Beachy throws off mound Monday

Brandon Beachy threw from the mound Monday for the first time since straining his left oblique against the Phillies on May 13. He threw 20 pitches, all fastballs, at 70-75 percent.

“Felt good,” Beachy said. “It loosened up. By the end of the 20 pitches I was going back to caring about where the ball is going instead of trying to feel each throw. So that was refreshing to let myself slip back into that and not feel anything.”

Beachy might not be back for a few weeks yet, as he has to build up his arm strength and make a minor league rehab start or two. The Braves don’t need a fifth starter after Mike Minor goes Tuesday until June 11 in Houston.

Easy on Los Bravos SDF, they’re class fans, and they’re also used to their boys coming up small…

Good to have him back. Now, if we could only get him and the rest of the staff some runs. What a team! How about it Uggla, Heyward, Chipper? And for the rest, McCann excepted, show some heart. This team looks like its just going through the motions.

Uggla .178! Why are we not putting him on the bench? Who cares how much money he makes, the object is to win the game. Its a sunk cost, so whether he plays or doesn’t we still owe him the money. May as well win while doing it.

We may as well face the fact that with Uggla at .178 and Heyward seemingly more injury prone than either Bob Horner or Daryl Strawberry, we are going to need another big bat in that lineup. Right now if the opponent can score three runs then we’re beat. We should finish around .500 or at the most five or six games over without another bat in this lineup. I keep hoping Uggla will snap out of it but it just isn’t happening! C’mon Frank Wren it is time to make one of those John Schuerholtz type deals like in ‘93 when we added Fred McGriff.
