Description: Atlanta starter Kris Medlen (right elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery on Tuesday, according to Mark Bowman of mlb.com.
Insight: Medlen had the surgery back in 2010 and injured his elbow again on March 9. Dr. James Andrews confirmed the initial diagnosis on Monday.

Insight: We hope Dr. Andrews is offering the Braves a group discount as he'll be joined there by Brandon Beachy. Medlen is expected to need Tommy John surgery, Beachy is expected to miss just a start or two at this point.

Insight: We assumed that was the case when the Braves forked over $14 million for Ervin Santana on Wednesday morning. If it happens, this will be his second Tommy John surgery in the last four years. Medlen has thrown 512 2/3 innings at the big league level with his most coming in 2013 (197 innings).
 
3/11/2014 2:33:00 PM
Description: Kris Medlen's MRI apparently showed some ligament damage in his elbow, according to Dave O'Brien of Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Insight: That's not good. He's headed to Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion. Medlen (15-12, 3.11 ERA in 2013) could be headed for his second Tommy John surgery.

3/9/2014 3:33:00 PM
Description: The Braves are calling Kris Medlen's injury a forearm strain, according to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Medlen left Sunday's spring training start with the injury. He'll still need an MRI to determine the extent of his injury.
Insight: Medlen grabbed his elbow after throwing his next-to-last pitch, then hopped off the mound toward the dugout immediately after the next one. He's not out of the woods yet, as forearm soreness can sometimes be indicative of a problem with the elbow. Medlen already has one Tommy John surgery under his belt, which came back in August 2010.
 
3/9/2014 2:48:00 PM
Description: Atlanta starter Kris Medlen suffered an apparent elbow injury during Sunday's spring training start against the Mets.

Hot9/21/2013 9:35:00 PM
Description: Atlanta starter Kris Medlen failed to win his fifth consecutive start Saturday against the Cubs, but he did provide fantasy owners with 7 1/3 innings and six strikeouts while allowing one earned run on six hits.
Insight: Medlen has had another late-season surge. Since dropping to 6-10 with a 3.78 ERA on July 28, he has gone 8-2 with a 2.31 ERA. That includes a 4-0 record and a 1.01 ERA over his last five starts. Saturday was actually his first no decision since May 24.
 
Hot9/14/2013 10:28:00 PM
Description: Atlanta righthander Kris Medlen won his fourth straight Saturday against the Padres.
Insight: Medlen is quickly becoming the ace of this staff. During the win streak, he's carried a 0.98 ERA with a 26 to four strikeout to walk ratio. He's lowered his ERA from 3.74 to 3.32 over that stretch.
 
Hot9/3/2013 10:12:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Kris Medlen has gone 6-2 over his last eight appearances to improve from 6-10 to 12-12.
Insight: Medlen nearly lost his spot in the starting rotation earlier this season but injuries prevented that from happening. He struck out nine, walked none and allowed one earned run on seven hits over seven innings Tuesday against the Mets and owns a 2.76 ERA and a 43/6 K/BB over his last 49 innings.
 
Hot8/29/2013 10:15:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Kris Medlen held the Indians to six hits in seven scoreless frames Thursday at Turner Field.
Insight: Medlen was about to lose his spot in the starting rotation a few weeks ago but injuries to Tim Hudson and Brandon Beachy prevented that from happening. Since then he's been on a roll, allowing just five runs in his last 23 innings (1.96 ERA).
 
8/18/2013 9:22:00 AM
Description: Atlanta righthander Kris Medlen made his first relief appearance of the season Saturday in a 15-inning loss to Washington.
Insight: Medlen allowed four hits and one run in his three innings of work. After throwing 47 pitches, he'll have his next start pushed back to Saturday. Originally, Medlen had been scheduled to throw Tuesday against the Mets.
 
8/13/2013 9:52:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Kris Medlen ran his record to 10-10 Tuesday with his fourth straight victory.
Insight: Medlen allowed just one earned run on five hits and struck out five with one walk over seven innings Tuesday against the Phillies. During his four-game winning streak, Medlen has a 3.46 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and a 23/4 K/BB in 26 innings.
 
Cold7/23/2013 10:19:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Kris Medlen looked like a fantasy ace last season, but he is just 6-10 with a 3.78 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP after losing Tuesday's game to the Mets.
Insight: Medlen has allowed 55 hits in just 40 2/3 innings and posted a 5.53 ERA over his last seven starts. He's in jeopardy of being demoted to the bullpen when Brandon Beachy returns from his Tommy John rehab because he is underperforming and already has bullpen experience.
 
6/11/2013 2:00:00 PM
Description: Righthander Kris Medlen has not been producing like he did last season and the Braves may be considering sending him to the bullpen when Brandon Beachy (on rehab) is ready to return to the rotation.
Insight: Medlen has a respectable 2.87 ERA, but nothing compared to last season when he went 10-1 with a 1.57 ERA and 0.913 WHIP. Medlen's fantasy value would be almost non-existent in the Braves bullpen.
 
6/3/2013 10:34:00 PM
Description: Righthander Kris Medlen limited the Pirates to just one run on seven hits Monday in in 7-2 Atlanta victory.
Insight: The one run Medlen allowed was unearned. Monday's win was Medlen's first since April 9th against the Marlins. Despite his 2-6 record, Medlen still has one of the lowest ERAs on the Braves' pitching staff (3.14 in 71 2/3 innings).
 
5/29/2013 8:33:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Kris Medlen left Wednesday's outing with a left calf contusion after being hit with a comebacker, according to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Insight: Medlen brought a 1-5 record into Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays despite carrying a 3.16 ERA. He'll probably be OK for his next start.
 
5/18/2013 10:05:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Kris Medlen limited the Dodgers to two hits and one unearned run Saturday in a no decision against the Dodgers.
Insight: Medlen (1-5) hasn't been as sharp as he was last year, when he went 10-1 and had a 1.57 ERA, a 0.91 WHIP and a 120/23 K/BB in 138 innings. He has a 3.02 ERA in 56 2/3 innings, but he has allowed 53 hits, walked 22 and struck out 38.
