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.

He was charged with four earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two over five innings of a 6-2 defeat. Of his 85 pitches, 56 were strikes.

Stults' ERA rose from 5.40 to 6.30 after Wednesday's loss. He will look to get back on track Wednesday against the Mets in New York.

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 release Wandy Rodriguez; Eric Stults in line for rotation spot?


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) The Braves released pitcher Wandy Rodriguez on Friday, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Rodriguez was competing Eric Stults for the fifth and final rotation spot, but revealed he was dealing with a shoulder issue after Tuesday's Grapefruit League start against the Astros. The move could open the door for Stults. The team is expected to announce that he is in the rotation later on Friday, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Rodriguez went 2-0 with a 3.13 ERA in six starts. He had a 23:8 K:BB ratio over 23 innings of work this spring.


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.”

Padres considering making changes to rotation alignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Padres manager Bud Black said Sunday he's considering altering the order of the team's rotation following a two-game series at Minnesota, per MLB.com.

Black said he will make his final decision after watching Kennedy throw a side session in Minnesota. Black could choose to skip over Eric Stults in favor of starting Kennedy for Friday's series opener against the Pirates.

"We'll look through when we get to Minnesota … whether Ian needs another day or two based on his side session [in between starts]," Black said. "He'll throw a side in Minnesota and we'll gauge where he is. We'll see where him and Tyson Ross and Stultzie line up when we get to Minnesota and see how that relates to the Pittsburgh series."

Eric Stults knocked around in another loss


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Padres pitcher Eric Stults was knocked around during another loss Sunday against the Braves.

Stults actually pitched well outside of one disastrous inning. In the third inning, Stults allowed two straight doubles to open the frame.

After all was said and done, six runs had scored.

Stults regained his composure for the next three innings, but the damage was done. With the loss, he dropped to 3-13 on the season. His next start will come against the Braves.
