The buzz of Freddie Freeman’s All-Star vote wore off quickly as injuries to the Braves outfield took a nightmarish turn Friday night. A 4-2 loss to the Reds looked like the least of the Braves problems by the time it was over.

The day after Jason Heyward left with a strained hamstring, B.J. Upton went down in center field with a strained adductor muscle in the first inning Friday. His brother Justin Upton departed six innings later after straining his left calf running out a groundball to shortstop.

In a matter of about 26 hours, two games and 14 innings, the entire Braves’ starting outfield was sent to the training room. And Friday’s two injuries came on the heels of news that backup outfielder Jordan Schafer, already on the DL, has a stress fracture in his right ankle and is out at least three to four more weeks.

The Braves recalled outfielder Jose Constanza from Triple-A Gwinnett after the s game just to help them get through the two games before the All-Star break. They plan to announce a corresponding move Saturday when they’ll re-evaluate all three injuries.

“Everybody is going to go through injuries and teams that survive those injuries during the course of the year are going to be there at the end,” Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “You feel pretty good that we can survive those injuries. We have to survive it. It’s our turn.”

The Braves were hoping to get through the weekend with Reed Johnson starting for Heyward and both Joey Terdoslavich and Tyler Pastornicky backing up. Johnson, Terdoslavich and Pastornicky made up the outfield at the end of Friday’s game.

Pastornicky had played only three games in his professional career in center field - all with Gwinnett – before entering the eighth inning in center field Friday night.

“Unfortunately it goes that way sometimes,” B.J. Upton said of the injuries afterward. “We’re a good enough ball club to get things done and luckily we have the All-Star break coming up to get some guys some rest.”

Friday was the second straight game in the series when the Braves gave up multiple first-inning runs and lost an outfielder early. This time they couldn’t recover.

The Reds jumped on Kris Medlen for three runs in the first inning, which took a sour turn after Upton got hurt on a diving attempt at a Todd Frazier line drive that went for a triple.
