The Atlanta Braves called up pitcher Bryce Elder from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Tuesday against the Washington Nationals.
This will be Elder’s major league debut on the mound, as he takes place for Max Fried.
Elder, just 22-years-old, posted a 2.75 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 137 2/3 innings last season across three levels in Atlanta’s minors.
The young righty will get a chance at the big league level today against Washington, so we’ll see what he can do under the spotlight.
