Manager Fredi Gonzalez said the Braves were playing it safe with their All-Star because they want to do all they can to avoid even a minor setback this late in the season.
"The big thing is we don't want a setback," Gonzalez said. "That's the biggest scare. We're running out of games and we don't want to get a setback."
Gonzalez said there was a "good chance" Bourn would return to action for Sunday's series finale against the Mets.
