Wisler was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday, MLB.com reports.
Called up from Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday to make his first start of the season for the Braves in the second game of a twin bill with the Mets, Wisler was able to effectively eat some innings for the big club. He conceded four runs on six hits and three walks in the outing, but covered six frames and struck out seven batters along the way. Unfortunately for Wisler, fellow Triple-A call-up Sean Newcomb outperformed him while starting the first game of the doubleheader, and will have the opportunity to stick around as the club's fifth starter while Bartolo Colon (oblique) remains on the disabled list. Expect Wisler to reclaim a spot in the rotation at Gwinnett, with whom he's posted a 5.01 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 41.1 innings this season.
Wisler (0-1) gave up four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out seven over six innings in a loss to the Mets in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.
It wasn't a disastrous outing by any means -- after all, Wisler held the Mets scoreless through four -- but he was still easily outdueled by Steven Matz on the other side. Added as the 26th man for the twin bill, Wisler figures to head right back down to Triple-A Gwinnett. He may pitch out of the bullpen upon his eventual return, as he did during his prior stints with the big club this season.
Wisler is set to pitch the second contest of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The right-hander will be allowed to join Atlanta's roster as the 26th man on the team due to the doubleheader, and is slated to make his first start of the year. Wisler has compiled nine innings of work at the major-league level this season, allowing seven earned runs and a 1.33 WHIP. He has only managed three strikeouts during his time and has faced the Mets on three of his six appearances in 2017, getting roughed up for all seven of his runs given up on nine hits in four innings of work. In his previous start for Triple-A Indianapolis, Wisler allowed two earned runs in five innings during a loss.
Wisler was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.
He has pretty clearly fallen out of favor with the Braves, as he was used exclusively as a reliever in his stay with the big-league club, and failed to deliver, posting a 7.00 ERA and just three strikeouts in nine innings. Wisler was once seen as a fairly safe No. 3 or No. 4 starter, but his future is now uncertain. He has a 5.20 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 25:9 K:BB in 36.1 innings over six starts at Triple-A this season.
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.
