After two solid performances in spot start situations, Winans struggled Monday allowing nine hits and seven runs over 4 1/3 innings against the Mets. He allowed two home runs and struck out four.
Shuster adds a fresh multi-inning option to the mix in case one of an early exit by one of the starters over the next few days. Shuster’s last appearance in the majors came on June 24 in Cincinnati where he allowed four runs in 3 2/3 innings. He’s made nine starts overall and has a 5.00 ERA and a 4.85 FIP in 45 innings.
The Braves have a couple of off days coming up and won’t need a fifth starter again until August 31. Collin McHugh pitched 3 1/3 innings and threw 48 pitches in relief Monday and likely will be down for the next couple of days.
