Bourn remains sidelined with sprained left thumb
ATLANTA -- Braves center fielder Michael Bourn was out of the lineup for the sixth straight game Saturday because of a sprained left thumb. Bourn sustained the injury on Sept. 22 in Philadelphia and has been considered day to day for the last week.

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.
