Found June 13, 2013 on Fox Sports South:
Exempting the friendly onlookers at his past five minor league rehab starts and the spring training visitors who perhaps caught a glimpse of the right-hander down at Walt Disney's Orlando resort, the last time Atlanta Braves fans watched Brandon Beachy throw a baseball was 362 days ago. In an eventual 5-0 loss to the Baltimore Orioles, Beachy made it through 12 batters without allowing a run before visibly wincing and succumbing to the nagging pain in his right elbow, a feeling verified by an MRI that ended his stellar 2012 campaign partially torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), Tommy John surgery, rehab, rehab, decelerated rehab, frustration and more rehab. In the oft-utilized photos from that hurried fourth inning mound visit, one in which manager Fredi Gonzalez took the ball from the 26-year-old for the final time in 2012, there's a distant look in the ace's eyes. He looks down, then out across the diamond, then into the crowd. After mentioning elbow soreness in...

Chipper Jones lists Atlanta home for 3.19 million

In retirement, Chipper Jones has been required to move on. In the case of his impressive mansion in Roswell, Ga., the Braves legend is taking the idiom literally.

Besides the fact that it is the former home of a potential Hall of Fame baseball player, the house comprises eight...

Evan Gattis on Intentional Talk

Your browser does not support iframes. A few people have asked me what I think about his interview, and I don't have the words. He's an odd one, that's for sure. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) I do think it's cute that he gave his girlfriend a little shoutout, and while I'm sure some girlfriends would take offense at the context, surely she understands...

Braves fair poorly in SoCal, head home to face Giants

After going 2-5 against the Dodgers and Padres on their latest road trip, you can’t blame the Braves for wanting to get back home before facing another California team. Especially when their next match-up comes against the reigning World Champion Giants who are third in the National League West with a 33-31 record. The Braves enter the series with a record of 39-27 and a 6-game...

Chipper Jones lists Atlanta mansion

Retired Braves third baseman Chipper Jones earned a cool $168,000,000 in his 19-year playing career. With his days of peppering the gaps in Turner Field over, Jones no longer needs his 23,504 square-foot Roswell, Georgia mansion (as if he ever needed it). The home of a guy named Larry who collected 2,627 career hits sports seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, three half bathrooms...

Bumgarner gem illustrates Braves' lefty paradox

ATLANTA -- When Madison Bumgarner stares down Braves hitters from 60 feet, six inches away, location has meant everything and nothing this season: everything in terms of pitch location; nothing in terms of venue. The 23-year-old rising star toyed with Atlanta's hitters for the second consecutive time Friday, painting corners, throwing strikes and delivering an arsenal of deceptive...

Braves pitcher Tim Hudson uses rosin bag to dry head

Normally, rosin bags are used by baseball pitchers to keep their hands dry and prevent blisters from building up.

Catching Up with the Rome Braves

While the Braves’ farm system doesn’t rank highly among evaluators, there are certain patches of talent scattered throughout the organization. One cluster resides in Rome. 2012 first-round pick Lucas Sims, Jose Peraza, Carlos Franco, and a few other interesting prospects make up a team that is currently 36-29. They headed to Lexington for a three-game series, so I headed to Lexington...
