• Gonzalez spent Sunday night mapping out his lineups for the five games his team would play over the next four days against the Mets. He opted to rest the Upton brothers in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader. His decision to rest Jason Heyward against a right-handed pitcher (Shaun Marcum) on Wednesday and play him against a left-hander (Jon Niese) on Thursday was based on previous matchups. Heyward has gone 1-for-12 against Marcum and 8-for-20 against Niese.
• Utility infielder Ramiro Pena has seen his playing time minimized since he landed awkwardly on his right shoulder during the June 9 win over the Dodgers. The switch-hitting Pena, who had been starting at third base when the opposing team was starting a tough right-hander, has started just two of the past 10 games.
• Veteran scout Turner was at Turner Field on Wednesday, when the Braves signed their first-round pick Hursh. This marked the second time in the past four seasons Turner has been credited with signing Atlanta's first selection. His contributions to the 2010 Draft were first-round selection Matt Lipka, Andrelton Simmons and Evan Gattis.
