Report: Braves option pitcher Mike Foltynewicz to Triple-A
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/4/15) The Braves have reportedly optioned pitcher Mike Foltynewicz to Triple-A Gwinnett, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Foltynewicz was traded to Atlanta in January as a part of the Evan Gattis deal and battled for a spot in the starting rotation this spring. He posted 5.84 ERA with 12 strikeouts and eight walks in six spring training appearances.

|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/3/15) The Braves have not ruled out the possibility of pitcher Mike Foltynewicz starting the season in the bullpen, according to MLB.com. Foltynewicz struggled to make his presence felt and was unable to crack a spot in Atlanta's starting rotation. He posted a 6.35 ERA over 11 1/3 innings of work this spring.

Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz gets lit up in outing Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz struggled in his start Tuesday, going just 2 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on five hits, including two home runs.
Foltynewicz, who is competing for a spot in Atlanta's starting rotation, has been up and down this spring. In his last three starts, Foltynewicz has surrendered nine earned runs. He's up to 10 strikeouts in four appearances this spring.
"I just kind of started getting fast there in that last inning, and things started going downhill from there," he said to MLB.com. "Other than that, I went out there and battled the best I can. Unfortunately, things didn't go the way I wanted."
Braves scratch Foltynewicz due to bad weather, field conditions
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Braves starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz was scratched from his scheduled spring start Monday against the Astros due to inclement weather and poor field conditions, per MLB.com. Michael Kohn started in his absence.
Foltynewicz, who is competing for a spot in the rotation, is 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA in three spring starts.
|2014 summary: Hard-throwing Mike Foltynewicz wasn't a standout in his first season in Triple-A, but that didn't stop the Astros from giving him his first major league callup. Foltynewicz was promoted in early August, and he stuck around for the rest of the season in the Astros' bullpen. After registering a 5.08 ERA at Triple-A Oklahoma City, primarily as a starter, the former first-round pick posted a 5.30 ERA over 18 2/3 innings in relief. Though Foltynewicz got swings and misses at a 10.7 percent rate, he recorded just 14 strikeouts.|
Playing time status: Foltynewicz is one of those prospects who's more about projectability than results thanks to his triple-digit fastball, so the Braves were happy to take him off the Astros' hands in the Evan Gattis deal this offseason. He'll compete for the fifth starter spot this spring, but he'll obviously need to throw strikes more consistently to win it.
2015 outlook: Foltynewicz's skill set has been compared to Garrett Richards', who finally broke out in 2014 after years of growing pains. You can expect similar growing pains for Foltynewicz, but his strikeout potential is considerable. He's worth a late-round flier in NL-only leagues and gets a slight boost in Head-to-Head formats since he's also eligible at relief pitcher.
