The Atlanta Braves scratched outfielder Joc Pederson from their lineup for Tuesday's game against the host New York Mets due to an upset stomach.

Ehire Adrianza will assume Pederson's place as Atlanta's right fielder and leadoff batter.

Pederson, 29, was traded from the Chicago Cubs to the Braves on July 15. In 11 games for Atlanta thus far, Pederson is batting .273 with two home runs, two doubles and nine RBIs.

For the season, Pederson is only managing a .237 batting average and has 13 home runs, 13 doubles and 48 RBIs. He spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
