White Sox's Jared Shuster: In running for rotation spot
White Sox general manager Chris Getz said Friday that he expects one or both of Shuster and Michael Soroka (forearm) to open 2024 in the rotation, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.
Both pitchers were acquired from Atlanta on Thursday as the White Sox look to stock up on some much-needed rotation depth. Getz did say that he's not done in seeking starting pitching additions this winter, but as it stands right now Shuster and Soroka would each seem to have a good shot at a prominent role. Shuster held an ugly 5.81 ERA and 30:26 K:BB across 52.2 innings for Atlanta in 2023, but he's just 25 and was a first-round pick in 2020.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jared Shuster: Headed to Chicago
Shuster was traded from Atlanta to the White Sox on Thursday along with Michael Soroka (forearm), Braden Shewmake, Nicky Lopez and Riley Gowens in exchange for Aaron Bummer.
Atlanta cleared out spots on its 40-man roster with the move, though the exchange could also benefit Shuster. He made his big-league debut in 2023 as a spot starter and struggled to a 5.81 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with a 30:26 K:BB across 52.2 innings. Despite a track record of success in the minors, Shuster likely would have been a longshot to break camp in the majors with Atlanta as a result of his struggles, but he should have a more substantial opportunity to make a big-league impact with his new club in 2024....

Braves' Jared Shuster: Struggles in return to rotation
Shuster did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks over three innings against Miami. He struck out two.
It was a disastrous beginning for Shuster as the rookie surrendered a home run to Luis Arraez to lead off the bottom of the first followed by a three-run homer to Yuli Gurriel just three batters later. The lefty would then go 1-2-3 through the second inning before allowing a fifth run in the third, though only four of the runs were earned. In his first start since being recalled to the majors, Shuster saw his command issues resurface, and he's now allowed four earned runs in each of his last three big-league outings. He's also given up two home runs in two of his last three starts.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jared Shuster: Demoted after short start
Shuster was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.
Shuster was called up to start Saturday in Miami but will return to the minors after he surrendered five runs (four earned) across three innings. The rookie left-hander has a 5.64 ERA and 30:26 K:BB across 11 starts (52.2 innings) this season.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jared Shuster: Confirmed as Saturday's starter
Shuster will start Saturday's game against the Marlins, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Shuster was recalled to the majors Wednesday but has not yet pitched. His last outing came Sept. 8 with Triple-A Gwinnett, when he worked six innings. Assuming he's effective, Shuster should be able to work deep enough into the game to qualify for a win.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jared Shuster: Back in big leagues
Shuster was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.
Shuster looks to be in line for long relief for the time being, but it's possible he could net a spot start if Atlanta wants to give its rotation members some extra rest. The rookie left-hander holds a 5.26 ERA over 10 starts with the big club this season.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jared Shuster: Sent back to Triple-A
Atlanta optioned Shuster to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.
He won't end up getting another turn through the rotation after he stepped in as Atlanta's No. 5 starter this past weekend in place of the injured Yonny Chirinos (elbow). Shuster failed to escape the fifth inning in his start against the Giants on Sunday, taking the loss while giving up four earned runs on four hits and two walks over 4.2 innings. Atlanta called up right-hander Darius Vines from Triple-A in a corresponding move, and he could end up replacing Shuster as the big club's fifth starter this week if he isn't needed in relief over the next couple of days....

Braves' Jared Shuster: Surrenders four runs in start
Shuster dropped to 4-3 after allowing four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three over 4.2 innings in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Giants.
Making his first start for Atlanta since June 24, Shuster was solid enough through the first four innings, when he gave up two runs. He was knocked out of the game in the fifth inning, however, after he was charged with two more runs during the Giants' four-run frame. In between his last two MLB outings, Shuster made eight starts with Triple-A Gwinnett, posting an unsightly 7.32 ERA during that stretch. He now owns a 5.26 ERA and 28:24 K:BB through 49.2 MLB innings this season. If he sees another turn in the rotation, he'll likely face the Dodgers on the road next weekend.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jared Shuster: Confirmed for Sunday's start
Shuster will start for Atlanta on Sunday in San Francisco, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Shuster has been up with the big club for a few days and available in relief, but he has been slated to start Sunday as long as he wasn't needed out of the bullpen before then. The left-hander has been unimpressive to this point in the majors, posting a 5.00 ERA and 25:22 K:BB over nine starts.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jared Shuster: Summoned to big leagues
Shuster was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.
Shuster will provide some immediate protection for the bullpen, but according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com, he's also a candidate to draw a start Sunday in San Francisco, depending on how/if he's needed leading into the weekend. The rookie left-hander holds a 5.00 ERA and 25:22 K:BB over nine starts with Atlanta this season.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jared Shuster: Optioned to Triple-A
Atlanta optioned Shuster to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.
Shuster allowed four earned over just 3.2 innings in his last start Saturday versus the Reds and heads back to the farm showing a 5.00 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 25:22 K:BB across his first 45 major-league innings. It looks like Michael Soroka might be joining Atlanta's rotation Friday against Miami and it also appears that Kolby Allard will get another turn next week following his excellent outing Wednesday afternoon against the Twins....

