Braves | Jonny Venters shut down

Atlanta Braves RP Jonny Venters (elbow) has been shut down for four weeks after Dr. James Andrews injected him with platelet-rich plasma Tuesday, April 2.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't guarantee that Venters won't eventually have to go the surgical route eventually. If the injections work, though, he'll have to resume his throwing program and build up strength in his arm four weeks from now. Don't expect Venters to be ready to return to action until probably sometime in late May or early June.
