David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that Braves reliever Jonny Venters suffered a minor setback during his first live bullpen session on Wednesday. The lefty felt soreness in his elbow due to the increased activity and the Braves cut the session short as a result.
Venters, 29, hasn’t pitched since the end of the 2012 season and underwent Tommy John surgery on his left elbow on May 16 last year. The Braves were hoping to get him back at some point in June. In three seasons with the Braves leading up to the injury, Venters posted a 2.23 ERA with a 258/110 K/BB ratio in 229 2/3 innings.
