Eric Stults struggled in Saturday's loss to the Reds, yielding six runs on 11 hits over seven innings.
Though Stults survived through seven innings, they weren't of the quality variety. The Reds scored in a number of ways, knocking Stults for RBI singles, an RBI triple and three home runs. They ultimately compiled 11 hits and six runs on the veteran. When Stults left the game, his ERA stood at 4.91 and his WHIP at 1.30. He's not a viable fantasy starter, but he'll try to pitch better on a road date with the Nationals in his next start. May 2 - 11:36 PM

Eric Stults earned his first win of the season, holding the Nationals to two runs in 6 1/3 innings on Monday.

Stults has now pieced together back-to-back quality outings for the Braves. He limited the Nationals to four hits and three walks while striking out three on the evening. He'll bring a 4.03 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and a 13/6 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings into a weekend home start versus the Reds.
Apr 27 - 10:33 PM

Eric Stults pitched six innings of one-run ball in a no-decision versus the Mets on Wednesday.

Stults struck out five and walked none in his first quality start for the Braves. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to give him a win, so he's 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in three starts. There's no NL-only value to be found here.
Apr 22 - 10:32 PM

Eric Stults was charged with four runs over five innings in Wednesday's loss to the Marlins.

It wasn't pretty from Stults, as he gave up five hits -- including a homer and a pair of doubles -- while walking two and striking out two, needing 85 pitches to get through the five frames. Stults only went five innings -- and allowed three runs -- in his first outing of the season, as well, and might not be long for the Braves' rotation. He's slated to face the Mets on the road next.
Apr 15 - 2:52 PM

Eric Stults gave up three runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Friday.

Stults gave up back-to-back homers to David Wright and John Mayberry, Jr. in the fourth inning, but kept the Mets off the board otherwise. He fanned three and walked one. The Braves would probably sign up for a start like this from Stults on a regular basis. He figures to hold down a spot in the starting rotation until Mike Minor (shoulder) is ready to return, but don't expect any fantasy value.
Apr 11 - 12:24 AM

Braves purchased the contract of LHP Eric Stults from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Stults beat out Wandy Rodriguez for the Braves' fifth starter job this spring after posting a 1.89 ERA across 19 innings during Grapefruit League action. The 35-year-old should eat some innings until Mike Minor is ready to return from the disabled list, but he's not much of a fantasy option.
Apr 5 - 11:45 PM

Eric Stults has won the fifth spot in the Braves' rotation.

He beat out fellow veteran left-hander Wandy Rodriguez. Stults held a 1.89 ERA over 19 innings this spring, although he recorded just seven strikeouts. He's merely an innings-eater but isn't an awful fifth starter.
Apr 3 - 12:40 PM

Eric Stults pitched five scoreless innings in relief, allowing just one hit, for a victory against the Tigers on Monday.

Stults definitely aided his bid for the fifth spot in Atlanta's rotation today, and he'd seem to be the in-house favorite for the gig. Overall, he's allowed five runs -- four earned -- in 19 innings this spring, giving him 1.89 ERA. It's still quite possible the Braves will go outside the organization for a fifth starter, which could make Stults a bullpen candidate.
Mar 30 - 4:50 PM

Eric Stults allowed two runs over five innings as a Braves split-squad beat a Nationals split-squad 5-2 on Saturday.

Stults didn't quite match Chien-Ming Wang's line from the other split-squad game, but he still seems like the better bet of the two to us. Those two and Cody Martin would seem to be the remaining internal candidates for the final spot in the Braves rotation. However, it's quite possible the Braves will pick someone up to fill the role before the end of the spring.
Mar 21 - 5:05 PM

Eric Stults allowed one run and four hits over three innings in the Braves' 3-2 defeat of the Mets on Tuesday.

Stults has a great chance of opening the season in the Braves' rotation with Mike Minor set to go on the DL, giving the Braves two vacancies. Of course, that still wouldn't make him a very good pick in NL-only leagues. Stults has allowed one run in five innings to date.
Mar 10 - 3:50 PM

Eric Stults threw scoreless third and fourth innings in the Braves' 6-4 victory over the Tigers on Thursday.

Stults seemed like a pretty good bet to be the Braves' fifth starter anyway, but he could be a shoo-in for the rotation now that Mike Minor is having shoulder woes again. He was set to battle Wandy Rodriguez, Michael Foltynewicz and maybe Manny Banuelos for one spot, but now there could be two openings for that group.
Mar 5 - 4:47 PM

Braves signed LHP Eric Stults to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The Padres cut ties with Stults in November after he posted a 4.30 ERA across 32 starts last season. The 35-year-old southpaw is yet another name to add to a lengthy list of fifth starter candidates this spring.
Jan 29 - 5:41 PM

Eric Stults has elected free agency.

Stults was designated for assignment by the Padres last week. The southpaw should draw interest as a back-end starter, but he's unlikely to have the same success away from PETCO Park.

Padres designated LHP Eric Stults for assignment.

Stults had a 2.74 ERA over his final 65 2/3 innings (11 starts) in 2014, but the Padres needed to clear a spot on their 40-man roster. The 34-year-old southpaw should draw interest on the waiver wire.

Eric Stults held the Giants to one run in seven innings Saturday but took a no-decision.

Stults was sharp, scattering six San Francisco hits -- five of them singles -- over his seven frames. He didn't walk a batter and struck out five. The 34-year-old left-hander had a terrific second half and should be locked into a rotation spot for 2015.
