Brandon Beachy Feels Good After Tuesday Rehab Start

Brandon Beachy started his rebooted minor league rehab stint with Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday, and the Atlanta Braves pitcher felt just fine afterward in his Tommy John comeback.

Beachy gave up two runs on three hits and a walk with one strikeout in three innings against the Norfolk Tides. He gave up both runs in the first inning on the walk and two doubles.

"I felt a little too good out of the pen," said Beachy on gwinnettbraves.com. "First batter, you get a little too amped up. You can't really simulate that in the pen. After the first batter, I gave up a couple of doubles, but both of those were on pitches I was happy with. They were in decent spots and they did pretty much what I wanted them to do, but they were hit hard."

The main thing to take away from Beachy's start is that 29 of his 45 pitches were strikes, so his control is largely there, even after being shut down for three weeks.

"I’m pretty happy. I’m feeling good and healthy," Beachy told Dave O'Brien.

Beachy will likely make two or three more rehab starts before rejoining the Braves.
