Brandon Beachy (elbow) is shooting for a mid-June return next season.
Beachy, who is recovering from June Tommy John surgery, has played catch from distances of 30, 45 and 90 feet over the last month and will be cleared to throw from a mound in a couple of months, assuming he has no setbacks. "They're starting to let me turn it loose," Beachy said. "They're restricting the distance and the quantity. But I get to just go play catch. It's nice. I feel somewhat like an athlete again, for a little bit, three times a week."
