Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez expects Jonny Venters (elbow) to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible.
Venters is dealing with an impingement in his left elbow, but he has no structural damage and will not require an MRI. “When I talked to our medical people, they said it wasn?t serious,” said Gonzalez. “But I think the combination of the inflammation, the impingement of the elbow, and the way things are going ? I think this would be a good time to go back to square 1, work on some things that he needs to work on, and then come back out.”
