As expected, the Atlanta Braves placed starter Max Fried on the 15-day injured list as a result of a hamstring strain on Opening Day. Fried lasted 3.1 innings and surrendered just one earned run before exiting the game.

In a corresponding move, the organization recalled righty Bryce Elder to Atlanta. Elder battled for a spot in the starting rotation this spring but was beat out by Dylan Dodd.
Elder is expected to start today’s series finale against the St. Louis Cardinals and may find himself making a couple more starts before Fried’s targeted mid-April return.
