Brandon Beachy moves to 60-day disabled list


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) Braves pitcher Brandon Beachy has been moved to the 60-day disabled list.

Beachy was initially placed on the 15-day disabled list, but underwent Tommy John surgery. He's expected to miss the entire 2014 season due to the surgery. Beachy posted a 4.50 ERA in 30 innings last year.


Braves place five pitchers on 15-day DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2014) The Braves announced Sunday they placed five pitchers on the 15-day disabled list. All moves were retroactive to March 21.

Two of the pitchers going on the disabled list were Brandon Beachy and Kris Medlen, who are both out for the season following Tommy John surgery. The three other pitchers going on the DL are Mike Minor (left shoulder tendinitis), Gavin Floyd (right elbow) and Jonny Venters (left elbow).

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Minor and Floyd could join the rotation by late April, if they suffer no setbacks. Floyd is scheduled to pitch two innings in a minor-league game Friday, and Minor will do the same Saturday.


It's official: Brandon Beachy to go under knife Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) What was feared and speculated upon is now set in stone: The Braves have announced that right-hander Brandon Beachy will undergo his second Tommy John surgery Friday in Los Angeles. He is out for the season.

Beachy, who used renowned surgeon James Andrews for his last procedure, will use Dr. Neil ElAttrache for this one. ElAttrache performed the surgery on Roy Halladay last summer.

The announcement comes as another blow to the Atlanta pitching staff, which has already lost ace Kris Medlen for the year. Beachy missed nearly all of last season as he recovered from Tommy John surgery.


Report: Brandon Beachy to have Tommy John on Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) Braves right-hander Brandon Beachy will undergo Tommy John surgery on Friday, per MLBDailyDish.com. That would eliminate any chance of him pitching this season.

Beachy is painfully familiar with the procedure. He lost all but five games of the 2013 season following the same surgery.

The 27-year-old was once a promising prospect. He went 12-8 combined in 2011 and 2012 with 237 strikeouts in 222 2/3 innings. A second Tommy John surgery could put his career in jeopardy.


Report: Brandon Beachy slated to get another opinion


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) Nothing definitive came from Braves starting pitcher Brandon Beachy's meeting with Dr. James Andrews Monday, a source told MLBDailyDish.com. He is now scheduled to meet with Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles Tuesday.

Beachy has been out since last week due to tightness in his right arm and biceps. Beachy made just five starts last season as he was returning from Tommy John surgery.


Brandon Beachy and Kris Medlen to see Dr. James Andrews


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) Braves pitchers Brandon Beachy and Kris Medlen will see Dr. James Andrews Monday, according to MLB.com.

Medlen is expected to need a second Tommy John surgery after initial tests showed damage to his elbow. Beachy's visit to Dr. Andrews is more concerning. Beachy has been dealing with some arm tightness, and forearm issues, and the team is worried about his status. Beachy missed most of 2013 while recovering from Tommy John surgery.


Braves 'concerned' about Brandon Beachy


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Braves general manager Frank Wren told MLB Network Radio Wednesday the team is "concerned" about starting pitcher Brandon Beachy, who left his spring start Monday with tightness in his right arm and biceps.

"He's not progressing as much as we'd like. You're always concerned about health," Wren said.


Brandon Beachy to miss next spring start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said starting pitcher Brandon Beachy (biceps) will miss at least his next spring start, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Gonzalez said Beachy is getting more tests done on his arm.

Braves believe Brandon Beachy's soreness is normal


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) The Braves believe pitcher Brandon Beachy's arm soreness is normal, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Beachy is dealing with a bout of biceps tightness, but said his elbow ligament is fine. The team thinks Beachy is experiencing normal soreness related to his Tommy John surgery. Given the recent injury to Kris Medlen, the team will want to be cautious with Beachy.

He posted a 4.50 ERA in 30 innings last year.


Brandon Beachy dealing with tightness, says ligament is fine


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) Braves pitcher Brandon Beachy has tightness in his arm and biceps muscle after leaving Monday's start but says his ligament is fine, MLB.com reports.

