  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Optioned after poor start

    Muller was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Muller allowed six earned runs on five hits and three walks while striking out just one across 2.1 innings Thursday against the Reds. He was also charged with the loss, dropping his record to 2-4. Though Muller had pitched effectively in the rotation since early July, he is seemingly the odd-man out with Huascar Ynoa (hand) set to return Tuesday. Muller's demotion also suggests that Touki Toussaint will remain a starter until Ian Anderson (shoulder) is activated.

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Lacks control in no-decision

    Muller allowed three runs on two hits, two walks and a hit batter while striking out three in 4.2 innings versus Washington on Friday. He did not factor in the decision.

    In addition to the hit batter, Muller also threw three wild pitches in a game where he didn't have the sharpest control. He was spared the loss when Atlanta rallied in the bottom of the fifth inning. The southpaw has given up more than two runs in only two of his eight big-league appearances (seven starts) this year. He owns a 2.88 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 36:17 K:BB across 34.1 innings. Muller lines up for his next start versus Cincinnati next week.

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Strikes out seven in solid outing

    Muller allowed one run on four hits and two walks with seven strikeouts through five innings, taking a no-decision in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Brewers.

    Muller dueled it out with two-time All-Star Brandon Woodruff for five innings Saturday night, with the only damage against his line coming on a Manny Pina groundout. While the rookie did push his streak of walking multiple batters to six straight starts, he has allowed just three runs in his last three outings. The Braves added everything but starting pitching at the deadline, so evidently they are confident that Muller and the rest of the rotation can keep them in contention. His next chance will likely come Friday against the Nationals.

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Notches second victory

    Muller (2-3) earned the win after allowing four hits and two walks while striking out three across five scoreless innings in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Mets.

    Muller was impressive in the first half of the twin bill and needed just 75 pitches to get through five strong frames. He appears to have performed well enough in each of his last two outings since being called up to remain part of Atlanta's starting rotation going forward. His next assignment tentatively lines up for Saturday against Milwaukee.

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Sticking in rotation

    Muller is scheduled to start the first game of Monday's doubleheader with the Mets, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    After being called up from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday, Muller got the ball for the first game of a doubleheader with the Padres. He allowed only one run over four innings in the start, but he needed 87 pitches to record his 12 outs and was stuck with the loss. Muller's solid numbers overall through his first five big-league outings (3.20 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, 23:11 K:BB in 19.2 innings) coupled with the depleted state of the Atlanta rotation means that the rookie should have some stability in a starting role for the remainder of the season.

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Inefficient in loss

    Muller (1-3) allowed one run on two hits and three walks over four innings Wednesday, striking out one and taking the loss in the first game of a doubleheader against the Padres.

    Largely due to the trio of free passes and the Padres working a lot of deep counts, Muller required 87 pitches to get through four frames. The rookie fared well in limiting San Diego's potent lineup to a single run, but the lack of run support while he was in the game resulted in a loss, his third in four starts. A frequent traveler between Atlanta and Triple-A Gwinnett, Muller now has a 3.20 ERA and 23:11 K:BB in 19.2 big-league innings this season and figures to stay in the starting rotation for the remainder of the regular season. He's expected to make his next start Monday against the Mets.

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Starting Wednesday

    Muller will start the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Padres, David O'Brien of The Athleticreports.

    Muller was originally scheduled to start Monday's series opener, but that game was rained out. Touki Toussaint will start Tuesday, with Muller moving back two days to pitch Wednesday.

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Monday's start postponed

    Muller won't start as scheduled Monday versus the Padres since the game was postponed due to rain.

    The young lefty was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett earlier in the day to make his first big-league start since July 3, but he'll need to wait a bit longer before retaking the mound. The game will be made up via a doubleheader Wednesday, so Muller still figures to start at some point against San Diego, though Atlanta has yet to announce it's updated pitching plans.

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Called up ahead of start

    Atlanta recalled Muller from Triple-A Gwinnett ahead of his scheduled start Monday against the Padres.

    As expected, Muller will slot back into the Atlanta rotation for the second half after he was sent back to Gwinnett on July 4 only because he wasn't scheduled to make another start prior to the All-Star break. The 23-year-old lefty found success over his first three big-league starts, allowing four runs on five hits and eight walks while striking out 19 in 14.2 innings. He should have a relatively long leash in the Atlanta rotation while all of Ian Anderson (shoulder), Huascar Ynoa (hand) and Tucker Davidson (forearm) are on the injured list.

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: On track to start Monday

    Atlanta is expected to recall Muller from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Monday's game against the Padres, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    The big club optioned Muller to Gwinnett on July 4, but his demotion was mostly a means of roster management, since his turn in the rotation wasn't scheduled to come up again until after the All-Star break. The young southpaw is now in line to get the ball for Atlanta's fourth game of the second half, after he impressed in his first four starts with the big club (3.45 ERA, 1.09 WHIP over 15.2 innings).

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Will rejoin Braves after break

    Muller will return to the Braves' starting rotation following the All-Star break, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    The Braves' schedule through Sunday doesn't necessitate a five-man rotation, so Muller was sent down simply to add an infielder in Orlando Arcia. Given his solid performance thus far in 2021, Muller figures to be a staple in the second-half rotation.

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Fans seven in loss

    Muller (1-2) took the loss Saturday as Atlanta fell 3-2 to the Marlins. He gave up three runs on four hits and four walks over 5.2 innings and struck out seven.

    The young southpaw came just short of recording his first career quality start, getting the hook after 102 pitches (60 strikes) when he issued a two-out walk to Jesus Sanchez in the sixth inning. Muller has provided the Atlanta rotation with a shot in the arm since his mid-June promotion, posting a 2.45 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 19:8 K:BB through 14.2 innings over his first three big-league starts.

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Braves optioned Muller to Triple-A Gwinnett following Saturday's game against the Marlins.

    The lefty has been decent, giving up no more than three runs in any of his three starts this season. Muller has a 3.45 ERA through 15.2 innings pitched, but apparently the Braves felt a greater need for a position player in Orlando Arcia, whom they recalled in a corresponding move.

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Earns first MLB win

    Muller (1-1) fired five shutout innings Sunday, yielding just one hit and two walks while earning a win over the Reds. He struck out nine batters.

    Muller was outstanding in his third big-league appearance, mowing through Cincinnati's lineup on the way to his first career win. He allowed just three base runners and worked himself out of a small jam with two on and one out in the third inning. The 6-foot-7 rookie now owns a 13:4 K:BB alongside a 2.70 ERA through 10 frames. Muller is projected to face the Marlins at home next weekend assuming he gets another turn in the rotation.
