Braves' Beachy goes on disabled list

Posted: Updated:

The Braves have another injured pitcher. Righthander Brandon Beachy has gone on the disabled list with right elbow inflammation.

Beachy will visit Dr. James Andrews Monday.Andrews performed Tommy John surgery on Beachy last year. The pitcher returned to the Braves starting rotation last month after a 13-month recovery.

Beachy had compiled a 2-1 record and a 4.50 earned run average with the Braves since his return.  He expressed concern Tuesday when he noticed a drop in the velocity of his fastball.

The Braves also announced Friday they had acquired pitcher Freddy Garcia from the Baltimore Orioles. He will provide depth to a team that had already lost Tim Hudson for the year with a fractured ankle. Garcia will also give the Braves an opportunity to rest other pitchers down the stretch.
