An Uggla hot streak would seal the regular season deal
The Atlanta Braves have opened up an eight game lead in the National League East race, but the season is far from over. So who are the three players that are key the rest of the season and into the playoffs?
Even before Tim Hudson‘s injury, I considered Brandon Beachy to be a key this season. Beachy was one of the top pitchers in the National League last season and if he can regain that form, he would be huge for this Braves team, particularly in the playoffs. If he doesn’t, I’m not sure the Braves have enough pitching to do significant damage in the playoffs.
Beachy has a cocky edge to him, an athletic arrogance that infuses his teammates with confidence. He has the make-up to pitch his best in the biggest games and the Braves young pitching staff would be bolstered tremendously if he can regain his top form.
Dan Uggla has the capability to carry the Atlanta Braves for weeks at a time. He also has the ability to keep Brave...

ATLANTA -- Before Brandon Beachy took the mound Monday night, Braves general manager Frank Wren sat atop the navy-blue padded backing of the home dugout's bench discussing deadline deals, offensive improvement and team health. Eventually talk shifted to Beachy, who made his first major league start since undergoing Tommy John surgery last June.
Wren, looking rather energetic...
The Atlanta Braves were hoping to have both Brandon Beachy and Tim Hudson in their starting rotation this season. Unfortunately for Atlanta it wasn't meant to be, as Hudson went down with a season-ending ankle injury just before Beachy wrapped up his rehab assignment. Now, Beachy is taking Hudson's place in the Braves' rotation, as the right-hander is slated to make...

A Brief Review of Brandon Beachy’s Season Debut
Undrafted out of Indiana Wesleyan University in 2008 following his junior year there, but subsequently signed that...
The Braves were facing a very interesting situation two weeks ago. Paul Maholm was struggling, along with Kris Medlen, and the Braves had Brandon Beachy inching closer and closer to being ready to return from Tommy John surgery. Additionally, top prospect Alex Wood has dominated in every role the Braves had put him in and was probably one of the team’s best five starters on the...
Monday will mark Braves starter Brandon Beachy‘s first turn in the rotation for the Atlanta Braves since the 26 year old right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery last June. This is a long-term fantasy positive as Beachy figures to be a top-of-rotation contributor for the Bravos for years to come but there is rest of season fantasy value to be had as well...

After Uggla led off with a walk, Simmons hit the ball too deep into the gap in left-center field for Carlos Gonzalez and Dexter Fowler to keep it from reaching...
Braves starter Brandon Beachy fully recovered from Tommy John surgery on his right elbow will make his first start of the 2013 season on Monday against the Rockies reports David O’Brien. He is effectively taking Tim Hudson‘s spot in the rotation. Hudson was lost for the season on Wednesday after suffering a gruesome injury to his leg and ankle.
Brandon Beachy will make his first major league start in 13 months when he pitches on Monday against Colorado.
Beachy, 26, last pitched on June 16, 2012. The Braves right hander has been working his way back from Tommy John surgery.
Expectations should be tempered as pitchers returning from Tommy John surgery typically have struggled in their initial returns to the mound.
It had been more than 13 months since Brandon Beachy pitched in the major leagues. And much longer since the Braves right-hander had given up seven runs in a game. As in never in his big-league career.
While Beachy’s first game back since Tommy John elbow surgery was hardly a rousing success Monday night his teammates picked him up twice erasing Colorado leads — including an...
Over the last few weeks, there were questions surrounding
how the Atlanta Braves would make room for Brandon Beachy in their starting
rotation. On the same night as Beachy’s final rehab start, Tim Hudson made that
space by suffering a season-ending ankle injury. As a result, Beachy is
expected to take over Hudson’s spot in Atlanta’s rotation, making his first
