Beachy slated for Tuesday Triple-A start

MIAMI -- Brandon Beachy will make the first of what will likely be three Minor League rehab starts on Tuesday night. If he gets through these outings without suffering the setback he experienced last month, the Braves will have to decide how to make a spot for him in their starting rotation.

But before making any plans, the Braves will wait to see what happens over the next couple of weeks, as Beachy goes through what he hopes are the final stages of his long recovery from Tommy John elbow reconstruction surgery.

"All of that will take care of itself," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said.

In other words, the Braves are in the same position they were in last month when Beachy made what was supposed to be his final rehab start on June 13, and was diagnosed with right elbow inflammation after an MRI exam the next day.

When Beachy starts for Triple-A Gwinnett in Tuesday night's game against Norfolk, he will be opposing former Braves pitcher Jair Jurrjens, who was sent back to the Minors after a short stint with Baltimore this year. Beachy will attempt to complete three innings, and he will be limited to 50-60 pitches.
