• Jonny Venters said his left arm reacted favorably after he completed a bullpen session and warmed up twice without entering Sunday's win over the Rockies. Venters had been sidelined since completing back-to-back appearances against the Phillies on Tuesday and Wednesday.

• Chipper Jones' bothersome left knee has responded favorably during the past two flights. Jones was in the lineup for Monday night's series opener against the Cubs, but instead of batting second when he filled in for Martin Prado this past weekend, he batted sixth while Prado assumed his normal spot.

• Stefan Gartrell was named the International League's Player of the Week after hitting hit .400 (8-for-20) with three home runs and an .850 slugging percentage in five games with Gwinnett last week.
