The Atlanta Braves have placed left-handed pitcher Eric O’Flaherty on the 15-day disabled list. MRI’s show that he tore his ulnar collateral ligament, which generally leads to Tommy John surgery. He is scheduling an appointment with Dr. James Andrews next week and probably done for the year.
This isn’t great news for the Braves, as Flaherty has been pitching well this season. With 18 innings of work, he held a 2.50 ERA and 0.94 WHIP.
