Ben Sheets (shoulder) goes on DL
Sheets lost his third straight start on Thursday night as part of Atlanta's six-man rotation. He won four of his first five starts.
The Braves do not intend to replace him in the rotation and recalled right-hander Miguel Batista from Triple-A to pitch out of the bullpen.
