Braves' Avilan OK, hopes to avoid DL
APR 17, 2013 4:39p ET
The left-hander went down while pitching in the ninth inning Tuesday against the Kansas City Royals. But, after being checked out Wednesday morning before the finale of a two-game series, it appears he just had a severe cramp.
Avilan says his leg "is better now. It's way better now." He believes he'll be able to pitch again in a couple of days and hopes to avoid the 15-day disabled list.
The Braves already have two relievers on the DL: Jonny Venters and Cristhian Martinez.
