Elder made his major league debut back in early April when he was pressed into duty as the team’s fifth starter. He made four starts, but struggled but struggled with his command walking 14 batters in just 19 innings. His last appearance on the major league roster was April 30. Elder has spent the rest of the season at Gwinnett where he has made 15 starts while posting a 4.65 ERA and a 4.41 FIP in 91 innings.
