Wednesday is Fried’s last game before the playoffs, and if he is healthy, he is expected to start the first game of a two-of-three match at Truist Park next week. This is Fried’s second outing, because he returned from the ten-day injured list due to a back injury, which made him pay a starting point. Ideally, the workload he recorded on Wednesday would increase by one week until the next outing.
Snitker is optimistic that Fried will avoid serious injuries, but he said the team will know more on Wednesday night and late Thursday.
He said: “The preliminary round is good, but tonight we will know more (in the future). He walks cautiously. We don̵
7;t want to take risks. … I think it will be fine. Tomorrow, we will see where he is, And plan from there.”
The 26-year-old Fried (Fried) ended his breakout season with a 7-0 record. He reached the 2.25 ERA with a 3.25 shot ratio in 11 games (56 innings). The left-hander performed a decimal rotation, providing the only reliability and consistency that the brave got from the group. He will be among the contenders for the Cy Young Award of the National Youth League.
