David Hale wins in spot-start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Braves pitcher David Hale tossed the ball well in his spot start Saturday, a 5-1 win over the Phillies.

Hale is now 3-2 with a 3.02 ERA in 53 2/3 innings. He is likely to return to a relief role after the start. He has appeared in 24 games, five as a starter.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Hale allowed a run to score on a throwing error by Freddie Freeman. He permitted a run-scoring single to Marlon Byrd, a sacrifice fly and a run-scoring triple to Reid Brignac in the 13th inning. He was charged with five runs -- two earned -- on three hits and three walks in one inning of work. He owns a 3.11 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP in 46 1/3 innings of relief.

Hale (2-1) worked a couple clean innings before running into trouble in the 13th, giving up three hits and a walk while also hitting a batter. The rough outing gives Hale a 2.78 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 20:19 K:BB ratio in 45 1/3 innings.


David Hale moving to bullpen


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

David Hale stellar in victory in possible final start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Braves starting pitcher David Hale kept the team's immaculate run going Saturday, tossing eight nearly flawless innings in a 4-1 win over the Reds.

Hale allowed one run to score in the first inning, allowing two hits and a walk en route. He would allow just one more baserunner to reach via walk in the outing, finishing with one run allowed on two hits and two walks in eight innings of work, while striking out four batters.

Hale earned his first win in the outing, and is now 1-0 with a 2.31 ERA in four starts, with his future undetermined. With Mike Minor set to return from the disabled lsit this week, Hale could be out of the rotation.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

(4/22/2014) The Braves announced starting pitcher Mike Minor (shoulder) will make one more rehab outing before rejoining the rotation, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Minor will pitch Friday for Double-A Mississippi.

David Hale pitches well in likely final start for now


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2014) Braves starting pitcher David Hale might have made his last start for the time being Sunday against the Mets, but he gave another strong effort in a no-decision. He allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks, while striking out five in six innings.

Hale ran into some early trouble as the Mets went up 1-0 in the first inning on David Wright's RBI groundout. New York took a 2-0 lead on Dan Uggla's fielding error in the second inning.

Atlanta took a 3-2 lead in the fifth inning, but New York was able to tie the game in the sixth inning on another fielding error by Uggla.

The Braves are expecting Mike Minor (shoulder) to rejoin the rotation Saturday against the Reds, which would be Hale's next turn through the rotation. There has been no official word yet of Hale being removed from the rotation, but it seems likely with how well Aaron Harang is pitching. Hale has a 2.93 ERA through three starts.


Braves contemplating rotation for near-future


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Gavin Floyd or David Hale could be the odd man out when all shakes out for the sizzling Braves starting rotation, which boasts a major-league best 1.47 ERA this season.

The surprising start by Aaron Harang could result in Floyd not landing a starting spot when he completes his rehab from Tommy John surgery, MLB.com has speculated. Floyd gave up four earned runs in 4 2/3 innings in a rehab appearancce Friday for Double-A Mississippi. He will likely require at least two more rehab starts before he is ready to return.

Hale owns a 2.89 ERA in two starts for the Braves, but might be the most likely to be on the outside looking in once Floyd returns.


Rainout allows Braves to slightly alter rotation plans


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Following Tuesday's rainout against the Phillies, the Braves announced they would be skipping David Hale in the rotation. Hale was expected to start Tuesday.

David Hale struggles in second start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Braves starting pitcher David Hale came back to Earth in his second start Thursday, a 6-4 loss to the Braves.

With a few injured pitchers expected to return at some point in the next few weeks, Hale might not be long for the rotation. Still, he is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday against the Phillies.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

It remains to be seen how the Atlanta rotation and Hale's status shakes out.
