Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Max Fried looked like an ace on the mound during Sunday's game against the San Francisco Giants. He went seven scoreless innings, three hits allowed, one walk, and seven strikeouts in the 3-0 win. All of the Giants hits in this game were singles, so Fried was able to limit the damage in this game. He'll take a 3.31 ERA and 1.16 WHIP into his next matchup against the San Diego Padres. Fried has been rolling lately and should be a fine streaming option despite a tough matchup.
Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Max Fried worked himself out of a handful of jams during Tuesday's game against the Washington Nationals. He went six innings, six hits allowed, one earned run, four walks, and five strikeouts in the 8-5 victory. The 27-year-old clearly had control issues with four walks, but managed to escape with limited damage. He'll take a 3.42 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 136/39 K/BB ratio into his next outing versus the Miami Marlins. This should be a favorable matchup for Fried, assuming he has control of his pitches.
Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Max Fried was tasked with a tough matchup versus the San Francisco Giants on Friday. He went six innings, five hits allowed, three earned runs, and five strikeouts in the 6-5 win. Fried actually left the game when it was 4-2, but the Braves were able to rally back and keep Fried undefeated for the month. It wasn't his best outing of the season, but fantasy managers should continue to lean on him going forward.
Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Max Fried had a standout 2020 season, but a look under the hood reveals it wasnt quite the step up from his 2019 as it might appear on the surface. His seven wins and 2.25 ERA in 11 starts were both fantasy ace-worthy, but Fried lowering his ERA from 4.02 in 2019 was in large part due to luck more than skills acquired, as he had a 4.32 SIERA and 4.05 xFIP in 2020. There was also a slight drop in his strikeout rate from 24.6% to 22.3% and an increase in his walk rate from 6.7% to 8.5%. The one thing Fried did considerably better in 2020 was limit hard contact, as he ranked in the 98thpercentile in both exit velocity (83.4 mph) and hard-hit rate (23.8%), both of which he ranked in the bottom half in 2019. It will be easy to see Frieds numbers and think hes a fantasy ace moving forward, but his 2020 HR/FB rate of 4.9% isnt sustainable across a full season, and his ERA will be closer to his 2019 mark. Fried is currently being ranked and drafted as a middling SP2 -- ADP of 68 as the 18th starting pitcher --which is where he should return solid value for fantasy managers. Pitching for the Braves will offer plenty of chances to rack up wins, just dont overreach expecting his 2020 numbers to be repeated.
