News: Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Wednesday that he's not counting on Venters (elbow) to return this season, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: Venters has been throwing bullpen sessions over the last week, but he still has a long way to go as he recovers from his second Tommy John surgery. Given the uncertainty of how effective he might be coming off the severe injury, Venters will likely be ticketed for low-leverage work if he's able to make it back from the disabled list in September.(RotoWire, )

News: Venters (elbow) will resume throwing bullpen sessions during the Braves' upcoming road trip, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: There is still no set timetable for Venters' return, but he could potentially get back from the 60-day DL at some point in late August or September if he's able to progress through the final stage of his rehab without a hitch.(RotoWire, )

News: Venters (elbow) has resumed light throwing, but remains without a timetable for his return, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. Impact: Venters, who underwent his second Tommy John surgery in May of 2013, received a platelet-rich plasma injection a month ago. He remains in the earliest stage of a throwing program, but the fact that he's been able to play light catch on three straight days is encouraging. Venters will continue to see how his elbow responds, while gradually ramping up the intensity of his program. A mid-to-late-August return remains plausible, but he'll have to avoid any setbacks -- something he's been unable to do so far in his recovery.(RotoWire, )
