Braves | Jonny Venters to throw Thursday

Atlanta Braves RP Jonny Venters (elbow) will throw off a mound Thursday, May 9, for the first time since leaving a spring training game with pain in his elbow March 26. Venters had a platelet-rich plasma injection and was told to rest for four weeks.

Fantasy Tip: This is encouraging news for Venters and the team, but he probably still has plenty of ways to go before he'll be a realistic option at the back end of the bullpen again. If he's healthy, Venters has some value in deep NL-only leagues because of his skills against left-handed batters.
