SP - ATL
Kyle Muller will start for Atlanta on Tuesday against Washington.
Muller will start as the Braves added to their rotation to line up their best starters for the weekend series against the Mets. Muller looked really good in 134 Triple-A innings, posting a 3.41 ERA with a 29.3 percent strikeout rate.
Kyle Muller pitched five innings, allowing two earned runs on three hits and a walk while striking out five during Atlanta's win over Miami on Saturday.
Muller was recalled earlier in the day and got his first win of the season, in the first game of the Braves double-header, limiting the Marlins to two runs over five innings of work. He generated a solid 13 swinging strikes, five strikeouts and a 27 percent CSW on 73 pitches and may stick around with the team as Ian Anderson is anticipated to be sent back down to Triple-A Gwinnett following his start. On the season Muller is now 1-1 with an inflated 10.27 ERA and 1.83 WHIP with eight strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings of work. His next scheduled start is at home against the Astros on Friday.
Kyle Muller lasted only 2 1/3 innings against the Reds Thursday, allowing five hits, six runs (all earned), and three walks while striking out one batter. It was a blowout win for the Reds and Muller's record fell to 2-4. He threw 72 pitches, 45 were strikes. He carries a 4.17 ERA.
Muller was optioned to Triple-A after the game and he said he knew what things he has to work on. He made a favorable impression while up with the big club and most likely has a terrific career ahead of him. Huascar Ynoa will be activated to replace him in the rotation.
Kyle Muller pitched 4 2/3 innings against the Nationals Friday, allowing two hits, three runs (all earned), and two walks while striking out three batters. He did not factor into the decision. He threw 80 pitches, 51 for strikes. He carries a 2.88 ERA.
Muller is obviously not fully developed as an MLB starting pitcher yet, but he will get there, and his future looks good. To rely on him in fantasy right now is a bit of a stretch, you can probably find a better pitcher that has the ability to go deeper into games, thus having opportunities for wins and quality starts, on waivers but Muller does show promise.
Kyle Muller pitched five innings against the Brewers Saturday, allowing four hits, one run (earned), and two walks while striking out seven batters. The Braves breezed to a victory but Muller got a no-decision for his effort. He threw 87 pitches, 54 for strikes. He carries a 2.43.
Today the pitch count got away from him and manager Brian Snitker ended his day early, just not pressing the rookie just yet. Muller certainly appears to have a good future ahead of him.
