Bob Wickman to the DL.

Well it now makes sense on why Bob Wickman has been struggling recently. He's been injured. The Atlanta Braves have placed closer, Wickman, on the DL and have activated Chad Paronto from the DL.

From AJC:

The Braves have placed closer Bob Wickman on the disabled list and activated reliever Chad Paronto.

Wickman struggled in three appearances the past five days, blowing leads Wednesday against Florida and Sunday against Colorado. He also had to be removed in the ninth inning Friday night against Colorado.

The veteran righthander has allowed five hits, six runs and six walks in 1 2/3 innings in his past three games.

More details on the injury and the amount of time he will be missing aren't out yet, but I will update as they are released.
