ATLANTA BRAVES DISABLE PITCHER BRANDON BEACHY
Tue, 19 Jun 2012 03:22 AM EDT

The Atlanta Braves placed Brandon Beachy on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday with a sore right elbow, creating an opening in the rotation that’ll be filled by Jair Jurrjens. NFL scores

The team recalled Todd Redmond from Triple-A Gwinnett to pitch out of the bullpen.

Beachy, who leads the major leagues with his 2.00 ERA, will have an MRI. Beachy left Saturday night’s game against Baltimore Orioles in the 4th inning. He had 7 days’ rest before proceeding to make the start.

Beachy claimed Sunday he’s had bone spurs in the elbow. He revealed he didn’t feel a pop in the elbow, so he hopes the soreness was caused by the spurs instead of a ligament issue which can lead to season-ending surgery.

“I’m hoping it is bone spurs still,” Beachy claimed. “It’s time to find out for sure, so that is what we are going to do.”

Gonzalez expounded “I don’t expect the worst” from Beachy’s MRI.

“I expect in 15 days he’ll be ready to go,” Gonzalez recounted. “There are plenty of pitchers who have pitched with (bone spurs), which will settle down a little bit”

Jurrjens will be recalled from Gwinnett to make Beachy’s next prepared start on Friday at Boston.

Jurrjens, who was named to the 2011 All-Star team, had been one of the Braves’ top starting pitchers before he strived with right knee problems in the second half last season. He said that he was healthy this year but he was 0-2 with a 9.37 ERA when he was optioned to Gwinnett on April 24. He is 3-4 with a 5.27 ERA in 9 starts with Gwinnett.

Other alternatives for the Braves included Kris Medlen, who was recalled on Friday, and top prospect Julio Teheran, who was recalled for one start on June 10.

“Medlen may go into the rotation sometime this summer, but we feel like we’re better with him in the bullpen now,” Gonzalez recounted. Gonzalez claimed Teheran had “a tiny stiffness in his back” after Saturday’s start with Gwinnett.

Gonzalez said Jurrjens deserved the opportunity to return to Atlanta.

“He’s made some progress. We’re going to give him a shot,” Gonzalez declared. “We feel like he’s done it before. He has been an All-Star. … He’s done all we’ve asked down there.”

Gonzalez related Jurrjens, who was 13-6 with a 2.96 ERA in 2011, will make at least 2 or 3 starts but could earn a longer stay.

The 27-year-old Redmond was 6-4 with a 3.20 in 13 starts for Gwinnett. This is his 1st promotion to the major leagues.

Meanwhile, 1st baseman Freddie Freeman is missing his 4th straight start but said his sore left hand has improved “a lot.” He has been unable to correctly grip the bat due to a swollen knuckle on his left index finger.

Martin Prado is making his 2nd start of the season at 1st base.

Third baseman Chipper Jones, who was held out with swelling in his left knee on Saturday night, is starting. Left-hander Eric O’Flaherty, who’s had a sore elbow, is again available in the bullpen.
