Braves' Max Fried: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (finger) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

Fried left his start Monday against the Brewers with a blister, and the issue is evidently serious enough for him to skip his next start. Bryse Wilson was recalled in a corresponding move to start Tuesday's game, but the Braves have yet to announce who will take Fried's spot Saturday against the Nationals.

Braves' Max Fried: Dealing with blister
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried was removed from Monday's 4-2 win over the Brewers after five innings due to a blister on his left index finger, Kelsey Wingert of Fox Sports South reports.

Fried was able to secure the victory after throwing five scoreless frames, but skipper Brian Snitker revealed after the contest that the southpaw's early removal was the result of the minor finger issue rather than a strategic decision. Snitker didn't comment on whether Fried will be able to make his next start, though the lefty's availability should become more clear in the coming days.

Braves' Max Fried: Strikes out five in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (10-4) gave up three hits and two walks while striking out five through five scoreless innings to take the win over the Brewers on Monday.

In the nine starts coming into this contest, the left-hander had a 3-2 record with a 5.77 ERA but delivered an excellent performance before having to exit the game with a blister on his index finger. Fried has a 4.08 ERA, an 8.9 K/9 and a 2.7 BB/9 through 19 starts this season. It is not clear at this point if Fried will be able to make his next turn in the rotation Saturday against the Nationals.

Braves' Max Fried: Gives up 11 hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (9-4) surrendered five runs on 11 hits across five innings to take the loss Saturday against the Marlins. He struck out seven and walked one.

Fried was in pretty good shape until the fifth inning, when Miami tallied three runs on four hits. The 25-year-old has a 4.29 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 97:29 K:BB over 98.2 innings and will head into the All-Star break on a sour note.

Braves' Max Fried: Notches six strikeouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried did not factor into the decision versus the Mets on Sunday, pitching five innings and allowing three runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six.

Fried gave up three runs in his first three innings of work but held the Mets scoreless over his final two frames before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the sixth. All of the hits he allowed were singles, and Sunday marked the third straight game in which he did not yield a home run. After a rough four-start stretch in which he gave up 17 earned runs in 20.1 innings, Fried has shown improvement by allowing seven earned runs over his last 17 frames. He'll head home to face the Marlins on Saturday in his next scheduled start.

Braves' Max Fried: Whiffs eight in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (9-3) allowed two earned runs on two hits and five walks while striking out eight across six innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Cubs.

Fried's eight strikeouts matched a season-best mark and were backed by an impressive 15 swinging strikes. That helped him overcome shaky control, as his five walks were also a season high. He wasn't punished for the free passes, as he allowed only one extra-base hit -- a double to Willson Contreras that drove in both of his earned runs. Fried entered Tuesday's contest with a 6.53 ERA in June, making the effort a welcomed bounce-back performance. He'll look to build off the start in his next turn, currently scheduled for Sunday at the Mets.

Braves' Max Fried: Gets improved results
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (8-3) allowed two earned runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out six across six innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Mets.

Fried kept the Mets' bats quiet, hardly running into trouble after allowing a run in the first frame. He showcased improved control, beginning 16 of the 25 batters he faced with a strike while also generating 16 called strikes. In addition, after allowing at least one home run in his past three starts, Fried was able to keep the ball in the park Wednesday. He'll look to maintain the positive results in his next outing, though he'll head to Wrigley Field to face the Cubs on Tuesday.

Braves' Max Fried: Bailed out by late rally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 9-8 win over the Phillies, giving up five runs on seven hits and two walks over 4.2 innings while striking out four.

The southpaw had trouble commanding his pitches, uncorking two wild pitches and serving up two homers, but Atlanta scored seven runs in the final three innings to take Fried off the hook for his fourth loss of the year. He's been shaky lately, failing to complete six innings in three of his last four outings, and Fried will carry a 4.11 ERA and 70:21 K:BB through 76.2 innings into his next start Wednesday, at home against the Mets.

Braves' Max Fried: Delivers quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried allowed three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out seven over six innings in Sunday's no-decision against the Marlins.

Fried gave up a solo home run in the first inning and two runs in the fifth on three hits, but his offense would get him off the hook for the loss by tying the game in the ninth inning. The 25-year-old lefty had struggled in each of his last two outings (nine runs over 9.2 innings), but he managed to turn things around Sunday. Fried will enter his next start with a 3.75 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with 66 strikeouts through 72 frames.

Braves' Max Fried: Struggles again on longer rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried allowed five runs on nine hits with three strikeouts and two walks across four innings during a no-decision against the Pirates on Tuesday.

The Braves' offense bailed out Fried, coming back from an early four-run deficit. Fried gave up all five of his runs with two outs in the first and second innings, and many of the hits he allowed came in two-strike counts. He simply didn't have enough swing-and-miss stuff to finish batters Tuesday night. Fried also has a pattern of struggling in starts following extended rest. He owns a 8.10 ERA in four starts for which he had at least five days of rest this season. Overall, Fried is 7-3 with a 3.68 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 59 strikeouts in 66 innings. He is scheduled to face the Marlins on the road in his next start Sunday.

