The Braves have made the roster move to officially add Bryse Wilson.

It was hardly a surprise that Bryse Wilson was going to be added to the Braves’ roster today. If you read our game preview that posted about an hour and a half ago, Bryse is getting the start against Milwaukee this evening. The only open question was what the corresponding roster move was going to be.

There were merits to moving several guys, at least on paper, that are on the pitching staff currently to give Bryse a roster spot, but the events of yesterday led to a more clear, although less good, option for the team.

Max Fried had to leave his start last night a bit early due to a nasty blister on his pitching hand. Manager Brian Snitker indicated last night that they were going to have to wait until today to determine whether or not the blister was going to cause him to miss his next start and, well, we now have our answer.

Bryse Wilson’s tenure at the major league level has been a mixed bag so far, although we are talking about a small sample. However, he did pitch well against the Phillies in his most recent start right before the All-Star break in going six innings while giving up two earned runs while walking two and striking out and striking out five. In four games with the big club this season (three starts), Bryse has posted a 6.14 ERA with 15 strikeouts in 14.2 innings pitched.
