Braves get positive injury news on Max Fried

In case you missed it, the Braves opted to move Max Fried’s scheduled start back to later this week as a precaution after noticing a “hot spot” on his hand that could have potentially turned into a blister.

Fried’s dealt with blister problems at several points throughout his career, so it was a no-brainer for the Braves to act with the utmost caution when the issue was discovered. However, it does not appear to be something that will have an effect on him moving forward. The lefty ace threw a bullpen yesterday without any concerns and will make his scheduled start in Washington later this week.

Braves Country can breathe a collective sigh of relief. Atlanta’s pitching staff has experienced some troubles over their recent four-game skid, but as long as Max Fried, Spencer Strider, and Charlie Morton are healthy, you have to like their odds in any potential playoff series with their lineup.
