“(The extra body) is kind of good with Ender (Inciarte) being day-to-day. (Mustelier) is aggressive, the perfect guy to run up there and pinch hit. We hope to put him to good use,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said.
The timetable for centerfielder Inciarte’s return from a groin injury is not certain, with Monday afternoon’s game at Philadelphia a more comfortable possibility than a game on a new field with some iffy weather projections. “Who knows if we’re going to have a rain delay or what,” Snitker said. “A wet field would not be a good situation for him right now. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.”
