It was his second reconstructive elbow surgery in two years, and the Dodgers will be conservative in bringing him through his rehabilitation with an eye toward activation around the All-Star break.

The Braves declined to tender Beachy (elbow) a contract, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Beachy would have been in line for only a very slight increase in salary (from 1.45 million) via arbitration after missing all of 2014 following Tommy John surgery, but the Braves ultimately decided those funds would be better allocated elsewhere. The right-hander's reconstructive elbow surgery was his second such procedure in less than two years, but the Braves do reportedly have some interest in bringing Beachy back at a reduced cost.

With the news earlier in the week that Kris Medlen would need his second operation, the team quickly went out and signed Ervin Santana.

Mark Bowman of reports that it "sounds like" Brandon Beachy (elbow) could need Tommy John surgery.

Beachy was told after he left a game last Monday with tightness in his elbow and biceps that his ligament was OK, but it appears that might not be the case. "I was confident when I left (Monday's game)," he said. "That was based on what I was told... Now it looks like it might be something else." It's obviously terrible news for Beachy, who could be headed for his second Tommy John operation in the last 17 months. With Beachy and Kris Medlen both likely going under the knife, the Braves' rotation could be in trouble even after the addition of Ervin Santana.
