Feigl was promoted to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday, Jamey Newberg of The Athletic Dallas reports. Feigl has been stellar for the RoughRiders this season, tossing 16.1 scoreless innings across 11 appearances while posting a 0.67 WHIP and 12:4 K:BB. Thanks to his impressive run with Frisco, the 27-year-old finds himself back at Triple-A for the first time since 2015, when he made just one appearance for Triple-A Gwinnett before undergoing Tommy John surgery. If Feigl excels with the Express, he could find himself in the big-league bullpen sometime later this season.
Braves pitcher Brady Feigl recently had Tommy John surgery performed on his elbow, reports MLB.com. Feigl was shut down earlier in April after he began experiencing elbow discomfort while pitching in the minor leagues. Feigl just missed making the Braves' Opening Day roster.
Braves pitcher Brady Fiegl experienced elbow discomfort during a save opportunity with Triple-A Gwinnett Friday and has been shut down for a few days, MLB.com reports. Feigl nearly made the Braves' Opening Day bullpen after giving up just one run in 7 2/3 innings while striking out seven this spring. He will be re-evaluated after a few days of rest.
Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said that LHP Brady Feigl has a good chance to make the roster. Feigl has a 1.35 ERA in seven appearances this spring. He was sent to minor league camp but has been brought back up to make three starts. "We send them down for whatever reason," Gonzalez said, per the Journal-Constitution. "And then the (Braves coaches) are going, 'Wait a second, I remember Feigl, when he was here, he pitched better than the guy who is here. Let's bring him (back)." Feigl has never appeared above Single-A, but Gonzalez said he was "in the mix" to win a job.
