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. Dec 19 - 12:09 PM

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.

Braves non-tendered RHP Brandon Beachy.

Beachy is working his way back from a second Tommy John surgery and the Braves have elected not to retain him at the rate he'd earn in arbitration. It's possible they could still work out a deal, but they were unable to do so before the deadline and now Beachy can negotiate with anyone. The righty holds a career 3.23 ERA over 46 starts, so he'll get a shot somewhere.
Dec 2 - 6:27 PM

Braves activated RHP Brandon Beachy from the 60-day disabled list.

The 28-year-old hurler missed the entirety of the 2014 regular season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March. He's expected to be ready to return early in 2015.
Oct 31 - 11:29 PM

Braves transferred RHP Brandon Beachy from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Beachy underwent Tommy John surgery last month. The Braves will hope to get him back early on next season.
Mar 30 - 8:48 AM

Brandon Beachy is scheduled to undergo Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery Friday in Los Angeles.

Beachy, like teammate Kris Medlen, will miss the entire 2014 season and possibly part of 2015. It's the second Tommy John elbow procedure for both Braves pitchers. Beachy, 27, owns a fantastic 3.23 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 267 2/3 career major league innings. He will be missed.
Mar 20 - 11:52 AM

Brandon Beachy will have his injured right elbow reevaluated on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

The expectation is that Beachy will require a second Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, which would put him out for the entire 2014 season. The Braves announced Monday that Kris Medlen needs Tommy John surgery -- also the second of his career. It's been a heartbreaking spring for Atlanta. Beachy, 27, owns a fantastic 3.23 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 267 2/3 total major league innings.
Mar 17 - 6:27 PM

Braves general manager Frank Wren said Friday that even with the possibility that Brandon Beachy could need a second Tommy John surgery, the team is not considering adding another starting pitcher.

With the news earlier in the week that Kris Medlen would need his second operation, the team quickly went out and signed Ervin Santana. As it stands, they appear to be content with a rotation featuring Santana, Julio Teheran, Alex Wood, Freddy Garcia and David Hale to begin the season, while Mike Minor and Gavin Floyd work their way back from injuries.
Mar 15 - 8:58 AM

Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that it "sounds like" Brandon Beachy (elbow) could need Tommy John surgery.

Beachy was told after he left a game last Monday with tightness in his elbow and biceps that his ligament was OK, but it appears that might not be the case. He'll visit Dr. James Andrews on Monday before a decision is made. "I was confident when I left (Monday's game)," he said. "That was based on what I was told... Now it looks like it might be something else." It's obviously terrible news for Beachy, who could be headed for his second Tommy John operation in the last 17 months. With Beachy and Kris Medlen both likely going under the knife, the Braves' rotation could be in trouble even after the addition of Ervin Santana.
Mar 14 - 11:20 AM

Brandon Beachy (elbow) will visit Dr. James Andrews on Monday.

Beachy will miss at least one Grapefruit League start and could begin the season on the disabled list due to tightness in his elbow and biceps. The righty said earlier this week and he's been assured his ligament is fine, but he and the Braves will be looking for a clearer diagnosis on Monday.
Mar 14 - 11:14 AM

Brandon Beachy (elbow) will miss his next scheduled Grapefruit League start.

And the absence could extend beyond that. Beachy left his Grapefruit League outing Monday against the Phillies after experiencing soreness in his right elbow and biceps, and he's now undergoing a range of tests. The right-hander is obviously in danger of missing a chunk of the 2014 regular season. This has not been a smooth camp for the Braves' starting rotation.
Mar 11 - 4:10 PM

The Braves believe Brandon Beachy (elbow) is experiencing typical soreness and inflammation that occurs when a pitcher returns from elbow surgery.

Beachy left Monday's start because of tightness in his elbow and biceps. He admitted that he'd dealt with the issue over the past couple weeks and doesn't seem overly concerned. You can't say the same about Atlanta fans, who are watching a rotation under siege.
Mar 11 - 11:11 AM

Brandon Beachy said Monday that he'd been assured by doctors that his "ligament is fine."

Beachy had to leave Monday's start early because of tightness in his elbow and biceps, something he admitted that he's dealt with over the past couple weeks. "I'm not worried at all about it," Beachy said. "I've seen the doctors, and they've done everything. My ligament is fine. I've got some inflammation in there and it got a little too tight in my bicep. It was just unproductive to keep pushing and fighting through it. I'm not scared at all. I didn't come in here feeling 100 percent. This is something I've been dealing with. It had been getting easier the harder I threw and the harder I pushed. Today, it just got a little too tight on me." It doesn't sound like Beachy has a serious injury, and he's yet to be ruled out for the start of the season. However, it wouldn't be surprising if the Braves ultimately decide to give him some extended rest.
Mar 10 - 11:14 PM

Brandon Beachy left Monday's Grapefruit League start against the Phillies after just two innings due to right biceps discomfort.

Beachy said the discomfort is nothing like he felt before his Tommy John surgery or his elbow cleanup last year, but he's still struggling to ramp up his velocity. It's a troubling development, especially given that Kris Medlen left Sunday's game with a forearm strain. One wonders whether the Braves will now get serious about Ervin Santana.
Mar 10 - 2:38 PM

Brandon Beachy left Monday's Grapefruit League start against the Phillies after two scoreless innings.

Beachy was originally scheduled to pitch four innings, but no word yet on the reason for the change. He allowed two hits and two walks while striking out one and didn't appear to be throwing all that hard.
