The Atlanta Braves activated recently-acquired day disabled list on Friday.

Wilson, who was obtained from the Seattle Mariners prior to the waiver trading deadline on Wednesday, had been sidelined since August 18 with a bruised left heel. He hit .249 with 11 RBI in 62 games for Seattle this season.

The Braves also released infielder Julio Lugo, while announcing that right- hander Jair Jurrjens has been scratched from Sunday's scheduled start due to a sore right knee.

An MRI revealed no structural damage, but Jurrjens will seek a second opinion from Dr. Richard Steadman in Colorado this weekend.

Randall Delgado will start in Jurrjens' place Sunday against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
