Brandon Beachy Injury: Braves Pitcher Has Partially Torn Ligament In Elbow

Many feared the worst when Brandon Beachy left Saturday's game in the fourth inning with an elbow injury. Those fears were realized on Monday when an MRI exam revealed that Beachy had a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow which usually would require ligament replacement surgery (Tommy John) and 12-14 months of rehab.

The next course of action is for Beachy to get some second opinions on the diagnosis and will visit Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday. In the short term Atlanta will recall Jair Jurrjens from Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday to to take Beachy's place in the rotation against the Red Sox.

Braves Vs. Yankees: Minor Struggles As Atlanta Drops Opener 6-2

Mike Minor gave up four earned runs over 5 2/3 innings as the Braves dropped the series-opener to the Yankees, falling 6-2 in New York on Monday night.

Michael Bourn lead the Braves at the plate, going 2-for-4 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored, while catcher David Ross went 2-for-3.

The Braves opened the scoring in the first on an RBI-groundout from Martin Prado to score Bourn. In the fifth, Bourn singled home another run to double Atlanta's lead. But the Yankees scored three in the bottom frame on a ground-rule double from Russell Martin and a single from Derek Jeter. The Yankees tacked on a run in each of the next three innings, including solo home runs from Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano.
