Braves' Max Fried: Too many baserunners leads to bloated ERA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried, 23, has a 5.49 ERA and 59:27 K:BB through 57.1 innings for Double-A Mississippi.

The strikeouts are nice, but Fried has allowed entirely too many baserunners. He has also been bitten by the home run ball, having served up seven homers in 11 starts. His inability to keep the ball down as much at the higher levels is coming back to haunt him. Fried still has plenty of upside, but he's been too inconsistent to remain an elite pitching prospect.

Braves' Max Fried: Solid in Double-A start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (back) allowed one run on two hits while striking out four and walking two through six innings Saturday.

Fried posted a strong second appearance after exiting his first minor-league start just 1.2 innings in with back tightness. This is encouraging, seeing as it's only his second start above Low-A, but it's still too small of a sample size to truly draw from. As one of the Braves' top pitching prospects, it will be interesting to monitor how he continues to handle his assignment at Double-A.

Braves' Max Fried: Exits with back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried made a precautionary exit Thursday with lower-back tightness, MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports.

Fried, one of the Braves' top pitching prospects, gave up four runs (two earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out two in 1.2 innings in his first start for Double-A Mississippi. This was his first start above Low-A, so it really shouldn't come as a surprise that he struggled. The Braves were encouraged by the tests performed after he exited, so it sounds like Fried might not be sidelined for long.

Braves' Max Fried: Optioned to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried was optioned to Double-A Mississippi on Thursday.

There was some thought that the 23-year-old southpaw could skip High-A altogether, as he is already on the 40-man roster and was dominant in the second half at Low-A last season, and that will indeed be the case. Of the pitchers in last year's historically stacked Low-A Rome rotation, Fried should be the first to reach the majors if he can handle this aggressive assignment. While he may seem a tad old at 23, he missed almost two full seasons due to Tommy John surgery, so he's closer to 21 in baseball years. He has the potential to be No. 3 starter.

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.
