LOS ANGELES -- After initially balking at approving a trade to the Dodgers, Braves utility man Alberto Callaspo was pulled from the lineup for Tuesday night's game at Dodger Stadium with indications that the six-player deal sending third baseman Juan Uribe to Atlanta still might go through.
Because Callaspo signed as a free agent over the winter, he had the right to block any trade until June 15. The Braves announced that Callaspo was scratched again "due to trade talks being revisited."
