PLAYERS: Brandon Beachy
TEAMS: Atlanta Braves
Brandon Beachy will resume his minor league rehab on Tuesday. Beachy will pitch for Triple-A Gwinnett after throwing a 50-pitch bullpen session on Saturday. The Braves were forced to shut Beachy down a few weeks ago due to inflammation in his surgically repaired elbow. Beachy had a 2.00 ERA and 68 strikeouts in 81 innings over 13 starts last season before season-ending surgery. The Braves will likely ask Beachy to make two or three starts before making a decision about his future. Currently there is no obvious spot in the teams rotation.

Braves players rip Yasiel Puig's All-Star merit

Major League Baseball announced the rosters for the upcoming All-Star Game over the weekend and only one Atlanta Braves player earned a selection. However, Braves first basemen Freddie Freeman still has a chance to become the second Atlanta player to be named an All-Star through the "Final Vote" process. But he will have to beat out emerging Los Angeles Dodgers superstar...

Braves Outlast Marlins In Fourteen

It took the Atlanta Braves 14 innings to get the bats going on Monday night against the Miami Marlins.  They needed five extra innings, but the Braves were able to claim a 7-1 victory in game one of the series.

Upton brothers lead Braves in win

After the final out, Justin Upton made a beeline for his brother in the Atlanta Braves outfield, and they shared a happy hand slap. Both were key contributors in a victory, which hasn't happened often this year. Justin Upton homered, doubled twice and scored three runs, while B.J. had two hits, drove in a run and scored to help beat the Miami Marlins 6-4 Tuesday night. '...

Chopcast: Braves confronted with 'snub' debate

ATLANTA -- Before delving into the most heated topic concerning the Braves organization, it's important to mention that Freddie Freeman, the team's best hitter in 2013, is leading the Final Vote (as of a few hours ago), which could significant undercut the entire "snub" debate. If Freeman were to beat out the likes of Dodgers' standouts Yasiel Puig and Adrian...

Braves' Evan Gattis: No BP on field until Thursday, likely return after break

Although Atlanta Braves catcher/outfielder Evan Gattis has resumed light baseball activities, he is still unable to take live batting practice on the field, and it appears more likely that he will not return to the Braves until after the All-Star break. MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports that Gattis has not experienced any pain, discomfort, or other setback, but the Braves want...

Braves and Atlanta vs. ESPN: The Battle over All-Star Fan Vote

We've tried really hard not to wade into this, but it touches on a few of our favorite topics. (1) The Atlanta Braves (2) ESPN If you are a baseball fan, you know the all-star game is next week. And the last component to the two teams roster is a staged popularity contest known as the "Fan" vote. And what this story is about is how polarizing it's become...

Screengrab Snafu: BJ Upton drops a deuce into left field

Photo galleries for games are located way out in the boondocks of ESPN.com, which is maybe why not too many people caught this little snafu from the Marlins-Braves game.  (Additionally, it was Justin Upton and not B.J., the trouble of having the Upton brothers on the same roster.)  I'm not sure whether that's ESPN's caption or the AP's caption, but either way it...

Three Cuts: Sloppy Braves lose game, series to Phillies

Here are three things we gleaned from the Braves' 7-3 loss to the Phillies on Sunday. 1. The Braves started slow and tapered off in this series-defining defeat There's an old adage in baseball that teams are predisposed to win 50 games and lose 50 games in a given season, regardless of how well or poorly they play. But after that, each franchise is on their own for the...

Braves 6, Marlins 4

Justin Upton homered, doubled twice and scored three runs to help the Atlanta Braves earn their 27th comeback victory when they beat the Miami Marlins 6-4 Tuesday night. The Braves overcame deficits of 3-1 and 4-3. They lead the NL in come-from-behind wins. Pitchers for the two teams combined to retire 30 consecutive batters Monday, when Atlanta won 7-1 in 14 innings. The second...

Phillies Take Series From Slumping Braves

It was a tough afternoon for Kris Medlen on the mound as the Atlanta Braves fell 7-3, to the Philadelphia Phillies.  The Phillies took 2 of 3 in the weekend series and gave the Braves their 4th loss in their last 6 games. The Phillies jumped on Kris Medlen and the Braves early on Sunday afternoon.  A Dominique Brown triple in the first inning brought around Chase Utley to score...

Braves 7, Marlins 1(14)

Justin Upton broke a tie by driving in two runs when he doubled in a six-run 14th inning for Atlanta's first hit since the sixth, and the Braves beat the Miami Marlins 7-1 Monday night.
