Michael Foltynewicz (ribs) just began a long-tossing program last week and does not expect to be fully ready for the start of spring training.
Which means he likely won't be an option for the Braves at the beginning of the 2016 regular season. Foltynewicz had a rib removed from the right side of his rib cage in late September to alleviate a buildup of blood cots. A lengthy period of inactivity followed that procedure, and he told David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he is down 20 pounds (not in a good way). The hard-throwing right-hander posted a rough 5.71 ERA in 15 starts and three relief appearances last season for the Braves and his foreseeable future isn't all that bright. Feb 1 - 12:31 PM
