Sports Briefs: Braves put Beachy on 15-day disabled list
Question of the Day
ATLANTA — The Atlanta Braves placed Brandon Beachy on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a sore right elbow, creating an opening in the rotation that will be filled by Jair Jurrjens.
The team recalled Todd Redmond from Triple-A Gwinnett to pitch out of the bullpen. Beachy, who leads the major leagues with his 2.00 ERA, will have a MRI on Monday. Beachy left Saturday night's game against Baltimore in the fourth inning. He had seven days' rest before making the start.
Beachy said Sunday he has had bone spurs in the elbow. He said he didn't feel a pop in the elbow, so he hopes the soreness was caused by the spurs instead of a ligament issue which could lead to season-ending surgery.

• New York Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher was held out of the lineup at Washington a day after leaving the game with a bruised quad. He is listed as day to day. Swisher is hitting .262 with 10 homers and a team-leading 40 RBI.
Haas sweeps Federer to capture Weber Open
HALLE, Germany — Wild card Tommy Haas defeated five-time champion Roger Federer 7-6 (7-5), 6-4 to win the Gerry Weber Open for the second time.
The 87th-ranked Haas, the oldest player in the singles draw at 34, recovered from losing his serve in the first game by winning the opening set in a tiebreaker and then getting the decisive break in the ninth game of the second set.
Haas beat Federer in two of their first three meetings early in their careers but hadn't defeated him in more than a decade, losing their last nine matchups.
Haas first won this grass-court tournament in 2008, when he beat Novak Djokovic in the final.
