by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Stults allowed seven runs on three hits over 3 2/3 innings of work. The seven runs were a season high for Stults. He also walked five batters and struck out five. His biggest mistake was surrendering a two-run home run to Ryan Braun in the first inning.

Braves' Williams Perez to start Wednesday; Eric Stults to bullpen


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) The Braves announced Sunday that pitcher Williams Perez will make his first major-league start Wednesday against the Rays, with pitcher Eric Stults moving to the bullpen.

Perez was rocked in his major-league debut, giving up four earned runs on two hits and two walks while recording just one out and serving up a home run in a relief appearance on May 8. He fared much better his next time out, giving up one hit and two walks in two scoreless innings while striking out two in two innings on Tuesday. Perez went 2-0 with a 1.33 ERA and 21:9 K:BB ratio in 27 innings across five Triple-A starts before being called up this month.

"[Perez] is a guy who throws strikes and he has a good mixture of pitches," manager Fredi Gonzalez said, per MLB.com. "He's a young guy that could help us in the rotation in the future. So we'll give him an opportunity to start."

Stults has lost each of his three starts in May, posting a 7.00 ERA and 12:2 K:BB ratio in 18 innings this month. He's 1-4 with a 5.36 ERA and 25:8 K:BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Stults went five innings and allowed five earned runs on six hits. He struck out three batters, walked one and allowed six hits. He now has an ERA of 5.36 for the season. He's posted a 7.00 ERA in his last three starts. 

"I haven't given up a lot of hits per se the last couple starts, but the ones that I have given up have been big ones," Stults said, via MLB.com. "It goes back to pitch execution."

Stults has anow allowed 14 earned runs in his past three games. 


Braves P Eric Stults surrenders three runs in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) Braves pitcher Eric Stults gave up three earned runs in Friday night's 9-2 loss to division-rival Nationals. 

Stults went six innings and gave up seven hits. But he did strike out seven batters. In his past two games, Stults has given up a total of nine earned runs and four home runs. Against Washington, Stults gave up two home runs — one each to Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth. 

Stults, however, wasn't responsible for the lopsided loss. Williams Perez and Trevor Cahill gave up a combined five runs in the eighth inning. Harper hit his second homer of the game, a three-run shot, off of Perez. Danny Espinosa went yard on Hill. 

Making his MLB debut Friday night, Perez now has a 108.00 ERA. 

As for Stults, he falls to 1-3 with a 4.84 ERA. 

His next start is projected for May 13 against the Reds. 


Braves' Eric Stults rocked in loss


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Braves starter Eric Stults gave up six runs on 11 hits in a loss to Cincinnati on Saturday. 

Stults pitched seven innings and saw his ERA swell to 4.91, as he fell to 1-2. He walked one, struck out two and gave up a pair of home runs. Stults threw 102 pitches, 66 for strikes.

"When you execute a pitch and you don't get the result that you think you should get, then obviously it's frustrating," Stults said to MLB.com. "So I definitely think it was frustrating to not get the results, but like I said, you gotta give them credit, and that's just the way it goes some days."

His next start is scheduled for Friday at Washington. 


Braves P Eric Stults picks up second win of season


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Braves pitcher Eric Stults allowed two earned runs during Monday night's 8-4 victory against the Nationals. 

Stults went 6 1/3 innings and gave up only four hits. He struck out three batters and walked three while throwing 59 of his 96 pitches for strikes.

"For me, it's just going out and throwing strikes and trying to keep guys off balance," Stults said after the game, per MLB.com. "That's something I've been able to do a little bit better, is keep guys off balance, kind of keep them in-between pitches, whereas the first couple of starts they were jumping on some fastballs because I was maybe throwing a lot more fastballs. So that's probably the biggest change. Trying to get them out front and then speed them up when they're looking soft. I think that's really the only thing I can tell you as far as a difference."

Stults improved to 1-1 for the season and now has an ERA of 4.03. He's projected to have his next start this Saturday against the Reds. 


Braves pitcher Eric Stults allows one run in no decision


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Braves pitcher Eric Stults allowed one run on four hits in six innings of work in Atlanta's 4-3 loss to the Mets Wednesday. 

