Braves P Medlen leaves start with strained forearm

Posted: Updated:

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) - Braves starter Kris Medlen left in the fourth inning of Sunday's game against the New York Mets with a strained right forearm.

Medlen threw a pitch to Matt Clark, and then grabbed his right elbow and turned his back to home plate.

The right-hander who was slated to start opening day for Atlanta removed himself from the game. He was examined by the Mets' team doctor and will be re-evaluated on Monday.

Medlen was 15-12 last year with a 3.11 ERA in 197 innings. The 28-year-old had Tommy John surgery in 2010.
