Jurrjens' bullpen session cut short. Beachy seems best option for Sunday. Does Kawakami fit in the mix?http://tinyurl.com/2wansbn

This is bad news for the Braves, mostly because it means that either Mike Minor or possibly Kenshin Kawakami is going to make another start this season. Jurrjens has been bad lately, but he would have been a better option on Sunday than Kawakami or Minor would be when Minor's spot in the rotation comes up.

Beach pitched well in his Major League debut and I expect him to continue to do so. Hopefully, one of the other pitchers can step up and perform if Jurrjens is forced to be sidelined for the rest of the stretch run.
