Braves demote starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz to minors
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/17/15) The Braves optioned starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday. He made his last start Saturday against the Mets.
The right-hander performed poorly in June, posting a 8.04 ERA in three starts. He has allowed less than four runs in just four of his nine starts. He is 3-2 with a 5.19 ERA.
"Sometimes when you're dealing with young pitchers, we've got to take a step back to take a step forward," manager Fredi Gonzalez said, per 680 The Fan.
Braves P Mike Foltynewicz allows 5 earned runs
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/14/15) Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz allowed six runs — five earned — in a no-decision during Sunday afternoon’s 10-8 loss against the Mets.
"You're not going to be perfect," Foltynewicz said, per MLB.com. "If it was that easy, everybody would be doing it. I'm just going through a rough spot right now. I know how good I am and I know my capabilities. I've just got to go out there and get that confidence back a little bit and attack guys. It seems like a broken record the past three starts."
The Braves did the bulk of their damage against Foltynewicz in innings three through five. Foltynewicz held the Braves to just one run in the first two innings before dealing with inconsistencies. He went 4 1/3 innings, gave up nine hits, walked one and struck out three.
"I didn't have it today, period," Foltynewicz said. "When a team gives you a five-run lead, you've got to go out and take advantage of it. I didn't do that today. I just left everything up from the start -- the fastballs, curveballs, sliders, and even the changeups were up today."
Foltynewicz now has an ERA of 5.19 this season.
His next start is projected for Friday when the Braves and Mets play each other again.

|(6/10/15) Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz gave up five earned runs in a no-decision during Tuesday night's 6-5 win over the Padres.
Foltynewicz steadily struggled as he only posted scoreless innings in the first and fourth innings. He surrendered 12 hits and one walk while striking out two batters. He now has an ERA of 4.72 this season.
His next start is projected for Sunday against the Mets.
Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz knocked around in no-decision
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(6/3/15) Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz endured a rough start and was unable to factor into the decision Wednesday afternoon against the Diamondbacks in Arizona.
Foltynewicz surrendered a two-run double to David Peralta in the third inning and a solo home run to A.J. Pollock in the fifth inning. He was charged with five runs -- four earned -- on eight hits and two walks while striking out five over 5 2/3 innings of a 9-8 defeat. Of his 101 pitches, 66 were strikes.
Foltynewicz's ERA ballooned from 3.96 to 4.29 after Wednesday's outing. He will make his next start Tuesday at home against San Diego.
Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz gets tough-luck loss on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/30/15) Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz went 6 2/3 strong innings in the 4-2 loss to the Giants on Friday. The young right-hander allowed two runs on five hits, walked one and struck out eight. The only runs he gave up came on a two-run home run from Buster Posey in the first inning.
Strangely, Foltynewicz actually struck out three batters in his final inning, but two of them reached on wild pitches. Luis Avilan was called upon to get the final out of the seventh.
Nevertheless, it was still an impressive outing for the 24-year-old. Foltynewicz will take a 3-2 record and 3.96 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Wednesday in Arizona.
|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.
