The Atlanta Braves have had a interesting preseason so far. Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy will have go under the knife again for Tommy John Surgery. This will be a second Tommy John Surgery for Kris Medlen, Beachy is getting a second opinion. He just wants more information about his arm before having surgery. Just isn’t looking good for the Braves rotation.
They did sign a one year contract with Ervin Santana. Freddy Garcia will be battling for a rotation spot.
When Medlen and Beachy are healthy, they are outstanding pitchers. The earliest they will show up in the upcoming season is about August. Brandon Beachy has a career ERA 3.23, but he has only pitched 46 games out of the last 3 seasons.
Kris Medlen has a career ERA 2.95 and has pitched 152 games, 512.2 innings in 5 seasons.
