Hector Olivera, just days away from being inserted in the Atlanta Braves’ lineup as the every-day third baseman, went 1-for-4 in his second injury rehab game with the Gwinnett Braves Friday night.

Olivera also scored a run. His single gave him a .429 average after two games in Triple-A. He went 2-for-3 Thursday night.

Olivera told the AJC’s Jeff Schultz that expects to play only three games or four games with Gwinnett. That would mean he might play for the big-league team as soon as Monday against Colorado at Turner Field.
