Braves' Matt Wisler torched for seven runs in blowout Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9/3/2015) Braves starter Matt Wisler had a rather forgettable outing against the Nationals on Thursday. The rookie right-hander lasted just 1 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs on five hits and three walks. Wisler needed 48 pitches (27 strikes) to record his five outs, en route to the 15-1 blowout loss.

Wisler (5-6, 5.97 ERA) has really struggled since the calendar turned to August. Over his last seven starts, he has allowed 32 earned runs over 31 1/3 innings of work, leading to a gaudy 9.20 ERA. He also owns a 18:20 K:BB ratio over that stretch.


Braves SP Matt Wisler denied run support in Saturday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2015) Braves starter Matt Wisler needed to be near-perfect Saturday against the Yankees. He was merely good - and that wasn't good enough.

Wisler yielded two runs on four hits in six innings with four walks and four strikeouts. That was two runs too many as his team got blanked during his stint in the game.

The lone runs against him scored on a wild pitch in the first and RBI double by Didi Gregorius in the seventh.

Wisler bounced back quite well from a horrible performance last Sunday, when he allowed seven runs in 2 2/3 innings against the Cubs.


Braves SP Matt Wisler rocked in loss Sunday


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/23/2015) After a strong start this season, Braves pitcher Matt Wisler has hit a rough patch, which continued Sunday in a rough outing against the Cubs. 

In just 2 2/3 innings, Wisler allowed seven runs and four home runs as his ERA soared to 5.43. It's the third straight decision he's dropped, falling to 5-4 on the season. 


Braves SP Matt Wisler receives loss in Tuesday's start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2015) Braves pitcher Matt Wisler had a decent outing during Tuesday's start against the Padres, but he received no run support in the 9-0 loss.

Wisler allowed two runs on six hits over five innings of work. He also struck out two and walked two. He received his third loss of the season, but lowered his ERA to 4.65.

Wisler has not won or received a quality start in his last four trips to the mound.


Strong start from Braves SP Matt Wisler wasted by bullpen


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/12/2015) Braves starter Matt Wisler pitched well enough to earn a win, but had to settle for a no-decision after his bullpen failed him in a 9-6 loss Wednesday. 

Wisler lasted just five innings, allowing seven hits and a pair of earned runs. But he was done in by a rising pitch count, reaching 96 before being pulled. Wisler struck out five hitters, while walking a pair. 

Wisler (5-2) now has back-to-back decisions following his second MLB loss. 


Braves SP Matt Wisler saddled with no-decision after poor effort


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2015) The bullpen blew a win Thursday night for Braves starter Matt Wisler. But he didn't deserve the victory anyway.

Wisler surrendered five runs on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings to Miami. He walked three and fanned three in the no-decision.

His struggles began immediately with an RBI single and sacrifice fly in the first inning. A Derek Dietrich homer added a run in the third and run-scoring single by Martin Prado tied the game at 5-5 in the fifth.

Wisler has struggled mightily over his last two outings with 12 runs yielded in 10 innings. The result is an ERA that has risen from 3.43 to 4.85.


Braves SP Matt Wisler gives up seven runs in lopsided loss


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/1/2015) Braves starting pitcher Matt Wisler couldn't get himself going during his start against the Phillies on Saturday.

Wisler allowed seven runs on eight hits, including two home runs, in just 4 2/3 innings of work. The seven runs were the most Wisler has allowed all season.

With the loss, Wisler dropped to 5-2 on the season.


Braves' Matt Wisler wins fourth straight decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2015) Braves starter Matt Wisler moved to 5-1 on the year with a win over St. Louis on Sunday. 

Wisler won his fourth straight decision and hasn't suffered a loss since June 25. He went seven innings and allowed two runs on seven hits. 

Wisler walked three, struck out three and didn't allow a homer for the first time since July 1, snapping a string of three straight starts. 


Braves SP Matt Wisler gets win despite four runs allowed


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/20/2015) Braves starting pitcher Matt Wisler earned his fourth win of the season on Monday against the Dodgers.

Wisler (4-1) tossed six innings, allowed eight hits and four runs in the win. He now has a 3.60 ERA in 35 innings of work this season.


Braves' Matt Wisler fares well in first trip to Coors Field on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/11/2015) Braves rookie right-hander Matt Wisler was solid in his outing against the Rockies on Saturday, but he did not factor in the decision. Wisler struck out seven, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks over six innings of work. But the Rockies pulled out the 3-2 win in walk-off fashion, giving the Braves their fourth loss in a row.

The only blemish on Wisler's day was a two-run home run by the red-hot Carlos Gonzalez in the first inning. After that, Wisler was able to settle in and avoid any additional damage

"I think that was probably the best I've felt this year in terms of keeping the ball down in the zone and mixing speeds," Wisler said, per MLB.com. "My slider was good tonight. The homer was just bad location. I was trying to get it above his hands and I just left it right where he could get to it."

Wisler heads into the All-Star break with a 3.10 ERA over his first five big-league starts.


