Well That Didn't Take Long

Frenchy back with the big boysJeff Francoeur's were calmed by his return to the big leagues Monday, after the Atlanta Braves had given him what was supposed to be up to a three week hiatus.

His speedy return may not have had anything to do with hurt feelings, but three solid minor league appearances didn't slow things down. The 24-year-old right fielder batted .548 (7-for-13) with two RBIs -- including a 4-for-5 day on Sunday -- for the Class Double-A Mississippi Braves.

Since a player may be recalled from the minors in less than 10 days only to replace an injury, the timing of three players' trips to the DL (relief pitchers Jeff Bennett and Manny Acosta and utilityman Omar Infante) was impeccable and fortunate for Francoeur, who was hitting just .234 when he was optioned to the minors on Friday. Welcome back, buddy!
