LOS ANGELES (AP) -John Smoltz will return to Atlanta on Thursday and meet with Braves doctors about his right shoulder discomfort.
The 40-year-old pitcher will likely skip his final start before the All-Star break, which begins Monday. Smoltz will meet with doctors Friday to discuss what type of test is appropriate, the team said.
Smoltz (9-5, 3.07 ERA) was selected to his eighth NL All-Star team Sunday. The game is Tuesday in San Francisco.
