared to begin taking dry swings on Friday and will continue a hitting progression over the next few days. The slugger said earlier this week that he was hoping to return prior to the All-Star break, and it looks like he'll have a chance to do just that. Freeman has been working out at third base and could be used at the position upon activation as the Braves look for a way to keep Matt Adams' bat in the lineup.
Jun 23 - 4:48 PM

Brandon Phillips (groin) is back in the Braves' lineup Friday.

Phillips was lifted from Thursday's game with a tight left groin, but he didn't need to miss a start he's at second base and batting second against Jimmy Nelson and the Brewers.
Jun 23 - 4:27 PM

Matt Kemp (hamstring) is not in the Braves' lineup Friday.

Kemp exited Thursday's game with a tight left hamstring. It's been a recurring issue for him this season. Danny Santana is in left field.
Jun 23 - 4:26 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) has been cleared to take dry swings.

Freeman was given the go-ahead after having a follow-up CT scan Friday. It's the first step in a hitting progression for him that's going to take a while, but the slugger hopes to return around the All-Star break. Freeman has been working out at third base, as he could switch positions so Matt Adams can stay at first base.
