Brandon Beachy went three innings in rehab start Tuesday


On Tuesday Brandon Beachy made his first rehab start since being sidelines with elbow inflammation last month.

Beachy, 25, pitched three innings for Triple-A Gwinnett allowing two runs. The Braves pitcher allowed three hits and a walk and stuck out one. Overall he threw 29 of 45 pitches for strikes.

The Braves will likely ask Beachy to make two or more additional starts before they made a decision about his return to the big league club.

Last season he made 13 starts and had a 2.00 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP before having to undergo Tommy John surgery.
