Jonny Venters will have third Tommy John procedure
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Jonny Venters will undergo Tommy John surgery for the third time the team announced Friday, as he has been diagnosed with yet another torn ligament in his elbow.

Venters has not pitched in the majors since 2012, but the 29-year-old will attempt yet another comeback. He is unlikely to be ready to pitch in the majors again until the start of the 2016 season, at the earliest, at this point.
