After a visit to Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday, it appears Jonny Venters is not likely to rejoin the Braves' bullpen until the end of May, at the earliest. But there is still some uncertainty about what is causing the discomfort in his left elbow. Andrews injected Venters with a platelet-rich plasma and prescribed four weeks of rest. The Braves are hopeful that the left-handed reliever will be healthy enough to begin a throwing program after resting his arm over the course of the next month.
