After a solid second rehab start, the Atlanta Braves have set a goal of June 18 to have Brandon Beachy return to the starting rotation, reports.

In his start at Single-A Rome on Wednesday, Beachy threw five shutout innings and struck out three. He threw 68 pitches while giving up three hits and a walk. That's a clear improvement over his first rehab start with Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday, when he issued three walks and had a wild pitch in four innings.

Fredi Gonzalez said Beachy is scheduled for three more rehab starts, putting him on schedule for a June 18 return, when the Braves play a doubleheader with the New York Mets.

“If there are no setbacks or anything, it would be a perfect fit,” Gonzalez said. “But we know about perfect fits, and that’s why I do all my stuff in pencil.”

Beachy led the National League with a 2.00 ERA last season before going down with Tommy John surgery.
