Braves' Max Fried: Could begin season at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fried, who is participating in his first major league spring training, could begin the season at Double-A Mississippi, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

The 23-year-old spent all of last season at Low-A after missing 2015 due to Tommy John surgery, but he dominated down the stretch, posting a 2.80 ERA and 72:19 K:BB in 54.2 innings over his final 11 regular-season starts before striking out 24 batters in 14.2 innings during the playoffs. If Fried does make the jump to Double-A, either to begin the season or during the first half, the left-hander could maker his MLB debut late in 2017.

Braves' Max Fried: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried was added to Atlanta's 40-man roster on Friday.

It is Rule 5 draft protection day, and this was a slam dunk add for the Braves, as Fried is one of the best pitching prospects in a system loaded with high-upside/high-pedigree arms. A lefty with the potential for a couple plus pitches and a third average offering, Fried should start 2017 at High-A as part of one of the best rotations in the minor leagues. He posted a 3.26 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 52:11 K:BB in his final 38.2 innings of 2016.

Braves' Max Fried: Activated from 7-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (hand) was activated from the 7-day DL and will start Sunday for Low-A Rome.

Fried was placed on the 7-day DL in late July with a blister on his throwing hand, but after a few weeks off, it looks like he's fully healed. The left-hander, who missed all of last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, has a 3.50 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 84:39 K:BB ratio across 82.1 innings this season.

Braves' Max Fried: Returning off second 7-day DL stay of July
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fried is back on the 7-day DL with Low-A Rome due to a recurring blister issue, 929 The Game's Grant McAuley reports.

The 22-year-old tossed two shutout innings on July 15, but was pulled from the game after blisters on his throwing hand resurfaced -- an issue that landed him on the DL back on July 4. It's been a frustrating month for the left-hander, who has performed exceedingly well in 16 starts for Low-A Rome, posting a 3.50 ERA along with a killer 9.2 K/9 and 0.7 HR/9 through 82.1 innings. While Fried is considered a core piece in the Braves' rebuild, the club's ninth-ranked prospect needs to prove he's capable of staying healthy, as he has already lost almost two years due to Tommy John surgery back in 2014.

Braves' Max Fried: Rusty at Low-A following Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried, 22, has a 4.25 ERA and 57:34 K:BB through 59.1 innings for Low-A Rome.

Not surprisingly, Fried has struggled with his command after missing all of the 2015 campaign following Tommy John surgery. Still, he is nearly averaging a strikeout per inning at this level, and getting more ground ball outs than fly outs. Fried was known to induce a bevy of ground balls prior to the injury.
