Braves Pitcher Kris Medlen Out Indefinitely With Partial Elbow Tear

Atlanta Braves pitcher Kris Medlen pitched well in Wednesday’s game against the New York Mets, but had to lead in the fifth inning in what was deemed a possible UCL injury.

The Braves confirmed that early diagnosis on Twitter Thursday.

Medlen has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his rt elbow. Plan of action will be determined over the next couple of weeks.