"Unfortunately we weren’t able to pull it out there tonight," Stults said after the game, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "But I think as a starter you want to go out and give your team a chance to win, and I was able to do that. It just didn’t go our way tonight."

Stults worked efficiently throughout his start with his only blemish coming in the second inning. After allowing a lead off double to Eric Campbell, he advanced to third on a fly out to right field. Then, Wilmer Flores singled to center to drive Campbell home. Although he left with the lead, his bullpen betrayed him allowing a run in the seventh and eighth inning, leaving Stults with a no-decision.

"He did a nice job changing speeds," Gonzalez said. "He did a nice job doing everything he could to keep us in the ballgame."

Stults, who remains 0-1 on the year, lowered his ERA to 4.50 in 16 innings of work. He will look for his first win of the year Monday against the Nationals.

Eric Stults, Trevor Cahill earn final two spots in Braves' rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2015) Eric Stults, a non-roster invitee to spring training, was named the Braves' No. 4 starter in the rotation, and he'll make his season debut on April 10 at home against the Mets, manager Fredi Gonzalez announced Friday, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Stults, 35, owns a 1.89 ERA and has held opponents to a .250 batting average in five games (one start) this spring. The left-hander will make his final start of the spring Saturday against Baltimore. He'll make $2 million this season for cracking the Opening Day roster.

"He's been a guy, you look at his track record, the last couple of years he's pitched close to 200 innings," Gonzalez said. "You look at his starts and you look at his quality starts, he gets you deep into games. You need those guys on the staff, who get you some innings."

Trevor Cahill, who was acquired from Arizona in a trade on Thursday, has been named the fifth starter. Cahill, 27, allowed four earned runs in 10 innings of work this spring. He'll make his regular season debut with the Braves on April 11.

"... We feel like we got a guy with a lot of upside," Gonzalez said. "He's 27, good sinker, he'll pitch in our ballpark, which is a little more forgiving than Arizona. Get that sinker back and he can really help us."

Braves P Eric Stults fighting to make starting rotation


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Braves pitcher Eric Stults continues to battle to earn a spot in the team's starting rotation, per MLB.com.

"There's hopefully spots for all of us, but you obviously don't know when you're getting close to breaking camp," Stults said. "If we can push each other, hopefully it's going to make everybody better and make this team better."

In his last outing against a split-squad Nationals club, he pitched five innings giving up five hits and two runs. In four Grapefruit League starts he has an ERA of 2.57.

"I can't be disappointed," said Stults, 35. "Now, it's up to them to make the decisions based on what they want for this team. I feel like I've done my part. I've been able to get work in. I've been able to go out and get my pitch count within the [scheduled amount of] innings. That's the goal, and to be able to produce desired results as well."


Braves P Eric Stults impresses in Grapefruit League win against Tigers


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) Braves pitcher Eric Stults logged two scoreless innings during Thursday's 6-4 Grapefruit League win over the Tigers.

Stults gave up two hits but also got two Tigers players to hit into double plays. 

“The first time out in spring you don’t know what to expect,” Stults said, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “so my mindset is, I want to stay down in the zone and make them put the ball on the ground. For the most part, I was able to do that. Guys made some plays behind me to turn two, so that was nice.”

Stults, 35, is competing with Wandy Rodriguez for the fifth spot in the Braves' pitching rotation. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez was pleased with what he saw in Stults Thursday. 

“You can never have too much pitching, like we know from the past," Gonzalez said. "And all of a sudden we get bad news, or possibility of bad news with Mikey, and you feel good that you have some depth in the rotation.”

Error sinks Eric Stults, but he still pulls out a win


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/13/2014) An error disrupted Padres pitcher Eric Stults’ start Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Stults allowed five runs, two earned, on seven hits over six innings. He struck out two and walked one during the outing. Stults gave up a run in the first inning. After a leadoff double, Stults allowed a run-scoring single. He would settle in for the next three innings before an error derailed his performance in the fifth. A triple and single led to the first run of the inning. With two outs, Chris Owings reached on an error. With two men on base, A.J. Pollock drilled a three-run shot to center.
