The Braves have promoted Joe Beimel to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Joe Beimel had Tommy John surgery this month.

The left-hander was released by the Rangers at the end of spring training and failed to latch on with another team. Beimel is hoping to continue his playing career once he heals from the reconstructive elbow procedure.

Rangers released LHP Joe Beimel.

Biemel allowed three runs over six innings (4.50 ERA) this spring while striking out five and walking two. The veteran southpaw entered camp with a chance at a left-handed specialist job, but the Rangers now appear likely to go with 22-year-old Robbie Ross.

Jose Beimel (elbow) tossed a one-inning simulated game Monday morning in Rangers camp.

Beimel threw 15 pitches -- 11 of which were strikes -- in the short outing. He's been slowed by tightness in his pitching elbow but has plenty of time to get his work in before the start of the 2012 regular season. The 34-year-old left-hander is trying to win a spot in the Texas 'pen.

Joe Beimel (elbow) is schedule to throw in an intrasquad game Monday.

Joe Beimel (elbow) is expected to face live hitters Saturday.

Joe Beimel (elbow) is aiming to resume throwing off flat ground Wednesday in Rangers camp.

Beimel has been shut down for the past couple of days due to stiffness in his left elbow. The 34-year-old non-roster invitee is trying to win a spot in Texas' bullpen.
Tue, Feb 28, 2012 11:54:00 AM

Joe Beimel will be shut down for at least 2-3 days due to stiffness in his left elbow.

It's concerning because Beimel missed a couple months of action last year while dealing with inflammation in his pitching elbow. At this point, though, it doesn't appear that an MRI has been scheduled. The non-roster invitee is trying to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster with a strong spring, but he's not off to a good start.
