Wisler was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday. Wisler got knocked around during his last stint in the big leagues, posting seven earned runs across two appearances, which eventually led to a demotion. The right-hander will now return to the Braves, but without a clear rotation spot open, Wisler seems destined for long relief.
Wisler was optioned back to Triple-A Gwinnett after Wednesday's game. Wisler was sent down after a couple of brutal back-to-back outings, allowing seven runs through two innings over his last two games. Wisler will head back to Gwinnett for the time being, though he should remain one of the Braves' top options should they need a spot start or some length out of the bullpen. The Braves are expected to announce a corresponding roster move sometime Thursday.
Wisler was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday. Wisler was in competition for the team's final starting rotation spot during spring training, but was ultimately beat out by Mike Foltynewicz. Through three starts with Triple-A Gwinnett this season, the 24-year-old owns a 3.50 ERA and an 11:4 K:BB ratio over 18 innings. He'll provide some length out of the Braves' bullpen.
Wisler was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien reports. It seemed pretty clear that Wisler would lose out on his bid to make the rotation out of camp, as Mike Foltynewicz has been the better pitcher over the past year. Wisler will likely be the first pitcher summoned from Triple-A when the Braves have need of a replacement starter. He still has the potential to be a No. 3 or No. 4 starter long term, and makes for a nice buy-low option in deeper leagues.
Wisler allowed just one hit and struck out two over four shutout innings in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros. Facing a Houston split-squad lineup that included George Springer, Brian McCann and Yulieski Gurriel, Wisler matched Dallas Keuchel goose egg for goose egg before exiting the game. With Mike Foltynewicz pitching well this spring, Wisler has basically no chance of breaking camp as the Braves' fifth starter, but if he continues shining over the next couple of weeks, he could win a long-relief spot in the bullpen.
