Braves Recall Francoeur After only 3 Minors Games

ATLANTA (AP) - Jeff Francoeur's stay in the minor leagues has
already ended.

Francoeur, who had four hits with Double-A Mississippi on
Sunday, was recalled to the Atlanta Braves on Monday and will be
with the team in Monday night's game at the Los Angeles Dodgers,
general manager Frank Wren told The Associated Press.

Francoeur, hitting only .234, was sent to Mississippi on Friday.

The Braves said Sunday they will place three players on the disabled list Monday: pitchers Manny Acosta and Jeff Bennett and utility player Omar Infante. Infante hurt his hamstring while playing in right field, Francoeur's position.
