Braves shut Beachy down for season

ATLANTA — The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Wednesday that the Braves have shut pitcher Brandon Beachy down for the remainder of the season.

Beachy underwent Tommy John surgery in 2012 and returned to the Braves mid-season, where he went 2-1 with a 4.50 ERA before experiencing discomfort in his surgically-repaired elbow in late August. A subsequent MRI showed no structural damage to the elbow, and Beachy was scheduled to resume throwing activities early last week, but was unable to do so due to recurring inflammation in the elbow, manager Fredi Gonzalez told the Journal-Constitution.

Beachy had hoped to return to the squad and pitch in some capacity, whether starting our out of the bullpen, for the National League East-champion Braves as they entered the playoffs.
