The SportsXchange

The Atlanta Braves placed five pitchers on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, retroactive to March 21.

Two of the pitchers going on the disabled list were right-handers Brandon Beachy and Kris Medlen, who are both out for the season following Tommy John surgery.

Left-handed pitcher Mike Minor (left shoulder tendinitis), right-handed pitcher Gavin Floyd (recovering from right elbow surgery) and left-handed pitcher Jonny Venters (recovering from left elbow surgery) will continue their rehabilitation programs.

Atlanta now has 35 active players remaining in its major league camp. The Braves begin the 2014 season on Monday, March 31 at Milwaukee.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Minor and Floyd could join the rotation by late April, if they suffer no setbacks. Floyd is scheduled to pitch two innings in a minor league game Friday, and Minor will do the same Saturday.
