Fedde allowed five runs on six hits and three walks while striking out one in four innings of Wednesday's 13-12 win over the Phillies. He did not factor into the decision.
The righty's streak of three consecutive scoreless outings ended as he yielded five runs, four of which came on two homers. Walks have been a legitimate issue for Fedde, who's issued seven free passes over his last two starts and at least two in nine of 11 games this season. Even so, his 3.90 ERA ranks second in the Nationals' starting rotation behind Max Scherzer. Fedde is projected to face the Mets on Monday for his next start.
Fedde didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 1-0 win over the Mets, giving up two hits and four walks over seven scoreless innings. He struck out six.
The right-hander tossed 61 of 100 pitches for strikes while extending his scoreless streak to 20 innings, but he wasn't rewarded with a win as the Nats didn't come up with the game's only run until the ninth inning. The quality start was Fedde's third of the year, and he'll carry a 3.33 ERA and 49:24 K:BB through 51.1 innings into his next outing.
Fedde is scheduled to make a second turn through the rotation in Friday's series opener versus the Mets, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
With Max Scherzer (groin) recently joining Stephen Strasburg (neck) on the 10-day injured list, Fedde looks like he'll benefit from an extended run in the Washington rotation until both starters are healthy. After returning from the COVID-19 injured list last weekend, Fedde covered five scoreless innings (82 pitches) and struck out seven June 12 versus the Giants in what was his first outing with the big club since May 16.
Fedde (4-4) picked up the win in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Giants, allowing four hits while punching out seven in five scoreless innings. He did not issue a walk.
It marked Fedde's first start since May 16, as the right-hander had been on the COVID-19 injured list for nearly four weeks. He was sharp in his return, limiting San Francisco to just four singles while issuing no free passes on 82 pitches. Fedde, who lowered his ERA to 3.86 with Saturday's outing, lines up to start one of the games during next Friday's doubleheader against the Mets.
Fedde (COVID-19) was activated ahead of his start in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Giants.
It's not a great matchup on paper for Fedde, as the Giants' rank sixth in the majors with a 106 wRC+. He most recently logged five innings in a June 5 rehab start, so he could go deep enough to qualify for the win, but he will be facing Giants ace Kevin Gausman.
Fedde (COVID-19) will start Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Giants, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
It was already reported that Fedde would likely start one of the two games Saturday, and now we know that he will face Giants ace Kevin Gausman in Game 1. Fedde logged five innings in a rehab start June 5, so he could go deep enough to qualify for the win, but it's not a great matchup as the Giants rank sixth in the majors with a 106 wRC+.
Fedde (illness) will likely start one of the two games in Saturday's doubleheader against the Giants, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Fedde was initially expected to start Friday's matchup, but Max Scherzer will now start that game after Thursday's contest was postponed due to inclement weather. As a result, the right-hander will likely get an extra day of rest before he's officially reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list.
Fedde (illness) is expected to return from the COVID-19 injured list to start Friday versus the Giants, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The 26-year-old threw a bullpen session Tuesday and is on the cusp of rejoining the rotation after spending the past three weeks on the COVID IL after testing positive for the virus. The Nationals haven't officially confirmed Fedde as Friday's starter, but he's the likely candidate to take the mound with the rotation plans for the rest of the four-game series already announced.
Fedde (illness) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Fedde has been on the COVID-19 injured list since May 19. The right-hander made a rehab start with High-A Wilmington last Thursday, and he could line up to rejoin the big-league rotation Saturday. The Nationals have yet to announce their pitching plans past Wednesday, but Fedde is expected to step into Stephen Strasburg's (neck) rotation spot.
Fedde (illness) is expected to take Stephen Strasburg's (neck) spot in the rotation when activated from the injured list in the coming days, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Fedde has been on the COVID-19 injured list since May 19. The right-hander made a rehab start with High-A Wilmington on Thursday, allowing two earned runs on five hits and one walk across five innings (72 pitches). The Nationals have yet to announce their starting pitchers for the upcoming week, but Fedde figures to slot back into the rotation June 11 or 12 in Washington against the Giants.
