|Jonny Venters to throw off a mound Wednesday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(3/2/14) Braves reliever Jonny Venters will throw off a mound Wednesday, according to MLB.com.
Venters will be throwing with limited effort. He's attempting to return after having his second Tommy John surgery. Venters is hoping to return to action in May or June. Venters posted a 3.22 ERA in 58 2/3 innings in 2012.
|Jonny Venters OK with slow rehab process |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/17/14) Braves reliever Jonny Venters (elbow) is slated to throw off a mound March 5 following two more weeks long tossing, according to MLB.com. Venters is on a slower rehab pace than the first time he underwent Tommy John surgery in 2005.
"The way I went about [rehab] was so much different than the first time," Venters said. "From Day 1 of the throwing program the first time, I was trying to throw hard and constantly pushing. I was constantly sore and never feeling good.
"My main goal is once I get on the mound, just to be able to find my delivery and be able to repeat it. Once I start throwing harder, it'll just be that much easier to repeat, and stuff like that."

(2/11/14) Braves reliever Jonny Venters is looking to return in late May or early June, according to MLB.com.
Venters is recovering from his second Tommy John surgery. He's been able to long toss without pain, and appears to be making progress. He hasn't pitched in the majors since 2012.
|Jonny Venters gets a one-year deal |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(11/13/13) The Braves signed reliever Jonny Venters to a one-year deal worth $1.625 million, avoiding arbitration, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Venters is working on returning from his second Tommy John surgery, and he could be ready as soon as late April. He did not pitch at all during the 2013 season and had surgery in May.
|The 2013 season was over before it even started for Braves reliever Jonny Venters. The left-handed setup man hurt his elbow late in spring training and tried to rehab the injury before ultimately succumbing to Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career. Venters first had the surgery in 2005. Though, the good news is that Venters successfully bounced back from the surgery the first time, so there is plenty of hope he will be as successful returning from the procedure a second time. Venters has emerged as one of the top setup men in the majors, recording 20-plus holds for three straight seasons from 2010-12. However, Luis Avilan, Jordan Walden and David Carpenter all emerged as viable setup men in Venters' absence last season, so he might have to prove healthy and productive before being placed in late-inning situations again. We know Venters has upside, but there could be risk to drafting him in leagues that reward for holds since the opportunities could be limited in a loaded Braves bullpen.
