A MRI conducted by Dr. Doug Murray Wednesday determined Myrtle Beach RHP Arodys Vizcaino has a partial tear of the ligament in his right elbow. Vizcaino will be sent to Florida and be placed on a rehab throwing program to strengthen the elbow. The Braves hope he'll return in six weeks.
Vizcaino, who was acquired from the Yankees in the Javier Vazquez trade last winter, was 9-3 in 15 starts between Rome and Myrtle Beach this season. He had a 2.71 ERA, with 76 hits allowed in 83 innings, 12 walks, and 77 strikeouts.
