Groin injury sidelines Berkman
The Braves are missing shortstop Yunel Escobar, who is day to day with a strained left adductor.
Berkman missed the first 12 games of the season following arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on March 13.
Omar Infante is filling in for Escobar, who suffered his injury Thursday at St. Louis.
Also, Braves manager Bobby Cox plans to push back right-hander Jair Jurrjens' next start to May 8. Jurrjens suffered a strained left hamstring in Thursday's start.
