Braves starter Max Fried allowed two earned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Saturday.
Fried was actually in line to take the loss before Marcell Ozuna blasted a game-tying home run with two outs in the ninth inning to force the game into extra innings. He'll look to continue the momentum from a strong first outing when he takes on the Tampa Bay Rays in his next start.
Max Fried is scheduled to throw an intrasquad game on Tuesday.
This lines up Fried to start the Braves' second game of the season versus the Mets. Mike Soroka will pitch on Opening Day. Mike Foltynewicz and Sean Newcomb will then slot in behind Fried. Atlanta's rotation depth will be tested early on as Cole Hamles begins the season on the IL.
Max Fried allowed two hits and five walks while striking out three over 4 2/3 innings against the Twins Wednesday.
The five walks are a bit much but he pitched around the damage and his breaking ball and changeup looked solid, although he does need to work on the control. He'll be fine this year.
Max Fried pitched 2 2/3 innings Saturday against the Rays, allowing three hits and two walks while recording one strikeout. His outing was cut short for pitch count reasons.
Fried really struggled his first time out and this time was a little shaky as well. But, it's way too early to become concerned, or even slightly concerned. Fried is looking to build on his 2019 campaign and his ADP is only slightly lower than Mike Soroka's.
