Braves' Max Fried: Fans nine in tough loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (7-7) took the loss Wednesday, giving up two runs on five hits and two walks over seven innings as Atlanta fell 2-1 to the Mets. He struck out nine.

The southpaw set a new season high in whiffs while tossing 67 of 106 pitches for strikes, but Fried still came out on the wrong end of the decision. He's delivered a quality start in two of his last three outings and eight times overall this year, leading to a 4.32 ERA and 94:32 K:BB through 91.2 innings.

Braves' Max Fried: Takes loss against Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (7-6) was tagged with the loss Friday against the Phillies after allowing four runs on six hits and four walks while fanning six across five innings.

Fried was coming off a seven-inning gem in his previous start against Tampa Bay, but he couldn't carry that momentum into this outing and he's now given up at least three runs in three of his last four appearances. The fact that he has failed to pitch more than five innings in three of those outings doesn't bode well for his upside, either. He has obviously been trending in the wrong direction of late after beginning the season on a strong note. He posted a 2.51 ERA over an eight-start stretch between May 5 and June 18, but he owns a 5.00 ERA over his last five appearances.

Braves' Max Fried: Shuts down Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried improved to 7-5 after tossing seven shutout innings Saturday in Atlanta's 9-0 win over Tampa Bay. He scattered four hits and a walk and struck out seven in the 96-pitch outing.

Fried did it all in his first start of the second half, silencing the Tampa Bay bats over seven innings while helping his own cause by going 3-for-3 with a double, two runs and two RBI. The southpaw has already endured two stints on the injured list this season, but he's now one of the few healthy members of an Atlanta rotation that has been gutted by injuries in recent weeks. In addition to Fried, Drew Smyly and Charlie Morton are the only members of the Opening Day rotation that are currently active.

Braves' Max Fried: Stumbles against Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (5-5) took the loss in Monday's 11-1 rout at the hands of the Pirates, coughing up six runs on seven hits and two walks over five-plus innings. He struck out five.

The southpaw was keeping things close until he hit the wall in the sixth inning and served up four straight hits before getting the hook, with all four runners eventually coming around to score. Fried had a 2.63 ERA and 0.92 WHIP over his prior four starts coming into Monday, but he's still prone to occasional blowups -- in 13 trips to the mound this year, he's been tagged for five or more runs four times. Fried lines up to get one more start before the All-Star break this weekend in Miami.

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

Fried (5-4) earned the win Wednesday against the Mets after allowing two runs on three hits and two walks while fanning seven across five innings.

Fried ended a streak of three straight quality starts with this performance but still looked solid in his return from the injured list, and he ended just one strikeout away from tying his season-best mark. The southpaw posted a 3.58 ERA across five starts in June and is expected to pitch again next week on the road against the Pirates.

Braves' Max Fried: Reinstated prior to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Fried had been sidelined since June 19 due to a blister on his left index finger, but he's now fully healed and will start Wednesday's game against the Mets. The southpaw had alternated wins and losses in his six starts prior to his absence, and he posted a 2.78 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 35.2 innings during that time. Left-hander Sean Newcomb was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move.

Braves' Max Fried: Finger fully healed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (finger) has fully recovered from the blister that landed him on the 10-day injured list, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

The lefty's index finger has no sign of the blister as he prepares to be activated and start Wednesday's game against the Mets. Early-season struggles are largely responsible for Fried's 4.21 ERA, as he's recorded a quality start in six of his last seven outings. Apart from the higher ERA, he's posted very similar numbers to his superb 2020 campaign through 11 starts.

Braves' Max Fried: On track for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (finger) is in line to return from the 10-day injured list to start Wednesday's game against the Mets, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Assuming he makes it through a pre-start bullpen session without incident, Fried will come off the IL one day after the minimum, as Atlanta gave Charlie Morton some extra rest by skipping his turn in the rotation this weekend and having him start Tuesday's series opener instead. Fried was placed on the IL after developing a blister on his left index finger coming out of his most recent start June 18 versus St. Louis.

June 24, 2021 07:08 PM
Braves' Max Fried: Expected to return next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (finger) should return from the 10-day injured list Wednesday against the Mets, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Fried has been on the 10-day injured list since June 19 due to a blister on his left index finger, but he could return to the mound when he's first eligible Wednesday. The southpaw put up quality starts in each of his three outings prior to his absence, and he posted. 2.37 ERA and 0.89 WHIP in 19 innings during that time.

Braves' Max Fried: Forced to IL with blister
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday because of a blister on his left index finger. The move is retroactive to June 19.

If the left-hander was bothered by the blister in Friday's start against St. Louis, he didn't show it, tossing seven innings of one-run ball while picking up his fourth win. With the move retroactive to last Saturday, Fried will be eligible to be reinstated June 29 against the Mets, though it's not clear at this point whether he'll require additional time on the shelf. Kyle Wright was recalled from Triple-A and is a strong candidate to fill Fried's void in the starting rotation beginning Wednesday against the Mets.

Braves' Max Fried: Cruises to fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fried (4-4) picked up the win in Friday's 9-1 romp over the Cardinals, allowing one run on two hits and two walks over seven innings. He struck out six.

St. Louis grabbed a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning against the southpaw, but Fried shut the Cards down after that as the Atlanta offense got rolling. He threw 68 of 98 pitches for strikes en route to his third straight quality start and sixth in his last seven trips to the mound, and Fried boasts a 2.59 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 35:14 K:BB through 41.2 innings over that stretch.

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.
