ATLANTA (AP) - Ryan Church is out of the starting lineup for the Atlanta Braves, who are also missing fellow outfielder Garret Anderson and infielder Martin Prado.

Church was held out Saturday night against Florida with back spasms. Omar Infante played left field, his first start of the season in the outfield. Reid Gorecki was in center.

Anderson left Thursday night's game with an inflamed sciatic nerve in his back. Prado could miss the entire series after he was diagnosed with "exertional headaches."

The Marlins held out first baseman Nick Johnson (sore right hamstring) and third baseman Jorge Cantu (stiff neck).

Florida manager Fredi Gonzalez said Cantu was available off the bench.
