Braves' Mike Foltynewicz: Could begin season on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mike Foltynewicz (illness) could begin the season on the disabled list, MLB.com reports.

A blood clot in his right arm gave Foltynewicz a major scare at the end of last season -- doctors said it was life-threatening -- and forced him to undergo surgery in September to remove the anterior half of his first rib. Fortunately, the 24-year-old was said to be looking good physically and emotionally as he played long toss at Turner Field on Monday, but he will be a couple weeks behind schedule when spring training begins later this month. Down approximately 15 pounds from a season ago, Foltynewicz seems to have the floor of a late-inning reliever, but the rebuilding Atlanta Braves could give him another chance in the rotation once he's back to full strength.

Braves' Mike Foltynewicz has successful surgery, season likely over
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz (blood clots) had successful surgery Monday to remove the anterior half of his first rib.

The rookie hurler was hospitalized with blood clots in his arm over the weekend. The whole situation sounds a lot like thoracic outlet syndrome, a condition that has significantly impacted the careers of a number of MLB pitchers, including Chris Carpenter, Josh Beckett and Jaime Garcia. The Braves indicated that Foltynewicz will be released from the hospital Thursday and will be on blood thinners for at least six weeks. His season is certainly over at this point.

Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz dealing with blood clots in arm
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz (illness) was admitted to the hospital Sunday with blood clots in his right arm, Kevin McAlpin of Sports Radio 680 The Fan reports. 

Foltynewicz was believed to be dealing with an illness of some kind, and now it appears a blood clot may have been the cause. Fortunately, the issue was caught, which should prevent it from causing too much damage, but it seems unlikely he'll pitch again this season.
