The Atlanta Braves will activate SP Brandon Beachy (elbow) from the disabled list Monday, July 29, and manager Fredi Gonzalez said Beachy will likely be limited to 100 pitches in his start against the Colorado Rockies. "I feel good now and I've felt good ever since that point I was shut down," Beachy said.
Fantasy Tip: Beachy could be a nice addition to fantasy baseball pitching staffs for the second half of the season. Beachy has plenty of upside in his arm, but you may want to temper your expectations for dominance since he's coming back from Tommy John surgery. His outings might be erratic to start, and he probably won't reach peak form until next season. Regardless, he shouldn't be on any waiver wires anymore.
