Brandon Beachy is seven months removed from Tommy John elbow surgery and the Braves right-hander told Mark Bowman of MLB.com that everything has gone well with his rehab so far.
“I’m just checking days off the calendar,” Beachy said. “I feel good. I haven’t really come across any serious hurdles. I’m just easing along.”
Beachy was leading the National League with a 2.00 ERA when he blew out his elbow in mid-June. Bowman reports that he’s currently throwing on flat ground from 120 feet and likely won’t get back on a mound for another month, but “there’s some hope Beachy will return in late June.”
