The Braves are still expecting Max Fried back next week in Philadelphia, optimistic that the bug will not only lose one start due to a blister issue.
Fried, 25, left her debut in Milwaukee earlier this week after a blister developed his index finger. He had repeated blister problems before, but Monday marked the first time he met the circumstances of this season. The team put him on the 10 day injury list.
“We will return it to him, he will give him a good start and we hope that he will end it,” said manager Brian Snitker at the time. He reiterated Saturday afternoon before Braves match against the Nationals at SunTrust Park that Fried is on schedule to return to Philadelphia the next weekend.
Fried rotation is a very important piece, with five engines without scoring in the beginning, on rotation loaded with uncertainties. In 21 it starts owned by 4.08 ERA with 102 strike and 31 walk.
At the same time at 103-2 / 3 innings, the Braves were going to put Fried spaces out in their first full season as a full-time beginner. Fried 59-2 / 3 spent a big league before 2019.
The Braves still could not lose it for a significant period of time. Their schedule helped them, which consists of two days outside a series of two games with the Royals next week. When the banners meet the Nationals on Sunday – with Kevin Gausman on the mound – they are not on Monday, they face the Royals twice, then they go to Philadelphia on another day.
Dallas Keuchel and Julio Teheran will start the two games Royals, Snitker announced Saturday. In theory, Mike Foltynewicz could be an option to start a second game, but Braves has no plan of when he will recall it from Triple-A Gwinnett.
The treatment of the staff of Mike Soroka and Fried during the months will be hanging out among the main sub-years. They need Soroka, who already have over 96 engines, and Fried fresh for possible postseason run.
