Teheran Unquestioned Most Important Braves Player

Last week I wrote an article about who will be the most important Braves player in 2014.  Julio Teheran was my choice due to the Braves needing a true number one starter with big-time stuff and Teheran having that type ability.

Medlen Injury News Like Death Watch

Medlen was a rock in the Braves rotation last season and […]

Beachy Still Question Mark?

Brandon Beachy is being counted on heavily by the Braves this season to start and win games.  You read articles in the media about what Beachy will do in 2014 and it is  like a given he will have a very successful season. Until Beachy is able to throw free and easy, I am concerned […]

Has Wood Made Beachy’s 2013 Return Irrelevant?

Beachy Pitches Braves to 14th Straight Win

Brandon Beachy MLB Ready After Wednesday Rehab Start

Atlanta Braves starter Brandon Beachy pitched six strong innings for the Gwinnett Braves against the Durham Bulls Wednesday night.