Braves SP Matt Wisler receives win in Monday's start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2015) Braves pitcher Matt Wisler was one out shy of recording a quality start in Monday's 5-3 win over the Brewers.

Wisler allowed three runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings of work Monday. He also struck out six and walked one. His biggest mistake was giving up a solo home run to Gerardo Parra in the first inning. Wisler is now 3-1 with a 3.13 ERA.

Wisler has surrendered a total of three runs over his last 11 innings of work and he has won his last two starts.


Braves SP Matt Wisler gets rocked in second-career start


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/25/2015) Braves rookie pitcher Matt Wisler's second-career start was not as impressive as his debut last week. On Thursday, the right-hander lasted just four innings against the Nationals, giving up six runs (four earned) on nine hits. He did not record a walk or a strikeout in the 6-0 loss.

Wisler (1-1) gave up runs in each of the first three innings on Thursday, including a two-run home run to Ian Desmond in the second inning. After throwing eight innings of one-run ball against the Mets on Friday, the 22-year-old now owns a 3.75 ERA in his young career.

"It's going to be a learning curve and I still have a long way to go," said Wisler, per MLB.com. "Obviously I'm 22 and I still have a lot to learn. I've just got to watch this and learn from it. I'll think about it a little bit tonight, move on and get better."


Braves SP Matt Wisler earns win in MLB debut vs. Mets on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/19/2015) Making his Major League debut, Braves right hander Matt Wisler was outstanding on Friday against the Mets, as he picked up his first career win. The 22-year-old limited the Mets to one run on six hits over eight brilliant innings. He struck out two and did not issue a walk.

"I honestly felt more calm than I probably should have out there," Wisler said, per MLB.com. "I kept telling myself, 'Don't get too comfortable, because it's going to burn you.'"

The only run the rookie gave up came on an RBI single by Michael Cuddyer in the sixth inning. The last Braves to pitch eight innings in his big-league debut was Hall-of-Famer John Smoltz in 1988, against the Mets, according to the Braves radio network.

Wisler more-than-likely earned himself at least one more start, and he'll take his next turn on Thursday on the road against the Nationals.


Braves confirm top-100 prospect Matt Wisler to make debut Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2015) The Braves have confirmed starting pitcher prospect Matt Wisler will make his MLB debut Friday against the Mets. Wisler's promotion comes after the Braves optioned starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz to Triple-A Gwinnett earlier in the week, opening a spot in the rotation.

Wisler was one of the key pieces in the April trade that sent Craig Kimbrel and Melvin Upton Jr. to the Padres. 

The 22-year-old right-hander has a five-pitch repertoire, which includes a low-to-mid 90s four-seam fastball, a sinking two-seam fastball, a low 90s plus-slider, a changeup and a curveball, according to MLB.com.

Wisler, who is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 34) and MLB.com (No. 69), is 3-4 with a 4.29 ERA in 12 starts at Triple-A. He is 28-19 with a 3.53 ERA in his career.

"We may see one of those kids up here, Wisler in particular. We may see him up here soon," Gonzalez said, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Wisler was considered the Padres' top prosect by Baseball America before being traded Sunday. Wisler, who is also considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 34) and MLB.com (No. 69), is 25-15 with a 3.40 ERA in 396 2/3 innings in the minors.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The teams later confirmed the report.

Kimbrel led the league in saves in 2014 with 47 and a 1.61 ERA in 61 2/3 innings pitched. Upton will join his brother, Justin, in San Diego. He hit .208 with 12 home runs and 35 RBI in 519 at-bats in 2014.

Black: Morrow, Despaigne might have slight edge for No. 5 SP role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) While Padres manager Bud Black is not ready to put odds on the competition for the final spot in the team's rotation, he did seem to indicate Brandon Morrow and Odrisamer Despaigne might be a little ahead of Robbie Erlin and Matt Wisler , per U-T San Diego.

"I think we're going to look at them all, but Morrow and Despaigne have a little something to them," Black said. "It doesn't hurt Matt to go back to the minors. Robbie Erlin was in our rotation last year, made some starts and pitched well at times. He's still developing. I don't know if there's a front-runner, but you can maybe say that Morrow and Despaigne are out there just a touch."

Padres' prospect earns promotion


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2013) Padres starting pitcher prospect Matt Wisler was promoted from Class A Lake Elsinore to Double-A San Antonio Monday, according to MLB.com. Wisler is 2-1 with a 2.03 ERA and .196 opponents' batting average in six starts.

He struck out 28, walked six and allowed one home run in 31 innings in the hitter-friendly California League. Wisler entered the season as the Padres' eighth-best prospect, according to MLB.com.

"He has a plus-fastball, good natural movement and can run through a lineup," Lake Elsinore manager Shawn Wooten said last week. "The ball jumps out of his hand. He has a nice, slow rhythm. He knows how to use his slider, which right now is probably ahead of his curveball. He's a soft-mannered kid, but his demeanor is bulldoggish."
