Braves | Jonny Venters having surgery again

Atlanta Braves RP Jonny Venters (elbow) will undergo his second Tommy John surgery of his career and will miss the rest of the year. He underwent the elbow reconstruction to fix the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow Thursday, May 16.

Fantasy Tip: Venters was used heavily out of the Braves' 'pen the last few seasons, and it has caught up to him. Craig Kimbrel is the unquestioned closer on this team, but Eric O'Flaherty and Jordan Walden will have bigger roles as setup men as a result.
