Braves send Wisler to Gwinnett and promote LHP Freeman after rough outing
Not even one day after giving up four hits and three earned runs on 1.1 innings of work, the Braves sent Matt Wisler back down to Triple-A Gwinnett in hopes that he will continue to perfect his pitches after being beat out for a spot in the rotation by Mike Foltynewicz.
Wisler has shown this year that he is not sharp on his pitches, leaving them high in strike zone and with little to no movement allowing opposing hitters to give him a 12.60 ERA for 2017. Lets hope Matt can find his groove and get himself back up to the big leagues as soon as possible as he is one of the Braves bright young stars.
The Braves have called up Sam Freeman, who previously pitched for St Louis, Texas and Milwaukee, brings a career record of 3-2, a 3.87 ERA, and 109 strikeouts in 116 innings of work. Freeman was drafted by St Louis Cardinals in 2008 with the 965 pick out of the University of Kansas. Freeman is known for his fastball and splitter.
