So what is Matt Wisler’s ceiling? He doesn’t have ace stuff but seems to have a good idea of what he’s doing on the mound.
But are hitters catching up to him? In his first five starts Wisler had a 3.10 ERA and 1.310 WHIP and struck out 6.5/9 IP. In five starts since he has a 6.43 ERA and 1.714 WHIP with just 5.1 K/9 IP.
The Braves go into 2016 with only two starters they can depend on, and one of them is finishing up his worst season. Beyond Julio T and Shelby, you have potential that’s still unproven. If Wisler’s struggles continue he shouldn’t be guaranteed a spot in the 2016 rotation.
One more night without Freddie. Not sure when Olivera will join the club though I expect you’ll see him by this time next week at the latest.
