Attended Middleboro High School in Middleboro, Mass.

2017

In his second season in the Atlanta organization, made his major league debut after beginning the season with Triple-A Gwinnett... Went a season-best 6.1 innings in his MLB debut on 6/10 vs. NYM in the first game of a doubleheader, allowing one unearned run, four hits and two walks while striking out seven... He became just the second pitcher in Atlanta franchise history to go as long in his MLB debut and not allow an earned run…Larry McWilliams did so on July 17, 1978, also against the Mets, also in the first game of a doubleheader and also in Atlanta...  Became the seventh Braves pitcher to start against the Mets in his MLB debut...The previous six, including Hall-of-Famer John Smoltz on 7/23/88, combined to go 4-1 with a 2.35 ERA (10 ER/38.1 IP).... Finished with 108 strikeouts in 100.0 major league innings…His 9.72 K/9 was the second highest mark by a rookie starter in Atlanta franchise history (minimum 75.0 innings)...Only Brandon Beachy's 10.74 rate in 2011 was higher.... Became one of three rookie lefties to start for the Braves in 2017 (also, Luiz Gohara and Max Fried)… The last time the Braves had that many rookie lefties make a start in the same season was 1945, when Bob Logan, Lefty Wallace and Bob Whitcher did it.... Earned his first MLB win while becoming the first pitcher in Atlanta franchise history to begin his career with four consecutive quality starts with a 3-0 win over SD at Petco Park on 6/27... Struck out eight over 6.0 innings to lower his ERA to 1.48…The only other Atlanta starter to have a better ERA through his first four career appearances was Kyle Davies (0.77) in 2005... Went 6.0 innings and allowed three runs to lose his second start, 6/16 vs. MIA…The Braves did not score a run while he was on the mound in his first two starts…Since the franchise moved to Atlanta in 1966, no Braves pitcher lost his first two appearances despite collecting a quality start in both. Following his quality-start streak to begin his career, went 0-5 with a 6.55 ERA (25 ER/34.1 IP) over his next seven starts from 7/4-8/9 in which he faced eventual playoff teams Houston, Washington, Chicago (NL), and Los Angeles (NL) twice…Also faced Philadelphia twice in the stretch... Earned his first career home win, 8/20 vs. CIN to snap his five-game overall losing streak...Started his career 0-6 with a 5.02 ERA in seven starts at SunTrust Park...Held the Reds scoreless over 5.0 innings... Compiled a 3.99 ERA (21 ER/47.1 IP) over his final nine starts…Only completed 6.0 innings twice during that stretch (8/9 vs. PHI and 8/15 at COL)... Allowed 10 total home runs and just one over his final seven starts (35.1 innings)...Finished the season with a 25.2-inning homerless streak... Righties hit nine of the 10 homers against him… Righties slugged .427 against him, compared to .396 by left-handers... Walked eight over 24.1 innings (2.96 BB/9) in his first four starts, but then produced a 5.83 BB/9 (49 BB/75.2 IP) mark through the end of the season... Until his selection to the MLB roster on 6/10, spent the entire season with Triple-A Gwinnett... At the time of his promotion, tied for the team lead with 11 starts, while compiling a 3-3 record, 74 strikeouts and a 2.97 ERA…His strikeouts total was second most in the IL at the time of his promotion, while his ERA ranked seventh.

2016

Spent the year with Double-A Mississippi, tying for the Southern League lead with 27 starts...His 320 strikeouts over the last two seasons are the second most among all minor leaguers...He is 11 off the lead of Jaime Schultz...In his first season in the Braves organization, fanned 152, tied for 18th most among all MiLB players and most in the SL...His 9.77 K/9 ranked fifth best among qualifying minor leaguers...His 71 walks were tied for the 13th most in MiLB...Made two postseason starts...Took a no-decision in a Game 1, 6-5 loss of the first round against Pensacola and lost, 2-0, in Game 2 of the championship series at Jackson...Entered 2016 as the Braves' second-best prospect according to Baseball America.
