Braves' Kyle Muller: Sent back down
Muller was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.
The southpaw was productive during Tuesday's start in Washington, allowing two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four in 4.2 innings. However, he'll head back to the minors as part of a move to make room for Silvino Bracho on the active roster. Muller spent most of the 2022 season at Gwinnett and posted a 3.41 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 134.2 innings over 23 starts.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Muller: Called up ahead of start
Atlanta recalled Muller from Triple-A Gwinnett ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday in Washington.
Alan Rangel was optioned to Gwinnett to clear room on the 28-man active roster for Muller, who is set to take the hill for Atlanta for the third time this season Tuesday. The 24-year-old owns a 5.49 ERA and 1.42 WHIP over 39.1 career big-league innings, but he was one of the International League's top strikeout artists this season, racking up 159 punchouts in 134.2 frames. The strikeout upside he offers along with the good chance he has at coming away with a win Tuesday against the 100-loss Nationals could be enough to make Muller an appealing streaming option....

Braves' Kyle Muller: Named Tuesday's starter
Muller will start Tuesday's game against the Nationals, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Muller joined Atlanta's taxi squad Monday and will be recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett a day later to make a late-season start in the majors. The southpaw gave up nine runs in 7.2 innings over two starts for Atlanta earlier in the season, but it's possible that he also makes a start next week in Miami if he performs relatively well Tuesday....

Braves' Kyle Muller: Trending toward start Tuesday
Muller joined Atlanta's taxi squad Monday and is expected to be formally recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Tuesday in Washington, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Atlanta looks set to temporarily expand their rotation to six men with a week and a half left in the regular season, paving the way for Muller to rejoin the big club for the third time this season. The 24-year-old southpaw hasn't been especially effective over his prior two spot starts with Atlanta this season, but he's been one of the International League's more dominant arms in 2022, compiling a 3.41 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 159:40 K:BB in 134.2 innings. With a strong showing Tuesday, Muller could earn himself another spot start early next week in Miami.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Muller: Sent down following matinee
Muller was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett following the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Marlins, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Muller started Saturday's matinee and allowed two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out five in five innings to earn the win. In spite of his strong performance, he'll be sent down to make room on the active roster for Bryce Elder, who should be available out of the bullpen for the second game.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Muller: Starting matinee
Muller will be recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to start the first half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Marlins.
Muller has a 5.49 ERA in 39.1 career major-league innings, but the 24-year-old lefty has looked quite good in 17 starts for Gwinnett this season. He's struck out 31 percent of batters while walking just 6.9 percent, leading to a 3.27 ERA. It's unclear whether or not he'll have a chance to push for a starting role down the stretch or if he'll return to the minors immediately after Saturday's game.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Muller: Recalled prior to start
Muller was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.
Muller's call-up was expected since he'll start the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against Miami. He's posted a 3.27 ERA, 122:27 K:BB and 1.10 WHIP in 99 innings over 17 starts in the minors this year, but it's not yet clear whether he'll have a chance to remain in Atlanta's rotation beyond Saturday's start. His status may hinge on the availability of Max Fried (concussion), who is currently on the 7-day injured list but could be ready to go when first eligible Monday.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Muller: Back in action for Gwinnett
Muller (hand) started Saturday for Triple-A Gwinnett, covering 4.2 innings and striking out five while allowing five earned runs on six hits and one walk.
Muller was back on the mound for Gwinnett for the first time since July 14 after he demonstrated enough progress in his recovery from a fractured right hand to return to action. The left-hander was fortunate to avoid an extended absence since the injury wasn't to his pitching hand, but the injury along with Atlanta's trade-deadline acquisition of Jake Odorizzi may have closed Muller's window for joining the big club in any case. Atlanta demoted struggling No. 5 starter Ian Anderson to Triple-a Gwinnett on Sunday, but Odorizzi is replacing him as a full-time member of the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Muller: Out indefinitely
Muller was hit in the right (non-pitching) hand by a comebacker last week and is not listed on Triple-A Gwinnett's list of planned starters for the next five days, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
The team is trying to get a splint made that will allow him to pitch, and he has not been placed on the injured list. It's unclear when he will be able to return, but Muller had been excellent lately at Triple-A. Over his last eight starts, the big lefty had a 2.25 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 61:9 K:BB in 52 innings....

Braves' Kyle Muller: Sent down following start
Muller was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.
Muller was called up prior to Sunday's start against the Rangers, and he allowed seven runs on four hits and six walks while striking out three in 2.2 innings to take the loss. The southpaw will head back to the minors following his rough start as part of a move to trim Atlanta's active roster to 26 players. Bryce Elder was also optioned to Gwinnett on Sunday, so it's not yet clear who will serve as the team's fifth starter next week.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Muller: Called up, starting Sunday
Atlanta recalled Muller from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday. He's scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Rangers.
Max Fried initially lined up to start the series finale in Texas, but he'll instead be saved for Monday's series opener against the division-leading Mets. Meanwhile, Muller will immediately jump into the rotation as a replacement for Bryce Elder, who was optioned to Gwinnett after being handed his third straight loss in Saturday's start against the Rangers. Muller, who submitted a 4.17 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 37:20 K:BB across 36.2 innings in nine appearances (eight starts) for Atlanta in 2021, was off to a hot start at Gwinnett prior to his call-up. In four starts for the affiliate, he amassed 28 strikeouts over 19.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Muller: Sent to minors
Atlanta optioned Muller to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.
Muller's demotion likely leaves Tucker Davidson as Atlanta's No. 6 starter, should the club elect to expand beyond the five-man rotation setup it ran out for most of 2021. As a rookie last season, Muller made nine appearances (eight starts) for Atlanta, posting a 4.25 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 37:20 K:BB in 36.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Muller: Rough outing Friday
Muller allowed four runs on six hits and two walks over 1.2 innings in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays. He struck out two.
The left-hander remains in the race for a rotation spot, but Friday's outing did him no favors. Muller's 8.53 ERA and 7:3 K:BB through 6.1 spring innings would seem to put him behind Kyle Wright, Huascar Ynoa and Tucker Davidson, and he will likely begin the season with Triple-A Gwinnett....

Braves' Kyle Muller: Quick start to spring
Muller gave up one hit over two scoreless innings in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies, striking out two without walking a batter.
It was a good first appearance of the spring for the southpaw, who's competing with Tucker Davidson and Kyle Wright for a spot at the back of the Atlanta rotation. Muller, a second-round pick in the 2016 Draft, got his first taste of the majors last season, and while he has a strong arsenal of pitches, his 12.9 percent walk rate will need some work if he's going to find consistent success....

Braves' Kyle Muller: Optioned after poor start
Muller was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Muller allowed six earned runs on five hits and three walks while striking out just one across 2.1 innings Thursday against the Reds. He was also charged with the loss, dropping his record to 2-4. Though Muller had pitched effectively in the rotation since early July, he is seemingly the odd-man out with Huascar Ynoa (hand) set to return Tuesday. Muller's demotion also suggests that Touki Toussaint will remain a starter until Ian Anderson (shoulder) is activated.... See More ... See Less