"I'm not worried at all about it," Beachy said. "I've seen the doctors, and they've done everything. My ligament is fine. I've got some inflammation in there and it got a little too tight in my bicep. It was just unproductive to keep pushing and fighting through it. I'm not scared at all. I didn't come in here feeling 100 percent. This is something I've been dealing with. It had been getting easier the harder I threw and the harder I pushed. Today, it just got a little too tight on me."

Beachy only threw 14 of his 37 pitches for strikes Monday and couldn't throw his fastball faster than 88 mph. He's faced a long road back since Tommy John surgery in June 2012 and elbow inflammation last year, but the road isn't quite over yet.


Brandon Beachy leaves start with 'discomfort' in biceps


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) Braves starting pitcher Brandon Beachy said he had to cut his spring start short Monday against the Phillies because he experienced "discomfort" in his right biceps.

Beachy said he was unable to locate pitches as he wanted. He added he was bothered by the injury in his previous two starts, but the discomfort worsened Monday. He said he has been told the injury is something he could pitch through in hopes of loosening up, but it got tighter Monday.

Beachy is uncertain if he will be ready for the start of the season.

"We'll see. We'll see how it recovers," Beachy said.

Beachy tossed two scoreless innings, allowing two hits and two walks. He struck out one before leaving the game Monday.


Brandon Beachy doesn't surrender a hit Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Braves pitcher Brandon Beachy did not give up a hit during his spring start Wednesday.

Beachy managed to go three innings, striking out one hitter. The only blemish on his stat line was a walk to Domonic Brown in the second inning. Beachy posted a 4.50 ERA in 30 innings last season.


Brandon Beachy surrenders two runs in spring debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2014) Braves pitcher Brandon Beachy gave up two earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out one in 1 2/3 innings in Friday's spring debut as the Braves fell to the Astros, 7-5.

Beachy underwent arthroscopic elbow surgery in late September but he should be good to handle his normal preparation this spring. He made just five starts last season, going 2-1 with a 4.50 ERA in 30 innings.


Braves expect Brandon Beachy to be '100 percent'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez reaffirmed in an interview Monday with MLB Network Radio starting pitcher Brandon Beachy (elbow) is healthy and has a rotation spot heading into 2014.

"We expect him to be 100 percent recovered from Tommy John surgery," Gonzalez said. "He's coming to spring training fresh and he'll be in one of those rotation spots."


Brandon Beachy will have no limitations in spring training


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) Braves starting pitcher Brandon Beachy, who underwent arthroscopic elbow surgery in late September, said he will not have any limitations when spring training begins, according to MLB.com. However, he said he will make sure to pace himself during the early portion of spring training.

Braves avoid arbitration with Brandon Beachy


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/16/2013) The Braves announced on Monday they reached an agreement on a one-year deal with starting pitcher Brandon Beachy, thus avoiding arbitration. According to SB Nation, Beachy will earn $1.45 million.

Beachy spent most of the 2013 season working his way back from Tommy John surgery, but he returned to the team in late July and made five starts, going 2-1 with a 4.50 ERA.


Braves tender lengthy list of arbitration candidates


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) Faced with a bevy of arbitration-eligible players ahead of Monday's non-tender deadline, the Braves opted to bring back all but three of them. Only one was actually signed to a contract, as the team agreed to undisclosed terms on a one-year deal with infielder Ramiro Pena, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The team also tendered contracts to nine other players, whose salaries for 2014 will be determined by the arbitration process, unless contracts can be agreed upon. Pitchers Craig KimbrelBrandon Beachy, Kris Medlen, Mike Minor and Jordan Walden; infielders Freddie Freeman and Chris Johnson and outfielders Jason Heyward and Jordan Schafer will all return to the team next season. 


Brandon Beachy has arthroscopic elbow surgery


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2013) Braves pitcher Brandon Beachy underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow on Thursday. He is expected to be ready to pitch in spring training, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Beachy finished with a 2-1 record, 4.50 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 23:4 K:BB ratio in 30 innings over five starts.

Brandon Beachy expected to miss remainder of regular season


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2013) Braves pitcher Brandon Beachy is expected to miss the remainder of the regular season, MLB.com reports. However, manager Fredi Gonzalez said Friday that there's a chance Beachy will be given instructional-league work at some point.

