Brandon Beachy is right on schedule as he attempts to return from Tommy John surgery. The 25-year-old right hander is expected to begin throwing off the mound early in spring training reports David Oâ€™Brien.

If healthy Beachy will be quite an in-season addition to the Braves rotation. Last season Beachy had a 2.00 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP in 81 innings of work.
Currently the Braves rotation stacks up as Kris Medlen, Tim Hudson, Paul Maholm, Mike Minor, and either Julio Teheran or Sean Gilmartin as the fifth starter.
Former Braves starter Jair Jurrjens signed a one-year deal with the Baltimore Orioles worth $1.5 million.
