Braves make several roster moves

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - The Atlanta Braves made several roster moves on Tuesday, including recalling outfielder Nate McLoouth from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Also, the team recalled first baseman Troy Glaus from his rehabilitation assignment at Gwinnett and stated that he will be activated on Thursday and optioned pitcher Kenshin Kawakami to Danville of the Rookie Advanced league.

Atlanta also announced its September call-ups as pitchers Mike Dunn, Scott Proctor and Kawakami, catcher J.C. Boscan and first baseman Freddie Freeman will join the team on Wednesday.

Glaus, who has been on the DL since August 18 with a sore left knee, is batting .239 with 16 home runs and 70 runs batted in over 115 games this season. However, he has been mired in a prolonged slump, hitting just .173 over his last 51 games since June 13.

McLouth has batted .168 with three homers and 14 RBI in 62 games with Atlanta this season.

Kawakami is just 1-6 in 16 games (15 starts) with a 4.75 earned run average.
