Fantastic. I only expect him to get better, and he is already the best defensive player in baseball.

Adding Adrelton...That is a solid core of players to lead in the locker room and dugout, still hate BMac left, but that $ would have been for diminishing returns

I don't see a more official thread for the preseason, but it sounds like Medlen had to leave a game today due to a "Strained Right Forearm"

Hopefully it's not too bad. I'm a Nats fan, but I don't want to see anything bad happen to your ace so early in the season

Medlen is our ace now??? Not sure I would go that far I'd argue Minor or Tehran are our ace

No, we don't have a true ace pitcher.

If pressed, I would say that right now Minor is our best pitcher. I think Teheran has the most potential though. I could see him developing into a borderline ace.

Sounds like it's bad news. Expecting to worse news possible but hoping for the best. Normally "Right Forearm Strain" with "Will be evaluated tomorrow" means that he's headed for TJS again.

If Medlen is not hurt, he is our best IMO. Most people do not realize this:

"Medlen's ERA since the 2012 All-Star break is second only to Clayton Kershaw among pitchers with at least 250 innings pitched in that period and he's won three of the past eight NL Pitcher of the Month awards while no other pitcher in baseball has won more than one over the same span."

I agree about Teheran and I think the Braves got a deal signing him

Here is a tidbit from mlbtraderumors.com:

"By Steve Adams [March 10 at 12:08pm CST]
The Braves have acquired right-hander Zach Stewart from the White Sox in exchange for cash considerations, according to the Chicago Tribune's Paul Sullivan (on Twitter)."

I don't think this is a good sign about what is expected from the MRI results on Meds today, hope I'm wrong. Apparently Stewart has logged 106 innings at the Major League level with an ERA of near 7.......

And it gets worse, Beachy leaves todays game with Bicep issues here's another tidbit:

2:21pm: O'Brien hears from a person connected to the Royals that the Braves may now be making a run at Santana (Twitter link). In addition to Medlen's injury, Brandon Beachy left today's Spring Training start with biceps tightness.

I don't have my hopes too high on Medlen right now based on what is being said. Hopefully Beachy's is nothing, but Mark Bowman's Twitter had me worried today before the injury.

Quote:
One scout said Beachy's fastball topped out at 87 today. Another had him at 88. Either way, this adds to the concern.

Yeah, something is not right, I hate what is shaping up to be a pattern for Brandon he has so much potential I just wonder if his right arm will ever be able to hold up.

Two starting pitchers injured in two days of spring training. This might be a LONG year for the Braves.

yikes. I liked when the bad news out of ST was that the offense wasn't clicking and the power numbers were off.

Braves can't afford to go the entire season with Freddy Garcia as their number 4 starter. Have to strongly consider Ervin Santana. A rotation of Minor, Santana, Beachy, Teheran, and Wood/Garcia/Hale/Floyd is a lot better than Teheran, Garcia, Wood, Hale, and...

Because right now with Beachy's arm a mess, I don't expect too much from him ever again, honestly, Minor going to be sidelined for a couple weeks to start the season, and Medlen appearing to be gone for the year, our rotation is a mess.

I agree, I am just scared to death of who Wren goes after if we don't land Santana given our financial limitations. Perhaps he brings Paul Byrd down out of the broadcast booth to eat a few innings, on a serious note I am hoping Wood can be a major contributor.
