Fedde didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 9-2 loss to the Orioles, allowing one run on five hits over six innings while striking out two.
The right-hander was in line for his second win of the season after only Trey Mancini was able to solve him for a solo shot in the fourth inning, but the Nats bullpen reverted to its early-season form instead. Fedde's 3.50 ERA through 46.1 big-league innings looks solid, but his 24:19 K:BB leaves a lot to be desired. He'll likely return to the minors with Max Scherzer (back) on track to rejoin the rotation this weekend.
Fedde was recalled from Double-A Harrisburg ahead of his scheduled start against the Orioles on Wednesday.
As expected, Fedde will join the big-league rotation for a spot start with Max Scherzer (back) on the shelf. In 11 appearances with the Nationals this season (six starts), Fedde owns a 3.79 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 22:19 K:BB in 40.1 innings. Adrian Sanchez was sent to the minors in a corresponding move.
Fedde will be recalled from Triple-A Fresno to start Wednesday against the Orioles, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.
As expected, Fedde will join the big-league squad and take the hill for the series finale in Baltimore. With Fedde getting the nod Wednesday, Stephen Strasburg is now in line to start Thursday's contest in Atlanta.
Fedde was scratched from his scheduled start Monday with Double-A Harrisburg, signaling that he could be called up to join the Nationals and make a start as soon as Wednesday in Baltimore, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Due to an off day Monday, the Nationals won't need a new fifth starter to fill in for the injured Max Scherzer (back) until Saturday in Atlanta, but Zuckerman's report suggests the team likely won't wait that long to find a replacement for the ace. Even if Scherzer returns from the 10-day injured list to start when first eligible Saturday, Washington is apparently leaning toward using a new starter Sunday in that scenario rather than having rotation member Austin Voth take the hill on his normal four days' rest. If Fedde is in fact added to the rotation, deploying him Wednesday might make the most sense so as not to keep him idle longer than he already has been. He hasn't pitched for the Nationals or in the minors since July 2.
