The Atlanta Braves made a couple of roster moves ahead of Friday night’s game in Los Angeles. Southpaw Dylan Lee was returned from his rehab assignment, while outfielder Forrest Wall was recalled to Atlanta. Outfielder Sam Hilliard was transferred to the 60-day injured list.

Dylan Lee suffered a shoulder injury in mid-May and had been sidelined until he began rehabbing in Gwinnett. He tossed 7.1 innings in Triple-A before getting reinstated from the injured list.
Forrest Wall has appeared in just four big league games this season and has swiped two bags during his brief stint in the bigs. He’s stolen 52 bases in the minors this year, though, and will likely be used as a pinch runner in the future.
