Braves' Max Fried: Quality start against Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (3-4) took the loss Saturday as Atlanta fell 4-2 to the Marlins, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out four.

The southpaw came through with his second straight quality start and fifth in his last six outings, but Fried is only 2-3 over that stretch thanks to a general lack of run support. On the season, the 27-year-old has a 4.62 ERA -- a figure that stood at 8.44 before his recent stretch of strong outings -- and 49:18 K:BB through 50.2 innings.

Braves' Max Fried: Bounces back with win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (3-3) allowed a run on six hits and struck out four in six innings to earn the win Sunday versus the Dodgers.

Albert Pujols' RBI single in the fourth inning was the only damage on Fried's line. After a speed bump in Tuesday's messy loss to Washington, Fried appears back on track. He's allowed just one run in five of his last six starts. The southpaw's ratios remain messy after a poor start to the year, as he carries a 4.63 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 45:16 K:BB across 44.2 innings overall. His next start is expected to be in Miami next weekend.

Braves' Max Fried: Crashes against Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (2-3) took the loss Tuesday as Atlanta fell 11-6 to the Nationals, coughing up five runs on six hits and two walks over 3.2 innings. He struck out seven.

The southpaw hadn't pitched since May 23 due to a couple games being postponed over the weekend, and Fried looked out of sync as he uncorked three wild pitches and needed 92 pitches (64 strikes) to record only 11 outs. The outing snapped a string of three straight quality starts for Fried, but it's also the third time this season he's been tagged for five earned runs or more, leaving him with a 5.35 ERA and 1.55 WHIP despite a solid 41:16 K:BB through 38.2 innings.

Braves' Max Fried: Another postponement Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried won't start as scheduled Sunday against the Mets since the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Mets owner Steven Cohen reports.

It's the second postponement of the series as Friday's contest was also called off. The 27-year-old initially lined up to start Saturday, but was pushed to Sunday while Friday's scheduled starter Ian Anderson pitched Saturday. According to David O'Brien of The Athletic, Fried is now expected to take the mound Tuesday versus the Nationals, with Charlie Morton remaining on schedule to start Monday.

Braves' Max Fried: Start pushed to Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried is scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Mets rather than Saturday as previously scheduled, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Atlanta will push back the starting rotation as a result of Friday's postponement, so Ian Anderson is now on tap to start Saturday's contest. Fried has a 1.50 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 20:9 K:BB over 24 frames in four starts since returning from the injured list in early May, and he'll attempt to continue that strong stretch Sunday.

Braves' Max Fried: Strong across seven innings in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (2-2) earned the win Sunday, allowing a run on four hits and three walks with two strikeouts in seven innings versus Pittsburgh.

Fried allowed an RBI double to Bryan Reynolds in the first inning, but he was able to lock it down after that. The southpaw didn't miss a turn through the rotation after he was pulled from last Monday's game with hand cramps. The 27-year-old has allowed just a single run in each of his last four starts since returning from a hamstring strain. He's gotten his season back on track with the successful run and now has a 4.63 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 34:14 K:BB in 35 innings overall. Fried lines up to face the Mets next weekend.

Braves' Max Fried: Cleared for Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (hand) will start Sunday's game against the Marlins as scheduled, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

The left-hander was pulled from his previous start Monday after six innings due to hand cramps, but he's good to go for his next turn through the rotation. Fried has pitched well in three starts since coming off the injured list in early May with a 1.59 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 18:6 K:BB across 17 innings.

Braves' Max Fried: Dealing with hand cramp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried was pulled from Monday's game against the Mets due to cramping in his left hand.

This is positive news for Atlanta, as one of their top hurlers managed to avoid a significant injury. The team will continue to evaluate the lefty over the next few days to determine whether he'll be able to make his next scheduled start. Before departing Monday's start, Fried worked six innings and gave up a run on five hits and two walks while striking out eight.

Braves' Max Fried: Pulled with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried left Monday's game against the Mets due to an undisclosed injury, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. He allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out eight over six innings prior to suffering the injury.

Fried gave up a leadoff double to begin the top of the seventh inning, which led to a visit from Atlanta's team trainer and his removal from the contest. The lefty didn't appear to be in a great deal of pain or discomfort as he exited, but details of the issue have yet to be disclosed.