Braves' Jared Shuster: Goes just 3.2 frames Saturday
Shuster allowed four runs on seven hits and struck out two batters over 3.2 innings in a no-decision against Cincinnati on Saturday.
Shuster got through a scoreless first inning but yielded at least one run in each of the remaining frames in which he pitched. The rookie southpaw was dinged for multiple homers for the first time as a big-leaguer and tallied a career-low 3.2 innings. Shuster also continued to struggle in the strikeout column -- he's fanned two or fewer batters in each of his past four starts. Though Shuster has shown some flashes in his first MLB campaign, he's not much of an asset in redraft leagues given his poor 25:22 K:BB and 5.00 ERA over 45 innings.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jared Shuster: Cruises to fourth win
Shuster (4-2) picked up the win Friday, allowing one run on five hits and three walks over 5.2 innings in an 8-1 victory over the Rockies. He struck out two.
Atlanta did all its scoring in the first four innings, giving Shuster more than enough cushion, but after blanking Colorado through five innings he faded in the sixth and got the hook before he could record his second quality start of the year. The southpaw has won four straight decisions over his last five outings with a 3.25 ERA and 1.12 WHIP, and despite a mediocre 15:11 K:BB through 27.2 innings over that stretch, pitching to contact will likely remain a winning formula with the Atlanta offense at his back. Shuster is next set to take the mound during a road series next week in Philadelphia.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jared Shuster: Improves to 3-2
Shuster (3-2) earned the win over Washington on Saturday, allowing three runs on eight hits and no walks over five-plus innings. He didn't strike out any batters.
Shuster wasn't exactly overpowering -- he induced only four swinging strikes and, for the first time in his career, didn't record a single punchout -- but the rookie nonetheless pitched well enough to push his record above .500 for the first time. The southpaw gave up only one run over 4.2 frames, but a two-run double by Lane Thomas with two outs in the fifth scuffed up Shuster's final line a bit. The hurler still came out for the next frame, but he was removed after giving up back-to-back singles to begin the inning. After surrendering four runs in each of his first two outings, Shuster has given up three or fewer runs in each of his subsequent five starts. That should be good enough for him to keep a spot in Atlanta's rotation, though he's a shaky fantasy option in redraft leagues given his overall 5.05 ERA and especially his poor 21:19 K:BB over 35.2 frames....

Braves' Jared Shuster: Picks up second win
Shuster (2-2) earned the win Wednesday, allowing two runs on three hits and four walks across 5.1 innings during a 4-2 victory over the Athletics. He struck out one.
Shuster has made four straight starts since being recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett in mid-May. He's finished at least five innings and allowed three or fewer runs in each of those appearances. However, walks remain an issue for the rookie left-hander, who holds a questionable 21:19 K:BB over his first 30.2 career innings. Regardless, the 2020 first-round pick figures to see plenty of work at the big-league level with Kyle Wright (shoulder) and Max Fried (forearm) not expected back from the injured list until July. Shuster's next start is scheduled during a three-game homestand versus the Mets.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jared Shuster: No-decision against Phillies
Shuster didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-4 loss to the Phillies, giving up three runs on three hits and three walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out five.
The rookie southpaw was headed toward his second straight win when he exited the game after 89 pitches (57 strikes), but the Atlanta bullpen couldn't make the lead hold up. Shuster has delivered three straight solid outings since rejoining the rotation in mid-May, posting a 3.78 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 15:6 K:BB through 16.2 innings, and he figures to build on those numbers in his next outing, likely to come next week in Oakland....