Manager Davey Martinez said Tuesday that Fedde (illness) won't be activated from the COVID-19 injured list to start Wednesday against Atlanta and will instead make another rehab start for High-A Wilmington on Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
There were some rumblings of Fedde possibly being activated to take the ball Wednesday against Atlanta, but the club felt that the right-hander would not be sufficiently stretched out to do so. Instead, Fedde will continue to build up his arm strength in the minors before joining the club for the upcoming weekend series in Philadelphia. Assuming the Washington rotation remains at full strength for the foreseeable future, Fedde will likely have to settle for a long-relief role once activated.
Fedde (illness) will "probably" require a rehab start before he returns from the COVID-19 injured list, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Fedde has rejoined the Nationals in Atlanta, and previous reports indicated that he could be in line to start Wednesday's game. The right-hander threw 65 pitches in a four-inning simulated game Saturday, but manager Dave Martinez said Monday that he'd like Fedde to be more stretched out than that when he returns to the major-league roster. If Fedde doesn't start Wednesday's matchup, it's not yet clear who will take the mound for the Nationals.
The Nationals are expected to activate Fedde (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list to start Wednesday's game in Atlanta, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Fedde likely won't have a full-time spot in the rotation available now that he's poised to return from the IL, but the Nationals will need an additional starter this week coming off a doubleheader against the Brewers on Saturday. Fedde -- who tossed a 65-pitch, four-inning simulated game Saturday -- looks like the top candidate to fill the void. Since he would be pitching on three days' rest than the standard four, Fedde's workload could be more restricted than normal if he does in fact take the hill Wednesday.
Fedde (COVID-19) is scheduled to make a rehab start with Double-A Harrisburg on Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The 28-year-old has been on the COVID-19 injured list since May 19 after testing positive for the virus, but he's been cleared to rejoin the team and will get back up to speed in the minors. Fedde has a 4.35 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 36:18 K:BB over 39.1 innings (eight starts) this season, though it's unclear whether he'll rejoin the rotation or move to the bullpen once activated.
Fedde (COVID-19) has been cleared to rejoin the Nationals for team activities Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Fedde has been sidelined since May 19 after he tested positive for COVID-19, but he appears to be trending toward a return. Manager Dave Martinez said that Fedde will need to get stretched out following his absence, and the Nationals' skipper hasn't yet determined how the right-hander will be utilized once he returns, Maria Torres of The Athletic reports.
Fedde is on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday after testing positive for the virus, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
The 28-year-old landed on the COVID IL earlier in the day, and teammate Max Scherzer said after the win over the Cubs that Fedde was the Nationals player who tested positive for the virus. Fedde's return could be hastened by the fact that he's already vaccinated and is believed to be asymptomatic, but he'll be sidelined for at least a brief period.
Fedde (undisclosed) was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Tanner Rainey also landed on the COVID IL, with one of the two testing positive for the virus while the other is out for contact tracing, though it's unclear which player produced the positive result. Fedde's status in the starting rotation was already shaky with Stephen Strasburg (shoulder) nearing his return from the injured list.
Fedde (3-4) shut down Arizona on Sunday, going seven innings and permitting three hits and two walks with four strikeouts.
This was Fedde's best start of the season and his first going more than six innings and allowing zero runs, although it may be his last with Stephen Strasburg's (shoulder) expected May 21st return. The encouraging outing lowered Fedde's ERA nearly a full run from 5.29 to 4.35.
Fedde (2-4) took the loss Tuesday after allowing three runs on five hits and three walks over five innings in a 6-2 defeat against the Phillies. He struck out four.
The right-hander continues to struggle with his command and control. Fedde has issued multiple walks in four straight starts and served up four homers in his last three, leaving him with a 5.29 ERA and 32:16 K:BB through 32.1 innings on the year. Barring a turnaround over the next couple weeks, Fedde remains the most likely candidate to lose his rotation spot when Stephen Strasburg (shoulder) is back.
Fedde (2-3) took the loss Wednesday, giving up five runs on five hits and two walks over five innings as the Nationals were downed 5-3 by Atlanta. He struck out three.
All of Atlanta's runs scored on two homers, a Marcell Ozuna grand slam in the third inning and a William Contreras solo shot in the fourth. Fedde had only served up two home runs in five appearances coming into Wednesday, but the rough outing inflated his ERA to 5.27, although his 28:13 K:BB through 27.1 innings is solid. With Stephen Strasburg (shoulder) inching closer to a return, Fedde is running out of time to prove he deserves a spot in the rotation for the long haul.
