Fried (finger) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday. Fried left his start Monday against the Brewers with a blister, and the issue is evidently serious enough for him to skip his next start. Bryse Wilson was recalled in a corresponding move to start Tuesday's game, but the Braves have yet to announce who will take Fried's spot Saturday against the Nationals.
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.
Fried (10-4) gave up three hits and two walks while striking out five through five scoreless innings to take the win over the Brewers on Monday. In the nine starts coming into this contest, the left-hander had a 3-2 record with a 5.77 ERA but delivered an excellent performance before having to exit the game with a blister on his index finger. Fried has a 4.08 ERA, an 8.9 K/9 and a 2.7 BB/9 through 19 starts this season. It is not clear at this point if Fried will be able to make his next turn in the rotation Saturday against the Nationals.
Fried (9-4) surrendered five runs on 11 hits across five innings to take the loss Saturday against the Marlins. He struck out seven and walked one. Fried was in pretty good shape until the fifth inning, when Miami tallied three runs on four hits. The 25-year-old has a 4.29 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 97:29 K:BB over 98.2 innings and will head into the All-Star break on a sour note.
Fried did not factor into the decision versus the Mets on Sunday, pitching five innings and allowing three runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six. Fried gave up three runs in his first three innings of work but held the Mets scoreless over his final two frames before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the sixth. All of the hits he allowed were singles, and Sunday marked the third straight game in which he did not yield a home run. After a rough four-start stretch in which he gave up 17 earned runs in 20.1 innings, Fried has shown improvement by allowing seven earned runs over his last 17 frames. He'll head home to face the Marlins on Saturday in his next scheduled start.
