Staph infection on calf lands Braves OF Prado on DL
HOUSTON – Atlanta left fielder Martin Prado was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a staph infection in his right calf.
Prado had a procedure in Atlanta on Friday to clean out the infection. He is being treated with antibiotics.
He was examined by doctors from the Marlins in Florida and they sent him to Atlanta on Thursday night so he could prepare for Friday’s procedure.
Manager Fredi Gonzalez said he thinks the infection stemmed from a skin burn Prado got from a slide.

Prado is batting .277 with eight homers and 33 RBIs this season.
Infielder Brandon Hicks was recalled from Class AAA Gwinnett to take his roster spot. Gonzalez said Hicks, who was batting .252 with eight homers and 18 RBIs, can play second base, third base and shortstop.
Also on Friday, outfielder Jason Heyward, who is on the disabled list with a right shoulder injury, took swings off a tee for the first time since he was injured. Gonzalez said it’s too soon to say when he will return, but that he felt good after taking 70 swings.
