From MLB.com beat reporter Mark Bowman …

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez confirmed on Tuesday that Brandon Beachy will not make his next scheduled Grapefruit League start. Beachy exited Monday’s start against the Phillies after grueling through two innings during which he was burdened by tightness around his right elbow and biceps muscle.

Beachy also topped out at just 87 mph with his fastball during Monday’s start, but the Braves are hoping that standard post-surgery inflammation is to blame for all of this. Beachy had Tommy John elbow surgery in 2012 and then needed a cleanup procedure last September.

Kris Medlen suffered a forearm injury on Sunday afternoon and Mike Minor is battling shoulder soreness, so Atlanta’s front office is reeling. The Braves have recently been linked to free agent starter Ervin Santana.

Beachy, 27, owns an outstanding 3.23 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 9.2 K/9 in 46 career major league starts.
