Jonny Venters hasn’t pitched in a week due to left elbow soreness.
It’s presumably a recurrence of the elbow issue that put him on the disabled list last month. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez says it’s “nothing major,” though, and Venters could be available as soon as Sunday. “He’s fine,” Gonzalez said. “We?ve kind of laid off him the last three or four days. He threw a bullpen today, and unless something comes up crazy he should be good (Sunday)… Just tender with his elbow a little bit. Nothing major. So we just took a step back.”
