Top Max Fried News

  • Braves' Max Fried: Placed on injured list

    Fried was placed on the 7-day concussion injured list Thursday, retroactive to Aug. 8.

    Fried was scheduled to start Friday's series opener against Miami, but he banged his head against the ground while attempting to make a throw to the plate during his last outing Saturday and will ultimately be forced to miss time. He'll be eligible to return as early as Monday, but it's not yet clear if he's expected to clear the concussion protocols by that point. Jake Odorizzi will take his place as Friday's starter.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Takes loss in nightcap

    Fried (10-4) allowed four runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out five in six innings, taking the loss in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Mets.

    Fried gave up three runs in the third inning and another in the sixth. Two of Atlanta's three errors in this contest led to runs, allowing Fried to log his fourth straight quality start. The southpaw has maintained a 2.60 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 127:25 K:BB in 138.1 innings across 22 outings this year. He'll look to avoid going a season-worst four starts without a win in his next turn, tentatively projected to be a road start in Miami next weekend.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Excellent in no-decision

    Fried struck out five in seven scoreless innings, allowing four hits and two walks in a 1-0 win Sunday against Arizona. He did not factor into the decision.

    Fried did not allow a hit until Jake McCarthy singled with one out in the fifth inning. He was never really in trouble as only one baserunner made it into scoring position. The lefty has given up more than three runs in a start only twice all season and has a 2.58 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 122:24 K:BB in 132.1 innings while allowing just six homers. His next start will likely be next weekend in New York against the Mets.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Fans eight in quality start

    Fried didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Phillies, giving up three runs on nine hits over six innings. He struck out eight without walking a batter.

    The southpaw tossed 69 of 103 pitches for strikes en route to his sixth quality start in his last seven outings and his 15th of the season. However, Fried got denied his 11th win when A.J. Minter served up a game-winning homer to Bryson Stott in the bottom of the eighth inning. Fried will take a 2.73 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 117:22 K:BB through 125.1 innings into his next start.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Earns 10th win

    Fried (10-3) earned the win during Saturday's 6-3 victory over Washington, allowing three runs on seven hits with four strikeouts in seven innings.

    Atlanta provided Fried an early four-run lead and the lefty rolled to an easy win, firing 60 of 94 pitches for strikes in the process. The 28-year-old encountered one rough inning in the fourth when he surrendered two runs on two hits but managed to permit only one run in his other six frames. Though he still delivered a quality start, the three runs surrendered snapped a five-game streak of allowing two runs or fewer. Fried concludes the first half with a 2.64 ERA and 1.06 WHIP with 109 strikeouts in 119.1 innings across 19 starts.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Wobbly control in Monday's loss

    Fried (9-3) took the loss Monday as Atlanta fell 4-1 to the Mets, giving up two runs on five hits and five walks over five innings. He struck out five.

    The southpaw didn't have much margin for error with Max Scherzer in top form for New York, but Fried didn't help his cause by tossing only 55 of 99 pitches for strikes before exiting. It's only the second time in his last eight starts Fried has issued multiple free passes, and even with Monday's bumpy outing, he sports a 1.93 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 48:11 K:BB through 51.1 innings over that stretch.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Listed as Monday's starter

    Fried (upper leg) is listed as Atlanta's probable starter for Monday's game versus the Mets, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The left-hander exited after six scoreless innings due to tightness in his right glute during his previous start Wednesday, but it appears he's had no further issues and is set to make his next turn through the rotation. Fried has been electric in his past four outings with a 1.35 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 25:4 K:BB across 26.2 innings.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Lifted after six scoreless frames

    Fried (9-2), who picked up the win Wednesday against the Cardinals, was removed after six scoreless innings as a precautionary measure due to tightness in his right glute, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. The left-hander allowed five hits with four strikeouts and one walk.

    The 28-year-old exited with only 82 pitches, so he likely would have lasted another inning or two without the injury. It's not believed to be a serious issue, and manager Brian Snitker expects Fried to make his next turn through the rotation, which tentatively lines up for Monday versus the Mets. He has 1.35 ERA and 25:4 K:BB in 26.2 innings across his past four outings.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Cruises to eighth win

    Fried (8-2) picked up the win Friday, allowing one run on five hits over seven innings in a 9-1 victory over the Reds. He struck out four without walking a batter.

    Atlanta jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, and that was all the support Fried would need. The southpaw fired 63 of 94 pitches for strikes en route to his third straight quality start and 12th in his last 14 trips to the mound, and Fried will take a sharp 2.66 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 96:16 K:BB through 101.1 innings into his next outing.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Fans nine in no-decision

    Fried pitched 6.2 innings against the Dodgers on Saturday, allowing two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out nine. He did not factor in the decision.

    Fried held the Dodgers scoreless heading into the seventh inning, but a two-out single by Cody Bellinger in that frame resulted in Los Angeles' first run. Will Smith relieved Fried and allowed an inherited runner to score, and the Dodgers tied the contest in the following inning, taking both starters out of the decision. Though he wasn't able to notch a win, Fried put forth another strong effort, setting a season high with nine strikeouts while racking up 20 swings-and-misses. He posted his 11th quality start of the campaign, which trails only Joe Musgrove for most in the National League.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Wins arbitration case

    Fried will make $6.85 million in 2022 after winning his arbitration case against Atlanta, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    While Fried and Atlanta were unable to reach an agreement prior to a hearing, the southpaw will make $250,000 more than the $6.6 million that the team offered. The 28-year-old has posted a 1.93 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in 32.2 innings over his last five starts and projects to make his next start on the road against the Dodgers on Saturday.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Punches out eight in no-decision

    Fried did not factor in the decision against San Francisco on Monday despite allowing only one run on five hits and two walks while striking out eight over seven innings.

    Fried was nearly untouchable in the outing, holding the Giants scoreless through seven innings. However, he allowed three straight batters to reach base in the eighth and was tagged with one earned run in the frame. Fried has yielded one or zero runs in four of his past five contests and has gone 3-0 over that stretch. He's 7-2 on the campaign with a 2.77 ERA, 1.05 WHIIP and 83:15 K:BB across 87.2 innings overall.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Six strikeouts in win

    Fried (7-2) earned the victory Tuesday in Washington, striking out six in 5.2 innings while allowing four runs on six hits and a walk.

    Fried got off to a great starting, fanning the first five batters he faced. In the third, he loaded the bases with no outs, leading to a three-run inning. The lefty fell short of completing six innings for just the third time this season. His next start will likely be early next week against San Francisco.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Strikes out eight in win

    Fried (6-2) earned the win Thursday, allowing one run on eight hits and zero walks over six innings against Pittsburgh. He struck out eight.

    Fried allowed singles to three of the first four Pirates hitters, but he escaped the inning without giving up a run by striking out the side. The left-hander's only blemish on the night came on a Jack Suwinski solo home run in the fourth, but Fried got his revenge in the sixth by striking Suwinski out to end his night. Thursday's performance marked Fried's third consecutive outing giving up one or fewer runs, while his eight strikeouts tied his season high. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday's contest in Washington.

    Fried shut down the Rockies at Coors but Atlanta wasn't able to score until the 10th leaving Fried with a no-decision despite posting a season-high game score of 81. The 28-year-old lefty has now gone at least six innings in each of his last 10 starts, tallying a 2.17 ERA during that span. Fried will carry a 2.74 ERA and 1.01 WHIP into his next start over the weekend against Pittsburgh.
