• The Braves have not yet made a decision about the next step for starter Brandon Beachy, who turned 27 years old on Tuesday, in his recovery from right elbow inflammation. The right-hander made five starts beginning in late July before landing on the 15-day disabled list shortly after his six-inning start against the Mets on Aug. 20.
• The Braves traded Minor League catcher Matt Pagnozzi to the Astros for cash considerations on Tuesday. In 90 games this season for Triple-A Gwinnett, Pagnozzi hit .210 with six home runs and 31 RBIs.
• Outfielder Jordan Schafer said he felt fine one day after he was forced to leave Monday's win with a lower back strain. Schafer felt his back tighten and spasm on a swing in the seventh inning and left the game after collecting his fourth hit on the next pitch.
"It's fine today," he said. "It's not wound up in a knot anymore."
