Fried was removed from Monday's 4-2 win over the Brewers after five innings due to a blister on his left index finger, Kelsey Wingert of Fox Sports South reports.

Fried was able to secure the victory after throwing five scoreless frames, but skipper Brian Snitker revealed after the contest that the southpaw's early removal was the result of the minor finger issue rather than a strategic decision. Snitker didn't comment on whether Fried will be able to make his next start, though the lefty's availability should become more clear in the coming days.
