Braves provide updates on Max Fried, Sean Murphy and Dylan Lee

Not only have the Braves won at an incredible pace to begin June, but they’ve also consistently received positive updates in regards to their injured players.

Last week, it was reported that Max Fried had begun to throw off a mound, and Kyle Wright has started throwing again. It’s reasonable to expect Fried to return around the All-Star break if he keeps progressing forward, which Mark Bowman has suggested is the case. Dylan Lee also appears even closer to a return.

“Max Fried and Dylan Lee are now throwing normal bullpen sessions,” Bowman stated. “Lee should be ready sooner, because the Braves will only have to build him back up to throw a couple innings at a time. Fried’s ETA remains after the All-Star break. How long after could come into focus soon.”

As Bowman indicates, Lee is going to need a lot less time to ramp up his activities than Fried, given the former is a relief pitcher. It seems possible we could see Lee make a rehab appearance before long. Bowman also had an update from Brian Snitker on Sean Murphy, who suffered a minor hamstring injury over the weekend. It seems like the Braves backstop will avoid an IL stint, but Snitker wouldn’t commit to a timeline.

“Snit acknowledged Murphy (hamstring) is feeling better,” Bowman stated. “But he also wouldn’t commit to when the catcher might return to action.”

With a comfy lead in the NL East and the best record in the National League, the Braves are in a prime position. They aren’t going to rush any of these key pieces back, but it does seem as if a lot of reinforcements could be on their way over the next couple of months.
