Beachy (elbow) felt fine after throwing two innings in a simulated game Saturday, Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times reports.

Beachy faced hitters Saturday for the first time this season, and it appears he was able to do so without issue. Beachy may throw a few more side sessions before he is ready for game action, but with him advancing to this point in his recovery, a rehab assignment may not be far off.

Beachy's (elbow) bullpen session Tuesday did not go well according to the pitcher, the LA Daily News reports.

Beachy (elbow) threw off a mound Tuesday and worked on his mechanics during a lengthy session, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

Beachy, who is returning from the second Tommy John surgery of his career, is targeting a return around the All-Star break. He appears to be progressing as expected thus far, and if healthy by midseason, will represent an excellent fallback option if the historically fragile Brandon McCarthy and Brandon McCarthy fail to hold up at the back end of the rotation.

Beachy agreed to a one-year contract with the Dodgers on Saturday that includes an option for 2016, Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles.com reports.The Braves declined to tender Beachy a contract in December, making him a free agent, after the right-hander missed the entire 2014 season following Tommy John surgery. It was his second reconstructive elbow surgery in two years, and the Dodgers will be conservative in bringing him through his rehabilitation with an eye toward activation around the All-Star break. Beachy could be an option to start once healthy, but if the rotation remains intact, he could be ticketed for the bullpen.

The Braves declined to tender Beachy (elbow) a contract, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Beachy would have been in line for only a very slight increase in salary (from 1.45 million) via arbitration after missing all of 2014 following Tommy John surgery, but the Braves ultimately decided those funds would be better allocated elsewhere. The right-hander's reconstructive elbow surgery was his second such procedure in less than two years, but the Braves do reportedly have some interest in bringing Beachy back at a reduced cost.
