ATLANTA (AP) _ Tim Raines, sidelined since June 24 with a pulled right hamstring, returned to the Montreal lineup Saturday night for the Expos game against the Atlanta Braves.

To make room for Raines on the roster, the Expos optioned outfielder Herm Winningham to their Class AAA farm team at Indianapolis of the American Association.

Raines had a .274 batting average with seven home runs and 30 RBI before going on the 15-day disabled list.

Winningham batted .233 in 47 games and drove in six runs.
