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.

Eric Stults shut out the Rockies over 6 1/3 innings, scattering seven hits, in Monday's 1-0 triumph.

Stults struck out five and walked one. In so doing, the left-hander managed to stay tied with Philadelphia's A.J. Burnett for the most losses in the majors (8-17). That isn't to say he's pitching poorly. On the contrary, Stults, who was 3-13 with a 5.22 on July 27, has gone 5-4 with a 2.90 ERA in his 10 starts since. Stults' final assignment of the season takes place in San Francisco on Saturday.

Eric Stults allowed four runs on six hits over 4 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

This outing was the norm earlier in the season, but odds are that it will annoy some fantasy owners perusing box scores online on Thursday morning. Consider: On July 27, the left-hander sat at 3-13 with a 5.22 ERA. Not even Rotoworld could have predicted what happened next: Stults went 4-3 with a 2.81 ERA in his next eight starts entering play today. If you decided to play with fire in the fantasy playoffs, you just got burned. The 34-year-old hosts the Rockies in a decent matchup on Tuesday.

Eric Stults allowed two runs over six innings but took the loss against the Dodgers on Sunday.

Stults owns a 4.56 ERA, but he fell to 6-15 with the loss. Stults walked five and gave up five hits on the day. It doesn't get much easier for Stults his next time out, as he takes on the Rockies in Colorado on Friday.

Eric Stults pitched well over seven innings, allowing only two runs, but took a no-decision in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.

Stults at least avoided what would have been an MLB-leading 14th loss. The lefty allowed four hits and a walk and struck out only one. Jhonny Peralta did all of the damage, belting a two-run home run in the second inning. Stults has pitched well since the calendar turned to August, now sporting a 4.64 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 81/33 K/BB ratio. He'll try to keep it going in a road start against the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Thu, Aug 14, 2014 11:33:00 PM

Eric Stults fired 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Padres' win over the Pirates.

Stults didn't walk a batter and scattered seven hits -- six of which were singles. He struck out six. The right-hander has been blown up at times this year, but he's now put together two straight dominant outings. Stults might have sneaky value down the stretch.

Eric Stults limited the Braves to an unearned run over 6 1/3 inning in a win Friday.

Stults has been an improved pitcher these last six weeks, though without really progressing to the point at which he'd be worth playing in fantasy leagues. He's now 4-13 with a 4.94 ERA on the season.
Sat, Aug 2, 2014 01:30:00 AM

Eric Stults allowed six runs on six hits over six innings in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

Stults hit rough waters in the third inning when the Braves collected all six hits and plated six runs. Otherwise, Stults was fairly good, allowing only one baserunner over the other five innings. However it happened, the southpaw fell to 3-13 with the loss. Perhaps he'll fare better the second time around, as Stults will draw the Braves again in his next start on Friday.
Sun, Jul 27, 2014 10:00:00 PM

Eric Stults allowed three runs while striking out seven over five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

The Cubs got to Stults in three of his five innings of work, as he allowed six hits and three walks on the night. The left-hander dropped to 3-12 with a 5.00 ERA on the year.
Tue, Jul 22, 2014 10:42:00 PM

Eric Stults surrendered three earned runs over five innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Rockies.

Stults was fantastic in his previous start, throwing seven scoreless innings against the Giants. But, as usual, Coors Field proved to be a tough test. He did strike out five without issuing a walk and will try to get back in the win column next week against the Mets.
Wed, Jul 9, 2014 06:26:00 PM

Eric Stults delivered a brilliant performance in Friday's win over the Giants, firing seven scoreless innings while allowing just four hits and a pair of walks.

The veteran southpaw struck out six in the ballgame. Despite struggling for most of the season, Stults had the Giants offense baffled for most of the evening in this one. Now 3-11 on the season, he'll look to further improve upon a 4.96 ERA and 1.46 WHIP when he does battle against the Rockies in Colorado on Wednesday. He should continue to be avoided for fantasy purposes.
