After starting this season strong, Wisler quickly faded and ended up spending the past three weeks with Triple-A Gwinnett. The Braves have brought him back hoping he'll be more aggressive and willing to throw his changeup.

Foltynewicz has not been able to extend the consistency he displayed around the All-Star break. Fastball command has been spotty and he has not generated as many swings-and-misses with his slider or curve.
