Eric O'Flaherty Expects To Be Available On Sunday After Saturday Bullpen Session

The Atlanta Braves have been battling injuries to its pitching staff all week but may finally have gotten some good news in that Eric O'Flaherty could be available on Sunday.

Like Brandon Beachy, O'Flaherty experienced some elbow soreness after a recent outing and the Braves shut him down for pretty much all of last week. He was originally scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Friday but was still experiencing soreness during the off day on Thursday. The team elected to move the bullpen session to Saturday to give him one more full day of rest.

O'Flaherty threw about 25 pitches in the session and reported no problems and could be available if needed on Sunday.
