Atlanta Braves pitcher Brandon Beachy will have ligament-replacement surgery in his right elbow for the second time Friday and is expected to miss the entire season.
The Braves said Thursday that Los Angeles Dodgers team physician Neal ElAttrache will operate in Los Angeles. Beachy's ulnar collateral ligament was reconstructed by James Andrews on June 21, 2012.
Braves pitcher Kris Medlen had a right elbow ligament replaced by Andrews for the second time Tuesday.
Chapman has surgery
Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman underwent surgery to repair a broken bone above his left eye, but has no other serious injuries after being hit in the face by a line drive Wednesday in a spring training game.
