      Braves' Mike Foltynewicz: Fails to get past third inning against Pirates

      Foltynewicz (1-2) was roughed up by the Pirates on Thursday. He allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits and was pulled after just three innings. Following eight shutout innings in a win at Kansas City last Saturday, Foltynewicz struggled. Thursday was the second time in his four starts this season that he failed to get past the fourth inning. His value will continue to be limited until he can find a more successful way to complement his elite fastball. Foltynewicz's fourseam fastball is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, and that has led to an awful 2.1 HR/9.

      Braves' Mike Foltynewicz: Tosses eight shutout innings versus Royals

      Foltynewicz (1-1) threw seven shutout frames in a 5-0 victory over the Royals on Saturday. He allowed seven hits and no walks while striking out four. The 24-year-old has been really impressive through three starts, allowing just six runs in 18.2 innings. He has a 2.89 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 7.9 K/9 and 8.0 K/BB.

      Braves' Mike Foltynewicz: No-decision despite strong outing Sunday

      Foltynewicz (0-1) tossed seven strong innings Sunday, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out eight, but came away with a no-decision in an 11-inning loss to the Diamondbacks. It was a marked improvement from his first start of the season, and it highlighted the upside the Braves see in Foltynewicz. Unfortunately, the team's offense wasn't able to reward his efforts with a win, something that could be the case far too often this year. His next start will come Saturday, on the road in Kansas City.

      Braves' Mike Foltynewicz: Takes loss in season debut

      Foltynewicz (0-1) had a rough season debut, allowing four runs in 3.2 innings on Monday against the Mets. He allowed eight hits and walked two while striking out four. If there is a silver lining for Foltynewicz, its that all four runs crossed the plate in the first inning. The 24-year-old compiled a 5.64 ERA in the major leagues over the past two seasons, but had a sterling 2.04 ERA in four starts for Triple-A Gwinnett this season. Foltynewicz will face the Diamondbacks in Arizona this Sunday.

      Braves' Mike Foltynewicz: Recalled from Triple-A on Monday

      Foltynewicz was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday and will start Monday's game against the Mets. Foltynewicz was confirmed as Monday's starting pitcher Sunday, but this move officially allows him to enter the Atlanta rotation. The right-hander will have his hands full against a Mets lineup including the scorching-hot Michael Conforto and the dangerous Yoenis Cespedes, making for a tough fantasy matchup.

      Braves' Mike Foltynewicz: Will start Monday

      Foltynewicz has been confirmed as the Braves' starter for Monday's road game against the Mets, Kevin McAlpin of the team's radio network reports. Scratched from his scheduled start Friday with Triple-A Gwinnett, Foltynewicz will indeed get the nod in the series opener in New York. In four starts at the minor league affiliate this season, he's put together a 1-2 record, 1.64 ERA, 1.136 WHIP, and 20:14 K:BB in 22 innings.

      Braves' Mike Foltynewicz: Candidate for a recall Monday

      Folynewicz was scratched from his start at Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday, indicating that he could be called up by the Braves for Monday's game, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports. Bud Norris, who has struggled mightily in his last two outings, will be available out of the bullpen Friday, which suggests that his time as a member of the Braves' rotation is likely over. With that, the news of Foltynewicz being scratched Friday indicates that the Braves want to keep him fresh and rested should they recall him Monday. According to MLB.com's Mark Bowman Foltynewicz would be going on eight days rest if he is ultimately called up to start in place of Norris.

      Braves' Mike Foltynewicz: Struggles in Monday's start

      Foltynewicz allowed four earned runs on four hits and four walks while striking out five over five innings Monday for Triple-A Gwinnett. This was not the kind of outing Foltynewicz needed to keep pace with Aaron Blair in the pecking order to be recalled from Gwinnett. Williams Perez was optioned Wednesday, leaving a spot in the big league rotation open, and Blair and Foltynewicz figure to be the top two options to start Sunday's game against the Mets. Blair would get the edge based on early season performance, but Foltynewicz is on the 40-man roster, which could ultimately give him the edge.
