The Atlanta Braves were optimistic regarding Jonny Venters' recovery from general elbow soreness, but it appears the left-hander could be back to square one. Venters suffered a setback yesterday, experiencing discomfort while throwing off the mound for the first time since receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com. Venters told reporters that his elbow "wasn't as comfortable" as he was hoping it would be, but he added he'll hold off on disappointment until he's reevaluated today. "It just wasn't as comfortable as I wish it would have been," Venters said. "We'll see what tomorrow brings and we'll go from there. It was just a different stress than you put on it when you throw off flat ground," Venters said. "It might be one of those things where it's got to get used to throwing off a mound again. It didn't feel great. But we'll see how it feels tomorrow." After receiving his recent injection, Venters was able to throw off flat ground without experiencing any discomfort last week. He was hoping for the same when throwing from a mound yesterday, but the session had to be cut short after 10 pitches were thrown. Recovery will be put on hold until Venter's elbow is reevaluated. The issue became apparent when Venters began experiencing soreness in his elbow during spring training. MRI exams haven't shown significant damage, and the left-hander rested his arm for four weeks before resuming a throwing program. It remains to be seen if he'll require additional time off after yesterday's soreness. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
