The Braves placed catcher Tyler Flowers on the disabled list Friday with a left oblique strain. He left Thursday’s game in the second inning with left oblique discomfort.

Flowers played in one spring training game after March 19, the exhibition at SunTrust Park on Monday. He said he was healthy enough to play opening day.

The Braves selected the contract of right-hander Miguel Socolovich from Triple-A to fill the open spot. They transferred left-hander Jacob Lindgren, who underwent Tommy John surgery and will miss the season, to the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster.
