Medlen may have pitched his last game in a Braves uni

Looks like Meds has ligament damage, which means Tommy John surgery is all but assured. He’s seeking a second opinion but I’d place the odds of him pitching this year at less than one percent. Sadly, we may never see Med Dog, one of our favorites, in a Braves uniform again. He’s due to make $5.8 million this year and will be a free agent after 2015.

Considering the price tag, Medlen is a likely candidate to be non-tendered after this season. He could return, but at a reduced salary. That rarely happens.

Regardless, it’s a bad day. Best of luck to Kris.

    Fuck.

  2. We’ll have to hope that the addition of Santana will help out; good to see the team move quickly to shore up this problem though. Hopefully Beachy’s injury isn’t as serious.

    And Beachy, too. $#%!*
