PEARL, Miss. — Mike Hampton will make his second rehabilitation start Wednesday for Double-A Mississippi.

Hampton has had two elbow surgeries and hasn't pitched in the major leagues since 2005. He earned a spot in the Braves' starting rotation in spring training, but has strained his left pectoral muscle twice since.

The left-hander will start in a home game against Carolina. He gave up six hits and two runs in five innings against Jacksonville on July 10, in his first rehab start with Mississippi.
