  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Issues season-high five walks

    Elder did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing four runs on three hits and five walks over 3.2 innings against the Phillies. He did not record any strikeouts.

    Elder got off to a rough start, issuing three walks in the first inning, including back-to-back walks to open the frame, which led to one run coming home for Philadelphia. Nick Castellanos accounted for the other three runs against Elder with a pair of homers. The right-hander has now allowed four runs in back-to-back starts, though Wednesday marked the first time since July 18 that he failed to make it through at least four frames. He also issued a season-high five walks in the contest while not recording any strikeouts for only the second time this season.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Surrenders four runs

    Elder allowed four earned runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out six across five innings Friday against the Marlins. He did not factor into the decision.

    The Marlins got to Elder early as three of his earned runs came in the first inning. He managed to settle in thereafter and tallied 14 swinging strikes on 92 total pitches and also induced six groundball outs. After a rocky stretch in the immediate aftermath of the All-Star break, Elder has maintained a 2.97 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and a 29:12 K:BB across 36.1 frames in his last six starts.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Fans nine in win

    Elder (12-4) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk over seven innings Friday, striking out nine and earning a win over the Pirates.

    The right-hander fired five scoreless innings before serving up a two-run homer to Jack Suwinski in the sixth. Elder's nine punchouts gave him a new season high, and it was his first time with more than five strikeouts since June 22. He's gone 4-0 with a stellar 2.30 ERA over his last five starts, lowering his season ERA to 3.38 through 162.1 frames. Elder is currently lined up for a start in Philadelphia next week.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Shaky command in no-decision

    Elder allowed a run on five hits and four walks while striking out four over six innings in a no-decision versus the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Elder was able to secure his second quality start in six outings since the start of August despite not having his best command Saturday. The four walks matched his season high, and he's failed to record more than five strikeouts in a start since June 22. The 24-year-old is at a 3.42 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 111:53 K:BB through 155.1 innings across 27 starts. Elder is tentatively lined up for a home start versus the Pirates next week.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Pitches well enough to win

    Elder (11-4) earned the win over Colorado on Monday, allowing four runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four batters over six innings.

    The outing was far from Elder's best, but that's hardly a surprise given that he was pitching at Coors Field. The right-hander nonetheless fared moderately well, giving his team six frames and departing with a 5-4 lead. That more than held up the rest of the way, as Atlanta used a late offensive surge to turn the contest into a rout. Elder thus recorded his third straight win, and he's posted a 2.45 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 10:7 K:BB over 18.1 innings during that stretch. Among qualified NL starters, he ranks eighth with a 3.50 ERA and 12th with a 1.21 WHIP on the campaign.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Stingy in win No. 10

    Elder (10-4) picked up the win Tuesday in a 3-2 victory over the Mets, allowing one run on two hits and three walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out three.

    The lone run charged to the right-hander scored after he'd left the mound, as Elder blanked the Mets for five frames before Pierce Johnson relieved him with one on in the sixth and promptly served up a homer to Daniel Vogelbach. Elder continues to offer little in the strikeout department -- he hasn't fanned more than five batters in a start since June 22 -- and since the All-Star break he's posted a 4.58 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 23:14 K:BB through 37.1 innings. With the Atlanta offense at his back he's won three of his last five outings, but he'll be a ratio risk in his next start, which is likely to come early next week at Coors Field.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Blanks Yanks for ninth win

    Elder (9-4) picked up the win in Tuesday's 5-0 victory over the Yankees, scattering one hit and three walks over seven scoreless innings. He struck out three.

    What few baserunners Elder allowed got erased by double plays, and only one Yankee even reached second base while the right-hander was on the mound. It was an impressive rebound after the 24-year-old coughed up 12 runs (10 earned) over his prior two outings, but since the beginning of July, Elder still carries a 5.79 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 21:17 K:BB through 42 innings. He'll look to stay on track in his next start, which is likely to come at home early next week against the Mets.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Stung for five runs in loss

    Elder (8-4) took the loss Thursday, allowing five runs on six hits and two walks over five innings against the Pirates. He struck out five.

    Elder began struggling in the bottom of the third, allowing three runs on two hits and a walk while also hitting Josh Palacios with a pitch. The right-hander managed to avoid any further damage over the next two frames but was again victimized by the Pirates' offense in the sixth before being relieved by Joe Jimenez. It was the fourth time in his last six starts that Elder allowed at least five runs, and he's now lost three of his last four decisions. He's surrendered 10 runs and 13 hits over 9.1 innings to open the month of August.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Command issues resurface in loss

    Elder (8-3) took the loss Saturday, allowing seven runs (five earned) on seven hits and three walks over 4.1 innings against the Cubs. He struck out three.

    Elder struggled with his command from the jump, issuing walks to Mike Tauchman and Nico Hoerner to lead off the game before then surrendering home runs off the bats of Dansby Swanson and Jeimer Candelario. The right-hander would be charged with only three of the five runs that scored in the frame due to a fielding error by Matt Olson, though he allowed another run in both the fourth and fifth innings. Elder has now allowed five or more runs in three of his last five starts, registering a 12:10 K:BB over that stretch.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Tosses seven standout frames

    Elder (8-2) earned the win over Milwaukee on Saturday, allowing one run on four hits and no walks while striking out three batters over seven innings.

    Elder was both efficient and effective in the outing, needing just 86 pitches (59 strikes) to get through seven innings. The right-hander pitched to contact, notching just six swinging strikes and three punchouts, but picked up his 13th quality start of the campaign -- tied for fourth-most in the majors. Elder looked like he could be hitting a wall when he allowed a combined 14 runs (12 earned) across a pair of starts in mid-July, but he's since bounced back to finish the month with consecutive strong outings during which he's yielded just three runs over 13 frames.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Bounces back with quality start

    Elder allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two over six innings in a no-decision versus Milwaukee on Sunday.

    After allowing seven runs in each of his last two starts, Elder was able to get himself back on track. He allowed a solo home run to Brice Turang in this contest, which was the fourth homer Elder's given up in his last three outings. He's surrendered just 12 long balls all season. The 24-year-old is at a 3.30 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 86:37 K:BB through 114.2 innings over 20 starts this season. Elder is projected for a rematch with the Brewers in Atlanta in his next start.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Stumbles again Tuesday

    Elder didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 16-13 loss to the Diamondbacks, surrendering seven runs (five earned) on seven hits and a walk over 2.2 innings. He struck out four.

    His defense did him no favors, but Elder also wasn't sharp and need 76 pitches (49 strikes) to record just eight outs. The 24-year-old right-hander has been tagged for 12 earned runs in six innings during his two starts bracketing the All-Star break, pushing his ratios up to a 3.31 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. He'll look to get back on track in his next outing, likely to come this weekend in Milwaukee.
