Braves SP Kris Medlenwill have an MRI today after leaving his Sunday start with a forearm strain. From the team’s website: "While there is a chance Medlen will learn he needs to undergo Tommy John surgery for the second time in less than four years, the Braves are hoping for the best and hanging on to the optimism that they gathered after Mets physician Dr. Struan Coleman examined the pitcher Sunday afternoon." Let’s hope Medlen is OK and back on the mound soon.
