Braves' Beachy to have surgery, done for the year

NEW YORK (AP) - Atlanta Braves pitcher Brandon Beachy is going to have reconstructive surgery on his right elbow Thursday, and will miss the rest of the season.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez made the announcement after the Braves beat the New York Yankees on Wednesday, hours after Beachy received a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews.

The 25-year-old Beachy was put on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, a day after leaving a start early. He is tied for the major league lead with a 2.00 ERA and is 5-5 in 13 starts.

Andrews has performed many of the ligament replacement operations known as Tommy John surgery. Recovery time for the injury normally takes 12-18 months.

Jair Jurrjens will be recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Friday in Boston.

The first inning came and went innocuously, but the second showed the first offensive outburst of the night as the Biscuits staked themselves to a three-run lead in the top of the inning.
