ATLANTA -- Brandon Beachy threw a light 15-pitch bullpen session on Sunday morning after throwing 30 pitches in a side session on Saturday. The right-hander threw on back-to-back days ahead of the Braves' third off-day in eight days.
"It feels good," Beachy said. "I'm going to go out and play catch today, take an off-day tomorrow."
Beachy was headed for a June 18 return to the Braves rotation when he felt some inflammation in his elbow after his final rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett. The team has not set a timetable for any additional rehab starts in the Minors or other steps in his return from Tommy John surgery.
"It wasn't a rush bullpen session because we have an off-day tomorrow," pitching coach Roger McDowell said. "It's just part of the process of hopefully getting back in there and getting things right."
