Report: Beachy to be named Braves 5th starter

Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com reports that, while the Braves haven’t announced it yet, SP Brandon Beachy is expected to be named the team’s fifth starter soon. His main competition, Mike Minor, will start the year in Triple-A.

Beachy’s certainly earned a spot in the rotation with his work this spring, though I remain a bit skeptical. Expect to see Minor back up no later than June.

    Basically, a crap shoot between who stays. Kinda glad Minor is going down to AAA. I’d like to see him get some seasoning.

    It won’t matter who is out there if we can’t field the ball.
