 Biographical Information
On September 7, 2011, Brandon Beachy set an Atlanta Braves team record for a rookie by recording his 140th strikeout of the year in a 3-2 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. The previous record had been set by Jair Jurrjens, the pitcher he replaced in the Braves' rotation when he made his major league debut in 2010. Irv Young holds the franchise record with 156 for the Boston Beaneaters in 1905.
On May 17, 2012, Beachy recorded his first major league shutout in a 7-0 win over the Miami Marlins. That game lowereed his National League-leading ERA to 1.33, while his record was at 5-1. However, exactly a month later, on June 17th, he was placed on the disabled list after being diagnosed with a partial ligament tear in his elbow. He was still tied for the major league lead with a 2.00 ERA at the time, but he underwent Tommy John surgery on June 21st, putting him out of action for a full year. After the season, he indicated he was eyeing a return to the Braves in June of 2013.
