Braves: Max Fried reinstated from 10-day injured list, Sean Newcomb optioned to Gwinnett

Max Fried is back after the same finger blisters that bothered him earlier in his career landed him on the 10-day injured list.

Fried hasn’t been the same pitcher that he was in 2020, but the Braves badly need his presence on the mound. Hopefully, the new rule banning any lubricant on the baseball isn’t the root cause of his blisters. Fried is scheduled to pitch tonight in what feels like a must-win game against the Mets.

Sean Newcomb still hasn’t found his footing, as he has allowed six earned runs and a staggering 11 walks over his last 7.1 innings pitched. Hopefully, he can get back to work in Gwinnett and focus on finding the strike zone.
