Fried wore a protective bandage across the blister on his left index finger, which he won't be able to wear in an actual game, but he avoided any setbacks in the 76-pitch outing against his Atlanta teammates and should get the call in NLDS Game 2 next week after Spencer Strider handles Game 1.

Fried landed on the 15-day injured list Sept. 22 with a blister on his index finger, but the team was always hoping to get him back for the postseason.

Braves' Max Fried: Scheduled to start Thursday

Fried received the green light to return to Atlanta's rotation after throwing a bullpen session Monday without any protective tape covering the small blister on his left hand.

Braves' Max Fried: Throws bullpen session
Fried threw a bullpen session Monday without any protective tape covering the blister on his left index finger, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Braves' Max Fried: May return for next series
Fried isn't expected to make his next turn through the Atlanta rotation until the team's four-game series in Washington over the weekend after he developed a hot spot on one of his fingers in his most recent start this past Tuesday in Philadelphia, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Atlanta isn't overly concerned about the issue, and with the National League East division crown already secured, the team can afford to proceed cautiously with one of its top starters. Even if Fried is cleared to pitch later this week as anticipated, he could still have his workload managed to some degree as Atlanta looks to ensure that he's not too overworked heading into what the team anticipates will be a long postseason run....

Braves' Max Fried: Strong showing in no-decision
Fried did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing one run on four hits and two walks over five innings in a 7-6 win over the Phillies. He struck out six.
The 29-year-old left-hander's sole earned run came via the long ball when Nick Castellanos took him deep in the second inning. Fried blanked Philadelphia otherwise, but despite leaving with a 6-1 lead, he settled for a no-decision due to Philadelphia's late comeback. Tuesday's outing marked Fried's sixth consecutive start in which he limited the opposition to three or fewer earned runs, posting a 4-0 record with a 2.78 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 36:10 K:BB across 35.2 innings during that span. Fried is slated for a rematch with the Phillies in his next start, which is tentatively scheduled for early next week.... See More ... See Less

He wasn't quite as effective against the Cardinals, but he pitched well enough to notch his third straight quality start and victory. All of the runs Fried gave up came in the second inning, when St. Louis tagged him for half of the six overall hits he allowed. The southpaw has been very effective across his 12 starts this season, posting a 2.70 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 67:15 K:BB over 66.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
