Injured Atlanta Braves reliever Jonny Venters will make rehab appearances with Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday and Saturday before he returns from the disabled list, ajc.com reports.

Venters threw 39 pitches in a bullpen session on Tuesday and will throw another on Wednesday. He was placed on the 15-day DL on July 5 with elbow soreness.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez would like Venters to make two rehab appearances and is eligible to return to play on Friday, but he will probably come back on Tuesday against the Miami Marlins.

Venters is 3-3 with a 4.85 ERA in 32 1/3 innings this season.