Beachy has been out since Aug. 20 due to right elbow inflammation. He appears to be finishing the season with a 2-1 record, 4.50 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 23:4 K:BB ratio in 30 innings over five starts.


Brandon Beachy to resume throwing


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2013) Braves pitcher Brandon Beachy (elbow) is expected to resume throwing Monday or Tuesday, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. He's expected to do light stuff early on and still doesn't have a timetable to return to the club. It is unknown if he'll be able to pitch again this season. 

Brandon Beachy stops throwing program


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2013) Braves pitcher Brandon Beachy has stopped his throwing program, according to MLB.com.

Beachy was able to come back from Tommy John surgery, but tossed just five games before his elbow started acting up. By stopping his throwing program this late in the year, it seems unlikely he would be able to return.

Beachy has a 4.50 ERA in five starts. 


Good news, bad news for Brandon Beachy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/28/2013) OK, you can drop Brandon Beachy now.

I know I was urging caution when we didn't know the extent of his injury just a few days ago, and I know word back from Dr. James Andrews Tuesday of no structural damage was, in the grand scheme of things, good. But the timetable offered for Beachy's recovery simply won't cut it for owners in single-season leagues.

He's out until at least the third week of September. In a best-case of scenario, he'll have two weeks to contribute, and he won't even have the benefit of a rehab assignment. Minor-league play will have ended by then, meaning he might not have any choice but to go to the bullpen. Any starts he makes would likely be of the four- or five-inning, let's-get-our-rotation-lined-up-for-the-playoffs variety.

I own Beachy in a couple dynasty leagues, so rest assured, I was celebrating Tuesday's news along with Braves fans. But for Fantasy owners who need only consider the short-term, he might as well have had ligament damage.


Brandon Beachy dealing with inflammation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) Braves starting pitcher Brandon Beachy has been diagnosed with just elbow inflammation, and is not yet dealing with a major issue. 

Beachy received that diagnosis, as well as a prescription for 10-14 days of rest, when he visited Dr. James Andrews Monday. Beachy expressed relief that he would not require another surgery on his right elbow, after undergoing Tommy John surgery last year.

"There was some nervousness and then some relief," Beachy told MLB.com. "It's not fun going down there. It's just kind of a sullen atmosphere down there. You see a lot of guys walking in who know they are going to be walking out with new scars on their bodies."

Beachy is likely out until at least the third week of September, and could return in the bullpen, if that is what the team needs and his timeline dictates.

"I think of myself as a starter and I plan to be a starter in the future," Beachy said. "But I'm no dummy. You look at the timing of everything. I'm willing to help this team any way I can."


Brandon Beachy shut down for 10 days


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2013) After meeting with Dr. James Andrews, Braves starting pitcher Brandon Beachy will be shut down for 10 days before the team makes its next move on his recovery. Beachy would like to start again, but is willing to pitch out of the bullpen, if healthy this season, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Don't do anything rash with Brandon Beachy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/23/2013) I'll admit it doesn't look good for Brandon Beachy. He's going to visit Dr. James Andrews after feeling soreness in his surgically repaired right elbow last time out, and the Braves -- who may or may not already know the results of his latest MRI -- already seem to be preparing for life without him, acquiring 37-year-old right-hander Freddy Garcia in a deal with the Orioles Friday.

But because we'll know for sure on Monday, after Beachy meets with Dr. Andrews, I don't see the harm in holding out on any roster moves until then. Particularly if you stashed Beachy throughout his recovery from Tommy John surgery in April, May, June and July, you might as well see your investment through to the end. You showed such patience with him in the first place because you knew his potential was greater than whatever you could find on the waiver wire, and you were most likely pleased -- not thrilled, but satisfied -- with the returns so far.

I'm a realist. I get that the chances of Beachy missing the rest of the season  -- whether because of inflammation or (gulp) another tear -- are probably better than 50 percent, but unless a trendy sleeper like Alex Wood or Sonny Gray was calling to me on waivers, I'd hold out until the bitter end. That Rick Porcello claim can wait until Monday.
