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.

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.

How Kyle Muller and Clayton Kershaw became offseason throwing partners

“I got a proposition for you,” Hursh wrote. “What’s that?” Muller responded. “Clayton Kershaw needs a throwing partner,” Hursh responded. As he recalls this moment, the look on Muller’s face tells the story of his emotions. He couldn’t believe it. The young lefty who grew up idolizing Kershaw, the top southpaw in baseball at the time, could now be his throwing partner? Insane.

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: Can Kyle Muller work out the kinks and become a star in 2022?

— I wasn’t necessarily expecting Kyle Muller to be a major-league contributor last season, but his presence became necessary very early in the season because of injuries. His debut was shaky. It came in relief against the Red Sox, and he allowed two earned runs in just one inning. However, Muller followed it up with six starts in which he surrendered just six runs, helping the Braves weather the storm when they desperately needed it.
