Braves SS Paul Janish leaves game in Miami with dislocated left shoulder

Atlanta Braves shortstop Paul Janish dislocated his left shoulder Tuesday night diving for an infield hit in the ninth inning of their 4-3, 10-inning loss at Miami.

X-rays revealed no structural damage, but Janish said he doesn't expect to sidelined for long.

"I've probably done it eight or nine times before," he said. "Usually it just slides right back in. This is the first time I've ever had it get stuck and not be able to get it back in. They popped it back in. It's going to be sore for a few days."

Janish entered the game in the ninth. He's hitting .186 in 55 games.
