Brandon Beachy (elbow) will throw to hitters this weekend for the first time since he underwent his second Tommy John surgery.

Live batting practice is a good step for Beachy, who has been working on altering his delivery in order to reduce stress on his elbow. Beachy's on track for a rehab assignment in June and a return around the All-Star Break.

Brandon Beachy (elbow) has worked on altering his delivery as he makes his way back from a second Tommy John surgery.

Beachy's motion is now more of a straight line toward home plate rather than across his body, which he hopes will put less stress on his elbow. "I had Tommy John once," Beachy said. "I followed everything you’re supposed to do and it happened again. It might have been bad luck. But it didn’t make sense to me to do it all over again the same way just hoping it was bad luck." Beachy is on track to throw live batting practice in a couple weeks and begin a rehab assignment sometime in June. That puts him in line for a return around the All-Star break.

Brandon Beachy has advanced to bullpen sessions in his ongoing recovery from Tommy John surgery.

"Everything is good," Beachy told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday. "I'm really happy." If everything continues to go smoothly, the 28-year-old righty could be an option for the Dodgers' starting rotation by early June. He signed a one-year, $2.75 million free agent contract with LA in late February. The deal includes a vesting option for 2016.
Apr 20 - 11:07 AM

Dodgers placed RHP Brandon Beachy on the 60-day disabled list with an elbow injury.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Dustin McGowan, who was signed to a one-year contract this weekend. Beachy is working his way back from a second Tommy John surgery and probably won't be an option for the Dodgers' rotation until early June.
Feb 23 - 9:54 AM

Dodgers signed RHP Brandon Beachy to a one-year, $2.75 million contract.

The deal also includes a club option for 2016. The 28-year-old hurler is currently battling back from a second Tommy John surgery and isn't expected to be ready until around May. He's a terrific depth signing for the Dodgers as he offers immense upside if he is able to regain his pre-surgery form.
Feb 21 - 1:48 PM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Dodgers have agreed to a one-year contract with free agent right-hander Brandon Beachy.

The deal includes a club option for 2016. Beachy is expected to begin the season on the disabled list as he continues to recover from his second Tommy John surgery. It's a nice low-risk, high-reward signing for the Dodgers as Beachy owns a career 3.23 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 275/86 K/BB ratio over 267 2/3 innings.
Feb 21 - 1:36 PM

Brandon Beachy isn't planning to sign with a team until sometime in early- to mid-February.

Beachy was said to be close to a deal with an undisclosed club late last week, but those talks apparently fell apart. Here's the statement from Beachy's agent, Rob Martin: "Brandon has decided not to sign a contract at this time. With each day his arm is getting stronger and he’s feeling even more confident about his progress. Thus, he is going to continue with his throwing program and make a decision closer to spring training." The 28-year-old right-hander is recovering from his second Tommy John elbow surgery.
Jan 29 - 1:20 PM

Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities hears Brandon Beachy has chosen a new team and is finalizing some contractual details with the club.

Wolfson is led to believe that team isn't the Twins. Beachy won't be ready for the start of the season as he continues his recovery from a second Tommy John surgery, but he could be back and contributing for a club sometime in May. The Braves have also been counted out of the running for the 28-year-old, but a number of other clubs had interest. We should know his new organization soon.
Jan 24 - 4:13 PM

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Braves are no longer in the running to sign free agent right-hander Brandon Beachy.

The Braves have a number of options for the fifth spot in their starting rotation, so the report doesn't come as a big surprise. Beachy, 28, is working his way back from his second Tommy John surgery and likely won't be ready until sometime in May. He has reportedly thrown for seven teams in recent weeks and is said to be close to making a decision on where to sign.
Jan 15 - 5:49 PM

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports the Rangers are no longer involved in the running for Brandon Beachy.

The Rangers were one of the teams previously believed to have interest in the right-hander, but Grant hears the club has backed out as Beachy nears a decision. He's certainly not a safe investment, as the 28-year-old is recovering from his second Tommy John surgery. Even with the Rangers out, Beachy is receiving interest from at least six clubs and could find a new home by the end of the week.
Jan 7 - 11:02 PM

David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution hears the Braves have stayed in contact with free agent Brandon Beachy.

O'Brien adds that the club remains interested in the right-hander. Beachy is expected to sign somewhere by the end of the week, and he's thrown for seven teams over the past two weeks. Beachy, 28, is still working his way back from a second Tommy John surgery on his right elbow and will likely be ready to contribute around May.
Jan 7 - 6:57 PM

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish heard from a source that free agent right-hander Brandon Beachy is aiming to sign with a team by the end of this week.

Cotillo says Beachy has thrown for seven different teams over the past 10 days and is now asking for final offers from six of those clubs. The 28-year-old starter is recovering from the second Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery of his career and probably won't be ready for major league action until sometime in May 2015. But he owns a shiny 3.23 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 9.2 K/9 in 267 2/3 big league frames.
Jan 6 - 5:39 PM

Brandon Beachy's agent, Robert Martin, told Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News that the Rangers are among the teams showing interest in his client.

"Several teams are still reviewing his medicals," Martin said via e-mail. "I do not think a decision is imminent, but he does have multiple offers." Beachy, who is working his way back from a second Tommy John surgery, was non-tendered by the Braves earlier this month. He probably won't contribute much in the first half next season, but Beachy holds a career 3.23 ERA over 46 starts and is worth a gamble on an incentive-laden deal.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that free agent right-hander Brandon Beachy already "has multiple offers in hand."

Beachy was non-tendered by the Braves on Tuesday, but teams have moved quickly to express their interest. In fact, Cotillo hears that 10 teams are in the mix and that Beachy could sign during next week's Winter Meetings. Despite coming off his second Tommy John surgery, he's expected to receive a major league contract.