Braves' Max Fried: Solid in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried allowed one earned run on two hits and three walks while striking out four across six innings Wednesday against the Blue Jays. He did not factor into the decision.

Fried wasn't at his best in the outing, as he walked more than two batters in a start for the first time this season. However, he also managed his longest start of the campaign and held the Blue Jays to just one extra-base hit. The effort lowered his season-long ERA to 6.55, though his 24:9 K:BB across 22 innings suggests that he has deserved better results. Fried projects to take the hill Monday against the Mets.

Braves' Max Fried: Picks up win in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (1-1) collected the win in Wednesday's 5-3 victory over the Nationals, allowing one run on four hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out six.

Aside from a Yan Gomes solo shot in the fourth inning, Fried was sharp in his return from a hamstring strain, tossing 45 of 72 pitches for strikes. The southpaw had a rough start to the season, but now that he's healthy, he'll keep chipping away at his 8.44 ERA, with his 20:6 K:BB through 16 innings suggesting his ratios could improve rapidly.

Braves' Max Fried: Reinstated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

Fried's activation was expected, as the southpaw will start Wednesday's game against the Nationals. The 27-year-old completed a live batting practice session with no issues Thursday and will be pitching on normal rest. Fried posted an 11.45 ERA and 2.55 WHIP in 11 innings across his first three starts of the season before he was placed on the injured list.

Braves' Max Fried: Set to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (hamstring) will return from the injured list and start Wednesday against the Nationals, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

The 27-year-old completed a live batting practice session with no issues last Thursday and will make his first start in just over three weeks Wednesday. Fried surrendered 14 runs over 11 innings through his first three starts of the season before landing on the injured list with the hamstring strain.

Braves' Max Fried: Impresses during live BP session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Fried (hamstring) looked sharp while throwing a live batting practice session Thursday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

In addition to throwing with no discomfort, Fried was able to field bunts and cover first base without incident, according to Snitker. Atlanta wants to see how Fried feels a day after the workout before deciding his next step, but he looks like he could be ready to return from the 10-day injured list early next week. If that's the case, Fried would likely start either Tuesday or Wednesday in Washington.

Braves' Max Fried: Ready to face hitters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (hamstring) will face hitters in a live batting practice session or simulated game Thursday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Fried threw off a mound Monday, though it was apparently not live batting practice as previously reported. He could be in line to start in Washington next week if he gets through Thursday's session without setbacks.

Braves' Max Fried: Could return next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (hamstring) could be activated during Atlanta's early-May series in Washington, which runs from May 4 to May 6, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Fried has been out since April 13 due to a right hamstring strain. He threw off a mound Monday and will throw live batting practice later in the week, with an eye towards returning during the series against the Nationals if he gets through those sessions without setbacks.

April 26, 2021 03:48 PM
Braves' Max Fried: Throws live batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (hamstring) threw live batting practice Monday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Fried has been out for just shy of two weeks with a strained right hamstring. Atlanta has yet to announce when he'll be activated, but it's possible he returns over the weekend against the Blue Jays. With that series being played in an American League park, Fried wouldn't have to worry about aggravating his hamstring issue while running the bases.

Braves' Max Fried: Throwing side sessions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (hamstring) threw a side session and took fielding drills Friday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

The southpaw is making progress in his recovery from a hamstring strain, but as yet there's no timetable for Fried's return to the rotation. As he's already been sidelined for two weeks, he'll need some time to ramp back up even after he's 100 percent healthy, and Atlanta won't want to risk Fried aggravating the injury by rushing him back.

April 23, 2021 05:56 PM
Braves' Max Fried: Yet to advance to mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (hamstring) has been able to play catch but has yet to throw off a mound, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Fried has spent the required 10 days on the injured list but remains without a timeline to return to action. He was initially expected to miss just one start, but he'll wind up missing two at a minimum.

April 21, 2021 05:08 PM
Braves' Max Fried: Still day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brian Snitker said Wednesday that Fried (hamstring) is still considered day-to-day, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Fried has been dealing with a right hamstring strain that he sustained while running the bases, and it's not yet clear when he'll be cleared to return to game action. If the southpaw is forced to miss another turn through the rotation, Bryse Wilson would likely start once again Sunday with Drew Smyly (forearm) slated to return from the 10-day injured list Saturday.
