Venters was shut down after he continued to battle some inflammation around his left shoulder during his March 18 appearance against the Orioles. The 26-year-old reliever likened the ailment to what he battled while sidelined for a few days last season.
The Braves were happy when Venters reported no discomfort after completing a 25-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday at Champion Stadium.
"I felt really good," Venters said. "It feels like new now."
Despite missing a few days in early July last year, Venters still finished the season with a Major League-high 85 appearances. His 164 appearances over the past two seasons also rank as the Majors' highest total.
