"Obviously, the way he fell down there, it doesn't look good," said Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez after the game.
The 23-year-old had allowed no runs in four innings of work over four appearances before Tuesday.
The Braves will now rely on left-handed reliever Eric O'Flaherty, who is the only other active left-handed reliever in the team's bullpen. Left-hander Jonny Venters is on the disabled list with an elbow injury and isn't scheduled to throw again for at least another two weeks.
