Atlanta Braves Brandon Beachy To Visit Dr. Andrews

Atlanta Braves starter Brandon Beachy is scheduled to visit orthopedist Dr. James Andrews to get a second opinion on a partial tear in his right elbow. As we have said before, visiting Dr. Andrews isn’t always a good thing. Beachy will see Dr. Andrews on Wednesday. Team orthopedist Dr. Xavier Duralde confirmed the tear on Tuesday. there is no word on how long Beachy will be out. However, elbow tears and your pitching elbow generally require Tommy John surgery, and recovery can sideline pitchers for a year or more. The 25-year-old Beachy was put on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, a day after leaving a start early. He is tied for the major league lead with a 2.00 ERA and is 5-5 in 13 starts.

UPDATE – June 21, 2012 Brandon Beachy is going to have reconstructive surgery on his right elbow Thursday, and will miss the rest of the season.
