Beachy's elbow feels strong after session
ATLANTA -- Braves right-hander Brandon Beachy said his right elbow felt fine after he threw a light bullpen session on Tuesday. Beachy was scheduled to start Wednesday's series finale against the Yankees, but the Braves announced on Monday that they plan to bump him back to Saturday.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said he's not worried about Beachy.

"He had a little sore [elbow] going, and we didn't want to take a [chance]," Gonzalez said. "He's fine."

Beachy has been the Braves' best starter this season. He leads the Major Leagues with a 1.98 ERA and has a 0.99 WHIP. After two solid months, Beachy said he's not opposed to receiving some extra rest.

"Can't hurt," Beachy said. "I want to be out there as often as I can, but I'm not going to complain about getting a couple extra days of rest."

Beachy is scheduled to throw another bullpen session on Wednesday.
