Braves News: Kolby Allard, Max Fried, more

Atlanta Braves news and notes from Tuesday

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Kolby Allard will be getting the spot start on Wednesday over Michael Soroka. This seems to be primarily a matchup-based decision, as the Twins struggle significantly with left-handed pitchers.

With that being said, Allard is not exactly an inspiring name at this point in his career and it sure would be nice to have...say a Max Fried, or even just a Kyle Wright in the rotation right about now. Although those two aren’t ready yet, they are apparently progressing well. Fried has thrown bullpens and his next step will be against live hitters. Wright is a ways behind Fried, just having started his throwing program. Fried may be back for the stretch run of the regular season if this timeline holds, while Wright will likely be longer.
