Braves pitcher Chris Withrow expected to be healthy by spring training
Braves pitcher Chris Withrow (elbow) is expected to be fully healthy by the start of spring training, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. Withrow missed the entire 2015 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in June of 2014, but he'll now have a full offseason to go through his normal routine. The 26-year-old was a solid option out of the bullpen for the Dodgers when healthy, and he'll try to establish himself as a late inning option now for the Braves next season.

"We feel like he has a chance to pitch real late in games," Braves assistant general manager John Coppolella said, per MLB.com. "He has the stuff where at some point he could close. It's a really good arm." The 2007 first-round pick (20th) has been a pretty strong reliever in his MLB career. He is 3-0 with a 2.73 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 46 career appearances. He is striking out 11.4 batters per nine innings. Although, he also has some control issues, as he has walked 5.0 batters per nine innings. Withrow's fastball ranges from 93-98 mph and he has a plus-plus slider.
