Beachy has tear in elbow

Associated Press

NEW YORK – Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez was detailing his team’s latest loss, running down the list of what went wrong.

Then, very calmly, he added: “I have an announcement to make.”

It was not good news for the Braves, either – right-hander Brandon Beachy, put on the disabled list Sunday, has a partial tear in his elbow.

Gonzalez revealed the results of an MRI exam after Monday night’s 6-2 defeat by the New York Yankees. He did not elaborate on the severity of the injury, and said Beachy would see the team doctor before visiting noted orthopedist Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion.

Beachy, 25, is leading the majors with a 2.00 ERA.
