Braves | Gavin Floyd, Jonny Venters eye returns

Thu, 13 Feb 2014 14:33:06 -0800

Atlanta Braves SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) and RP Jonny Venters (elbow), both of whom are recovering from Tommy John surgeries, are upbeat about their chances of returning this season. "So far, so good," said Venters, who has been long tossing from 120 feet for the past couple of weeks. "I couldn't ask to feel any better. Ball's coming out good, my arm feels 'lifey.'" The Braves are being a bit more cautious with Venters because it's his second surgery of the type. Floyd has been throwing from a mound since early January, and his last four bullpens have been for 70-75 pitches. He threw 75 pitches, including changeups, Thursday, Feb. 13, and will mix in curves Sunday, Feb. 16. Floyd isn't putting a timetable on his return.

Braves | Jonny Venters having surgery again

Thu, 16 May 2013 12:27:55 -0700

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.