Braves' Max Fried: Falls to Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (7-3) took the loss Tuesday as Atlanta was downed 5-4 by the Nationals, giving up four runs on nine hits and three walks over 5.2 innings while striking out five.

The three free passes and four runs allowed each tied his season high, which indicates just how consistent the 25-year-old has been so far. Fried now boasts a 3.19 ERA and 56:16 K:BB through 62 innings in his first full big-league campaign.

May 23, 2019 04:28 PM
Braves' Max Fried: Notches seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (7-2) earned the win Wednesday against the Giants after allowing two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five through six innings of work.

The 25-year-old ran on all cylinders at Oracle Park, tacking on an RBI in the second inning to give the Braves the first lead of the game. Pitching wise, Fried held the Giants at bay, with an RBI single by Buster Posey in the fourth and a solo shot by Tyler Austin in the sixth accounting for all of the damage against him. The lefty will carry a 2.88 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 52:12 K:BB into a divisional matchup against the Nationals on Tuesday.

Braves' Max Fried: Stifles Brewers for sixth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (6-2) picked up the win in Friday's 12-8 victory over the Brewers, giving up two hits and two walks over six scoreless innings while striking out five.

The southpaw's performance is even more remarkable considering the final score, but Fried kept Milwaukee's bats off-balance for 79 pitches (50 strikes) before he checked out with a seemingly very secure 12-0 lead. He'll take a 2.86 ERA and 46:11 K:BB through 50.1 innings into his next start Wednesday in San Francisco.

Braves' Max Fried: Fans seven in fifth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (5-2) picked up the win after allowing three runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out seven over five innings Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Fried cruised through three scoreless innings before surrendering three runs in the bottom of the fourth, but he exited the contest with his squad up by a run. The 25-year-old's status was up in the air entering the day after taking a comebacker off his hand in his last start, but he proved his health by turning in a solid outing. The lefty owns a 3.25 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with a 41:9 K:BB over 44.1 innings this season.

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

Fried (hand) has been cleared to start Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Fried had a rough outing Tuesday against the Dodgers cut short in the second inning, when he was struck on his pitching hand by a line drive. There had been some initial fear the injury might cost Fried a turn through the rotation, but the southpaw will stick on his normal schedule after completing a side session Thursday without any discomfort. Fried shouldn't face any limitations during his eighth start of the campaign.

Braves' Max Fried: Feels strong during side session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (hand) threw a bullpen session without any setbacks Thursday, and he remains in line to start Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Fried's last outing was cut short, as he was forced to leave the game after getting drilled on his pitching hand by a comebacker in the second inning. However, he managed to avoid a significant injury, and after looking strong in Thursday's side session, he isn't expected to miss his next turn through the rotation

May 8, 2019 06:28 PM
Braves' Max Fried: Optimistic about making next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (hand) said he's optimistic that he'll be able to make his next scheduled start Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Fried exited his previous start in the second inning after getting hit in the hand by a comebacker. Fortunately, X-rays revealed no signs of a fracture, and the southpaw remains hopeful that he won't be forced to miss a turn through the rotation after reporting that his hand feels much better Wednesday. That said, a final decision regarding his status for Sunday's start likley won't come until later in the week. Should Fried be unable to take the mound, Sean Newcomb would be a candidate to step into the rotation for a spot start, assuming he isn't needed out of the bullpen prior to then.

May 8, 2019 01:20 PM
Braves' Max Fried: Status uncertain for Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried is uncertain to make his next scheduled start Sunday against the Diamondbacks after he exited Tuesday's 9-0 loss to the Dodgers in the second inning, when he was struck in his (left) throwing hand by a Alex Verdugo comebacker, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. "We're going to do everything in our power to go out and make that [Sunday] start," Fried said. "We'll see how the swelling is [Wednesday]."

Though Fried's upcoming availability is in peril, the club is likely just thankful the young southpaw avoided a more serious injury after X-rays revealed no signs of a fracture. As Fried himself alluded to, he's contending with soreness and swelling at this point, which could require more than a few days to subside. In the event Fried isn't available to pitch this weekend, Sean Newcomb may be the top candidate to pick up a start, assuming he's not needed out of the bullpen prior to Sunday.

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

Fried was diagnosed with a bruised left hand as X-rays came back negative after he left Tuesday's game versus the Dodgers.

Fried exiting during the second inning after being hit on his throwing hand by a line drive off the bat of Alex Verdugo. The 25-year-old should be considered day-to-day for the time being.

Braves' Max Fried: Leaves Tuesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried exited Tuesday's game against the Dodgers after being hit in the left hand by a line drive, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Fried made a couple warm-up tosses to see if he could remain in the game prior to being removed. The 25-year-old ended up being charged with four runs on four hits over one inning, and should be considered day-to-day until more information is available.
