In more bad news for the Braves rotation, Brandon Beachy will join Kris Medlen in visiting Dr. James Andrews on Monday for an evaluation.

Beachy left his last start on March 10 after only two innings, instead of the four he was scheduled for. He'd been experiencing bicep soreness, something that surely the Braves had hoped would just be a normal spring setback. The visit to Dr. Andrews is a sign things could be a lot more serious for Beachy. Mark Bowman says signs point to a second Tommy John for Beachy.
It sounds like Beachy might also have to undergo a second TJ surgery.— Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) March 14, 2014
