Atlanta Braves catcher Christian Bethancourt had surgery to repair the meniscus in his left knee Tuesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Bethancourt missed the majority of the final two weeks in September with a lingering issue in this thumb, but it appears as if the catcher may have dealing with more than just that injury.
Barring any setbacks, Bethancourt should be ready to begin working out sometime in November -- a good sign considering he will likely compete for the starting catcher job in spring training.
Atlanta Braves pitcher Shae Simmons (elbow) may miss the first month of the 2016 season, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.
Simmons underwent Tommy John surgery in February, so the start of spring training and the regular season will come just after a year since going under the knife. The 25-year-old has yet to ramp up baseball activities, and the club will need to see how he feels once he does, so this appears to just be an initial timetable.
Atlanta 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 Los Angeles Dodgers when healthy, and he'll try to establish himself as a late inning option now for the Braves next season.
Atlanta Braves pitcher Mike Minor (shoulder) began a throwing program recently, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Minor went under the knife for shoulder surgery in the middle of May, but was able to begin throwing in September and appears to be progressing well.
He'll continue to throw over the offseason, and while the club is hopeful that the 27-year-old will be able to return early next year, it's unclear at this point if he'll be available to begin the season.
Atlanta Braves catcher Christian Bethancourt (thumb) isn't in the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader with the St. Louis Cardinals , Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.
Bethancourt hasn't played since Thursday while dealing with the left thumb contusion. It's likely that the Braves will just give Ryan Lavarnway and A.J. Pierzynski the starts behind the plate for the doubleheader, allowing Bethancourt to get an early start on his offseason. He should be over the thumb injury in quick fashion.
