Updates from around Major League Baseball on players who are "freshly back" from the disabled list or "newly gone" to the DL.
Atlanta Braves RHP Brandon Beachy: Beachy was on the DL for a total of 39 days after being placed there May 14th with a strained left oblique. Beachy has been a surprise to almost everyone this year after he beat out Mike Minor for the final rotation spot in Atlanta. He has a 3.22 ERA and K/BB ratio over 4 so far this year. His first start back went extremely well: He went six strong innings, giving up one run on four hits and two walks along with a career-high 11 strikeouts. Mike Minor was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett. Minor has not had the results in the majors that he has hoped for so far. His ERA this season is 4.59 and his K/BB ratio is 1.73.
Oakland Athletics 2B Mark Ellis: Ellis was on the DL for a total of 15 days after being placed there June 7th with a strained right hamstring. Ellis had been the starting second baseman all year until his injury. Once he went down, Jemile Weeks was called up to fill the vacant spot. Last night, Ellis's first game back, Weeks started at second base and Ellis came in to pinch hit in the eight inning. After flying out to the center fielder, Ellis went back to the bench and Weeks stayed in the game. Daric Barton was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento, a move that Satchel covered yesterday.
Cincinnati Reds RHP Sam LeCure: LeCure was on the DL for a total of 30 days after being placed there May 23rd with a strained right forearm. Travis Wood was optioned to Triple-A Louisville.
