Escalona out, Abreu up

The Astros have placed Sergio Escalona on the DL with elbow tendinitis and called up Juan Abreu from OKC.

So of the four players the Braves traded for Michael Bourn, Abreu is the second to see time with the ML team. And he's the third player from the spate of deadline trades to see the majors (Sosa, Schafer, Abreu).
