Luiz Gohara has rejoined the Braves after taking nine days off to visit his mother in Brazil.
The reliever was granted a leave of absence after his mother underwent heart surgery, but the procedure went far better than was expected, so he returned to Atlanta for Sunday’s game against the Nationals.
