Kyle Muller News
Oakland A's pitcher Kyle Muller was rocked for a second straight start on Monday versus the Chicago Cubs. While Muller lasted just four innings, he surrendered a whopping 13 hits including a home run while allowing seven earned runs to cross the plate. Forced into an Opening Day start due to some injuries to the A's rotation, Muller hurled 10 2/3 innings of three-run ball to begin his season but has struggled since. The big left-hander has been rocked for 12 earned runs across just eight innings over his last two starts. The 25-year-old will carry a 7.23 ERA into his next scheduled start on April 24 when he will take on the Los Angeles Angels on the road.
Oakland A's starting pitcher Kyle Muller will start Wednesday afternoon's game against the visiting Cleveland Guardians. The hulking 25-year-old started on Opening Day for the A's, turning in five innings of one-run ball with three strikeouts against just one walk as part of a no-decision against the Los Angeles Angels, going toe-to-toe against Shohei Ohtani along the way. Acquired in the off-season trade that sent catcher Sean Murphy to the Atlanta Braves, Muller was rocked for an 8.03 ERA in three starts with Atlanta last season but worked to a healthy 3.41 ERA and 29.3% K% across 23 starts at the Triple-A level.
The Atlanta Braves optioned left-hander Kyle Muller to Triple-A Gwinnett following his start against the Washington Nationals on Tuesday, in which he gave up two runs on six hits while walking one and striking out four in 4 2/3 innings. In corresponding moves, the team selected right-hander Silvino Bracho's contract from the minors and placed right-hander Huascar Ynoa (elbow) on the 60-day injured list. Muller has made only three starts for the Braves in 2022, allowing 11 earned runs on 13 hits (two homers) while walking eight and striking out 12 in 12 1/3 innings against the Texas Rangers, Miami Marlins and Nationals. He's allowed four earned runs in his last two starts over 9 2/3 frames.
Left-hander Kyle Muller finds himself in the Oakland Athletics organization in 2023 after spending his first two major-league seasons with the Atlanta Braves, the team that selected him in the second round in 2016. He was part of the three-team trade last December that sent catcher Sean Murphy to Atlanta. Muller was one of the Braves' top pitching prospects. He made his MLB debut in 2021 and has a 5.14 ERA (4.05 FIP), 1.37 WHIP and 22.9 percent strikeout rate in his first 49 big-league innings in 12 outings (11 starts). The 6-foot-7 southpaw has plenty of upside to become a full-time MLB starter, and he now has a much better path to a full-time role with the A's. In Triple-A in 2022, Muller improved his strikeout rate and dropped his walk rate while being dominant at times. There are certainly questions about the 25-year-old's control, but he'll be a fine target in deep-mixed and AL-only leagues.
