With his scheduled rehab start for Gwinnett rained out, Braves right-hander Brandon Beachy had to settle for throwing a three-inning simulated game in the Gwinnett batting cage Monday.

Beachy, whose return is taking on new urgency with every injury to the bullpen, will make his next scuduled start on Friday. The Braves hope to give him three or four starts before actvating him. Latest reports indicate that Beachy will remain a starter, with julio Teheran or Kris Medlen moving into the bullpen.

---------

Jose Costanza is hitting .400 for May since returning from his hamstring injury, and hitting safely in all six games since being activated. ... Joey Terdoslavich is once again leading his league (in this case, International) in doubles, hitting two in the first game of Gwinnett's doubleheader to give him 18 for the season. But he's not just producing gap power, as his eighth homer led the G-Braves to a 5-2 win in the nightcap.
